Death By A Thousand Cuts Part II
« on: December 21, 2015, 02:01:08 PM »
The Grauniad reports the BBC has hired a firm chaired by Gus O'Donnell to 'get over' the issue of having taken on responsibility of the free-for-over-75's licence fee.

'We want to explore the options, in particular on how voluntary payments might work,' said a BBC source. 'Its early days, this work is only just beginning.'

Well, it would of course be churlish to suggest you tell people they have to pay and then either they do, or they don't.  But quite honestly, that's how it would work.  I imagine this isn't cheap?
