Don’t say the BBC isn’t for everyone — 3 Comments

  1. Honestly, I can’t get too worked up about this sort of thing in the context of everything else the BBC’s pissing our money away on. After all, it’s what the World Service was invented for. Bringing the civilzed Voice of Britain to the uncultured natives, and all that.

    Although I suspect the BBC itself doesn’t quite see it in those terms. There’s an odd kind of doublethink among the busybody classes these days: they believe exactly the same thing as their Victorian ancestors – we, the credentialed European/American élite know best what’s good for the world, and intend to impose our ideas on it whether it likes them or not – but pretend, even to themselves, that they don’t.
