We have to defend public service broadcasting
The BBC is far from perfect, but the solution is not abolition, it is reform.
For that to happen, the BBC must stay a publicly owned, fairly funded public service broadcaster, and we must work together to ensure it enshrines greater transparency, accountability and independence to better serve the public in the 21st century.
I am fully supportive of the grassroots campaign launched by We Own It and The New Weather Institute that is seeking to protect #OurBBC.
As such, I have also tabled an Early Day Motion (EDM) in Parliament on the BBC as an institution of national importance. Please write to your MP, and urge them to sign EDM #262 to save, protect and improve the BBC.
