As BBC paedophiles run for cover, is it time to cut the bloated BBC down to size?

We now know that at least 5 BBC luvvies – DJs, presenters, singers and staff were involved in paedophile and rapist Jimmy Savile’s sex ring. Though the real number is probably over twenty. But we’re getting conflicting messages from the left-wing, permanently-biased BBC. Some people admit that the paedophilia and rapes were a well-known ‘secret’, while BBC bosses claim that nobody knew nothing.

At the centre of the scandal is a certain Esther Rantzen. She now admits that she had ‘heard rumours’ but was powerless to do anything. Pull the other one Esther. At the time of Savile’s sexual predation, Rantzen was one of the most powerful women in British TV and was married to Desmond Wilcox, Head of General Features at the BBC from 1972-1980. A cynic might conclude that Rantzen was just a selfish, publicity-seeking hypocrite, eager to cover herself with glory and get a peerage or OBE or whatever it was she was after for her work with Childline to protect abused children, while she turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to what her chums at the Beeb were up to.

As for the BBC’s new Director-General, George Entwistle, despite about 19 years at the Beeb, he apparently ‘knew nothing’ and has been ‘horrified’ by the revelations. Hold on George, you were once editor of Newsnight and it was Newsnight which recently did an investigation into Savile’s paedophilia and rapes – an investigation that was never broadcast. But you knew nothing! I believe you George Entwistle, but others might not.

However, the repulsive paedophile and rapist Savile may have done us all a favour. His antics have exposed the BBC as a rotten, bloated, self-serving bureaucracy, paying massive salaries and pensions to its managers and ‘stars’ and always out to protect its own. I believe the BBC has lost sight of its purpose – to provide a public service. The BBC should not be trying to compete for viewers with the commercial channels. They are there to produce ratings-obsessed trash. The BBC should be complementing commercial channels, not duplicating what they do.

Perhaps it’s time to halve the bloated BBC’s budget. Then the BBC can close the rubbish BBC3, sell off its ‘hit shows’, let its multimillionaire ‘stars’ go and work for the commercial channels and refocus our money on quality news, current affairs, documentaries and drama. It’s time to cut the bloated, paedophile-protecting Beeb down to size and stop it wasting our money. And George Entwistle, perhaps you should resign your well-paid, well-pensioned job and tell the police what you really did know.
