the man from uncle

a letter i just wrote to my MP about a vote this evening to cut BBC funding:

Dear Sadiq

I know that the current government are massive pricks, content on slowly destroying the way of life for average British people all over the country, but if there is any way you can help with the BBC that'd be ace.

The beeb is one of the few things remaining that make me proud to be British, and has been key in creating our finest exports: Monty Python, Dr. Who and Stephen Fry... without which we might as well give up as we're only left with Cheryl Cole, teen pregnancy and football hooliganism.

Please do all you can, if you can. Admittedly it seems that all hope is a waste of time and the results of the last general election warrant that, but we live in a country that celebrates mediocrity and one of the last bastions of aspiration and achievement lay within the walls of BBC Television centre. Don't let it fade away like an old, forgotten pensioner.
