    That was a bit uncomfortable to view. Still I've always loved this show. I was in the audience years ago. It's even better live.

      Shows like these can last up to three hours but get edited to fit the programme schedule.

    Hislop gets 20k an episode. FFS! Nobody appears on a BBC for less than 10k. No wonder the bastards won’t cough up for all over 75s. I fcuking hate the BBC! Abolish the Licence fee now and make it subscription only.

    I get that Hislops's job is to investigate, but it often seems that the targets are selective. Mercer came off as genuine and with what's going on at the moment in parliament with democracy being thrown out the window in an Elitist power struggle, scrutinizing the private finances of MP's like Mercer at a time like this (and seemingly without much merit) is a bit like freaking out over seeing a house spider in the corner of the room when the building is on fire....I think there are bigger fish to fry...

    Hislop moaning about 85k for 4 hours work.

    Is his argument a little hypocritical?

      Hislop over the years has provided a valuable service specialising in exposing this type of financial abuse. Fuck Mercer; this was brilliant!

      John Lydon's interview recording that was played on Life Stories when he mentioned Savile in relation to his Gonna List. After giving his opinion about Savile, Lydon said to the interviewer "I bet none of this will be allowed out."

    Hislop is a comedian he should be paid what he's worth in the market, and he is not pretending like he's doing charity for the armed forces. And in the grand scheme of things 20.000 is not that much for the kind of work he does

    No wonder elitist fuckers like him are so out of touch with ordinary people.
    Makes you realise why BBC reporter John Sweeney said
    "It was so unusual to meet a white working class male in the Newsnight greenroom that me and one of my mates went down to have a drink with him.”
    Sweeney went on: “In the way, you would do with somebody from, you know, a CANNIBAL from the Amazonia.. erm Amazon or creature from outer-space.’

    I love Hislop but Mercer owned him when he pointed out that he's on 20k for a couple of hours work a week. And that comes out of public money!

    • cc c

      @• Haze • Exactly. That's why the BBCs tactics of harrasing and threatening criminal proceedings even taking people to court to pay for something they don't want or need even though it's voluntary is so wrong.

    • • Haze •
      • Haze • 10 hours ago

      cc c Still anecdotal. The fact remains, it’s voluntary. Actual provable fact.

      cc c 22 hours ago

      @• Haze • *Anecdotal? Lol. They are quotes from an official investigation. These are a couple of quotes lifted from news reports of the findings, hence why the BBC have commented.

    • • Haze •
      • Haze • 22 hours ago

      cc c Irrelevant to the point. Use anecdotal nonsense all you like, the fact remains, the TV licence is voluntary, no amount of try harding will change that.

      @• Haze • quote: "bosses are able to pick up bonuses of up to £15,000 a year for licence fee sales obtained with threats of court action.
      One manager is claimed to have said: “We will drive you as hard as we can to get as much as we can out of you because we’re greedy.”
      Following the results of the probe into Capita’s conduct, BBC Director-General Lord Hall wrote to say it had “fallen short of the standards the BBC has a right to expect.”"

      you are correct. I don't know you but I would rather give my license fee to you than the BBC. I simply despise everything they stand for.

    • fourstarist
      fourstarist 23 days ago +2

      insert name here The tv license is an unjust poll tax no one should be obliged to pay. Arguing about the over 75s actually obscures that fact and skews the narrative towards a consensus that the license, generally speaking, is a good thing. It is not. However, it's good to see the BBC being exposed as money grabbing parasites.

    • insert name here

They do know you have no choice in whether you pay for their "services" via the license or not. We are losers and mugs to them
