The BBC Trust has today published the conclusions to the first of it's two election consultations.

Of the 25 million licence fee payers, 61 (YES SIXTY ONE) contributed to the discussion on what the countries largest media organisation will be broadcasting to us.

The BBC Trumpton parody twitter account has more followers... although it is more entertaining I'll grant you.

Anyway, this tome of democracy can be read at the link below.

Interesting contributions, one from Mebyon Kernow/Party for Cornwall includes:



We would also wish to point out that, last year, our organisation was 'featured' in the BBC comedy / mockumentary W1A.

On the BBC's website, it was promoted as follows:

'Ian Fletcher's first challenge on arriving at New Broadcasting House, on his brand new and much-improved folding bike, is to find somewhere to sit in a building aggressively over designed around the principle of not having a desk. Ian finds himself holding the hottest of hot potatoes when Mebyon Kernow activist Nigel Trescott complains that Cornwall and the Cornish are shamefully under-represented on the BBC.'

It did seem strange to us that, at the same time as the BBC had failed to allow MK fair access to the media, it should sanction a satirical programme which featured the issue as a vehicle for humour.

It is our hope that the BBC Trust will confirm that it will allow MK the right to broadcast a PEB, rather than living up to the content of one of its own spoofs.

Their contribution is signed Dick.  At least I think it's a signature.
