Readers voted in our poll on whether they would shell out the eye-watering sum if the BBC was turned into a subscription service. A huge 98 percent of respondents said no, with just two percent backing the idea.

Commenting on the poll, one reader blasted: “With all the left-wing woke dribble and mountains of repeats, the BBC should be paying us.”

Another fumed: “Just get rid of it, it’s biased and not value for money.

“We get enough channels showing repeats and rubbish without it and it’s absurdly paid so-called stars and presenters.”

A third commented: “Hilarious. I wouldn’t watch the BBC if they paid ME £400 per year!”

A fourth added: “I wouldn’t give £4 let alone £400.”

Another hit out: “If I’m paying for propaganda to be rammed down my throat, no thanks. I can get that for free elsewhere.”

A sixth raged over the licence fee, saying: “How stupid are the BBC?

“If we had the CHOICE, most of us wouldn’t even pay the £157 tax. Netflix etc, are not compulsory, unlike the BBC.”
