Protect The BBC Pledge

I am very concerned about the amount of criticism the BBC is currently being subject to, particularly from commercial rivals, who would increase there profit if they get there way and its operations shrink. Since the announcement of proposed cuts to BBC services, over 40,000 people have signed the petition or written to the BBC Trust, calling for the services to be saved.

The text of the pledge reads:
If elected as a member of parliament, I pledge to:
* Oppose the proposed closure of BBC 6Music, BBC Asian Network, the cuts to the BBC website, including the proposed redundancies and the disposal of the BBC’s magazine titles.
* Work to ensure that the future of public sector broadcasting, is properly resourced, maintaining and strengthening investment in quality programmes.

Strategic Review discussed in the Guardian.

Money could still be saved though, some of those stars do seem to be overpaid.
