Kavi Ugl Posted November 10, 2012 Report Share Posted November 10, 2012 I see the publicity for this year's Children In Need has started but due to what's happened at the BBC of late in relation to Jimmy Savile this sits a little uncomfortably with me. The BBC have basically been found guilty of harbouring a paedophile(300 possible victims so far) and now they want the public to dig deep and give money to their children's charity!. Even today the BBC have had to issue an unreserved apology for wrongly naming Lord McAlpine in an abuse case and it just seems as if they haven't learnt a thing and don't know when to stop digging. They were in the firing line and their responce is to wrongly accuse an innocent man in relation to the same issues!!. Now, I'll hold my hands up and say that Ive never been a fan of Children In Need because of a) the draconian licence fee the fact that the BBC makes billions of Â£ per year from it and c) why should the poor man on the street give from their paltry wage/pension when the BBC is living in extravagance and paying their "stars" millions?. Why not just donate the money from the billions they get from the licence fee?. Nevertheless. I ask this in an open and honest way but will the recent events have an effect on this year's Children In Need?. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
