Is it me or am is John Whittingdale’s ear pressed firmly to the buxom of ITV, Channel 4, and the other competitors to the BBC rather than the views of the more important people – the public.
The former BBC Chairman, Chris Patten has strongly criticised the culture secretary and accused the Government of ignoring the will of the public after plans to stop the BBC from showing popular shows like Strictly Come Dancing at peak times was suggested, calling them “ridiculous”
“Yes it really would be ‘distinctive’ to strike Strictly or Bake ¬Off from the schedules because they’re too good and too popular,” he said. “It would also be ridiculous. ”
