A recent comment from the Chairman of the digital, culture, media and sport select committee, Julian Knight, has said there had been a rise in people not paying the license fee saying since the broadcasters Anti-Brexit propaganda.
The Chair of the DCMS committee has told the Express, “The BBC, unfortunately, is still very, very Oxbridge and very very Remain, almost Rejoin.
“And that is where I think it is missing out a lot of the time.
“It needs to connect better with people.”
Many people over the age of 75 have also binned their license fee after some were told to pay up.
Julian Knight Continued, “We’re seeing growing levels of evasion, and the demand for licences paid by over-75s has worsened things exponentially.
“So, therefore, what the BBC must do is start reflecting the views of British people, and I’m afraid, at the moment it’s not doing that as well as it should do.
“That’s recognised by Tim Davie, which is good, and there have been some encouraging signs, but there’s a long, long way to go.”
In response to these comments, a spokesperson from the BBC has said: “Earlier this month we announced ambitious plans to deliver for the whole of the UK, ensuring our workforce and programmes reflect the communities we serve, bringing us closer to audiences and creating jobs and investment.
“We have also set out how we will boost career opportunities for people from all backgrounds and increase socio-economic diversity in our Diversity and Inclusion Plan, which includes a commitment to appoint 1,000 apprentices at different career levels.”
