Fair broadcaster

Have your say

I am astonished at the recent criticism of the BBC by your Nationalist correspondents (Letters, 29 and 30 July).

We in the UK have the ­finest and fairest public broadcasting system in the world, the envy of many, the only organisation that was trusted by both sides to tell the truth during the long Iraq-Iran war.

It is now pilloried, ­apparently for not treating the wildest of assertions and fantasies of the SNP as “opportunities” or fact. 

I shudder to think of a broken-off Scotland where a supposedly free and fair ­public broadcasting system will be subject to approval by the letter writers or other ­apparatchiks of the SNP.

Big Brother approval will presumably be necessary and no-one would dare broadcast anything that might upset their party’s leadership.
