Memorandum submitted by Anthony Lynch
BBC news, both radio and tv, is required:
1. To state clearly that the audit ommission,
like the national audit office, like the statistics commission,
did not, does not, investigate the abuse, the costs, the use,
of courts throughout England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, for prosecutions
under the wireless telegraphy act 1949.
2. To emphasise that during the whole of
the last 10+ years, no chairman of the corporation has ever disclosed
to me personally, or to the public in general, the true total
number of individuals (in thousands), prosecuted in those courts,
each and every year, under the unique form of funding the grossly
undemocratic bcc monopoly.
3. To acknowledge, without fear, that the
present chairman (an economist?), is fully aware that the figures
published annually by the office for national statistics, are
downright worthless, totally useless, and are the bad outcome
of the long-running scandalous gross misuse of police officers,
manpower and materials.
4. To conclude, to confess with all humility,
that far from being the best bargain in Britain, the bbc is badly
in need of urgent reform in openness and above all transparency.
