Right here goes, I think it's a shocking amount to be given to charity, on the back of a budget by a so called "robbing Labour party".
So come on what's the views on here? me personally, I think any person that gives their hard earned cash to this, is a bit of a fool. The government,give a large part of the budget cash to these causes, then get the state broadcaster to co-erce us to whey in some more. |
I firmly believe this will cause a massive reaction in this forum, so if you disagree with my views, could you furnish me with what the French, Germans, Italians, Spanish and Portugese give to charity on a par with us, and if you thi nk their tax laws are on a par with ours.

The 'relief' is I didn't watch any of it. - It's called choice.

You're entitled to your opinion in the same way that people are entitled to give to charity.

It's called democracy.

I wonder how much it cost to wreck a garden,and an host of other things, like the Top Gear team did in last nights show. Perhaps that money and/or services could have been put to better use!.

I don't see what the problem is...

If you don't want to give to a charity don't, no-one from the BBC came round to your house & demanded a donation did they.

The BBC uses money from it's charitable fund to pay for this program, which in turn raised the best part of £20m for sports funds world wide, I'd say that's pretty good going really

Well, to view is to see and I see an imbecile.

Spikeychris,

don't be insulting, it's the mark of someone who can't "view" their opinion in an intelligent manner.

Well I think you all are neither but the initial post does seem to be OTT.

They don't need to come round as they have a presence in your living room and any other room that has a TV but of course you don't have to watch or donate.

I did not watch or donate.
