BBC Radio 3′s “Late Junction”

Fiona Ralkington’s varied musical mix includes Alpine yodelling [Dear Jebus!], vintage German electronica [some Kraut in a black suit beating the living cuntery out of a ZX-81 with a fucking claw-hammer] “Transylvanian lament” [Buggery help us]! and a microtone piano.

Which (I am just listening to) and is just as piss-flappingly cunt-bugling dreadful as all the rest.

This is all brought to you due to the unique way the BBC is funded.

    Several completely disconnected statements spring to mind.

    1. BBC Offices have lots of windows to provide the corporate mushrooms with light.
    2. The manufacture of Molotov cocktails is fairly straightforward.
    3. ????
    4. Profit.

    If nothing else we could pass it off as a reinterpretation of Swan Lake in honour of Tony Hall as Threatmaster General of the BBC or a of Norman Carlberg Vietnam war-era retrospective.

    Remember – The BBC is unique because of the way it’s funds are extorted.

    Well,

    One more nail in the coffin of any credibility this site might have.

    Who the hell could take us seriously?

    Your site, your rules obviously.

    The BBC are the absolute epitome of everything that Libertarians stand for. They distort all contrary viewpoints within the UK as well as through their BBC Worldwide propaganda organ.

    Despite all of this, the UK public at large is forced upon pain of imprisonment to give 145.50 of their tax paid income to allow these propagandists, watermelons and Marxists to live lives of affluent luxury while they pour the poison of treason into the very ears of those who are forced to pay for it?

    I will oppose the BBC and the unique way it is funded until the day I die or preferably is forced into the real world of subscription and/or advertising based broadcasting.

    The BBC is the enemy within…

    So why were you listening to it? Put ya foot through the telly have yer?

    On the odd occasion I listen to Late Junction, it veres from dire crap to not so bad to really rather good, depending on your tastes.

    Some Director General or other decreed that Radio 3 lighten up and not just be for Classical junkies, so they did. And you ended up with Nose flute recitals, Gammalion Farting Orchestras, a bloke recorded in 1910 with a turnip in his ear singing songs outside a pub, and a rare 20 minute version of Dark Star by the Grateful Dead. It’s called eclectic playlisting.

    Until we get rid of the Licence fee and the BBC there is really no point in complaining.

    Where have complaints to or about the BBC got anyone anywhere? Points of View? You’ve got to be kidding me. We are being mocked by the very organization which uses the states monopoly of force against us to extort the funds to keep it running.

    Putting your foot through the TV may make you feel better, but from a Libertarian view you’ve just succeeded in destroying your own property.

    The BBC aren’t listening; have never listened, to either our elected government (except when Labour are in power, who share their weltanschauung) or the license fee payers. Why should they? the telly tax is guaranteed years, even decades into the future.

    The time for talk, complaint, reasoning or negotiation is over. What else is left but civil disobedience and direct action?
