DESPERATE BBC bosses say there’s no way to fund the licence fee for over-75s without sacking ALL their best-loved stars.

Far too much of its output is pointless, neither serving the public interest nor entertaining the average viewer.
Slimming down its sprawling empire could save millions — and stop elderly viewers having to fork out under the new licence fee regime.
Why not cut the regional news, which is driving local papers out of business?

He wants us to take him seriously. In return, we deserve to hear more from him.
THE meddling bureaucrats of the Health and Safety Executive have come up with their most ridiculous ruling yet after they told a master furniture designer to stop sweeping out his factory with a broom.

Let’s sweep away this cowardice and get a bit more common sense.
WHY are police wasting time going after a Brexiteer dad who joked about launching a “military coup”?

It’s an obvious waste of police time, especially when violent crime is soaring and officer numbers are under pressure.
And Brexit backers could be forgiven for wondering why they are yet again being accused of violence — when it’s the Remainers whose rhetoric is sounding increasingly threatening.
