    The BBC is to change its name to the Black Broadcasting Collective our special reporter found out today,after an exclusive interview with the chief of the BBC.He was taken to the far side of the moon where the chief has his luxury home.There he found the chief holding a spear and dressed in Zulu tribal ceremonial clothing."I have changed my name to Kunta Kinte to show solidarity with my black brothers and sisters." He proclaimed.He then went on to announce plans for a new show entitled the The Black and Blacker Minstrel show in which white performers would blacken their faces and black performers would blacken their faces even more."Thank god I'm black and understand these things!"Cried the chief.When our special reporter pointed out that he was in fact a rich,privileged white man.The chief became enraged and said"I meant in spirit you stupid white prole!"He then began a Zulu dance,cried"Uhuru!" and threw his spear into the back of the door.At this point our reporter prostrated before the chief and thanked him for granting him an audience.He then went and took the first rocket home.

    The BBC is the only website I have encountered which greeted me with the words "feck off Paddy". Or words to that effect. Whereas I am welcomed at Channel 4.

    I see this is most disturbing.However I expect you know that commoners like me in the UK have to pay a TV licence or be sent to Siberia.So if you get your TV for free please be generous and send a couple of grand to the chief of the BBC,he will spend it wisely,I can assure you.

    Do you think the Irish government would let us have television without a TV licence?

    Paying for it on the other hand.......

    To be honest I do not know the situation with Irish TV, I do know I'd like the TV licence abolished in the UK.

    Ireland is virtually the same as the UK, we pay for the State Broadcaster RTE. €160 per year.

    None of the money goes to fund Independence TV channels.

    There was talk of changing it to a telecommunications licence, to catch anyone with a mobile, phone, Internet etc, but that seems to have been put on the back burner for now.
