Mr Procrastinator: Do You Agree?
Posted by southstander on November 19 2007 - 08:56:48

By Mr Procrastinator

To while away the long dark winter nights and short cold days until the dawn of the new season, we've commissioned (in the loosest sense of the word) a series of weekly 'non-rugby' articles from Mr Procrastinator.

Each controversial article will be accompanied by a poll and a discussion thread on the message board and will last for a week. Discussions are likely to get heated and emotional, but will hopefully be interesting. It's always good to hear the other persons viewpoint before making up your mind!

The first weeks discussion is about the BBC 'causing' Poverty...

The BBC causes poverty in the UK with its Children in Need Appeal

The BBC is wasting millions of pounds of taxpayers money each and every year in an attempt to allieviate the nations guilt in the runup to christmas, but worse still in raising its pittance, its drop in the ocean of social provisions, it is guilty of actually increasing poverty in the UK.

HM Government has always been happy to stand back and watch while charities beg for extra cash from the British public, it has always been happy to let hospices be funded entirely by donation rather than be paid for on the NHS budget, is deleriously happy that air ambulances are provided by and run by charitable trusts, will stand back and applaud when we the public put our hands in our pockets every November to help old soldiers pay their council tax and electricity bills with the Poppy appeal - if HM Government can avoid expenditure on a social issue then it will, and always has done.

The BBC profess to us every year that there are children in this country living in poverty and insist that we dig deep and send our money to them in order to fund a range of projects every year so that poverty stricken British children can all have equal and free access to skateboard parks and playgrounds whilst a few sick ones get to go to Disneyland.

In providing what should be within the remit of the much harrangued Social Services department of each local authority the BBC are guilty of letting those public bodies stand back and watch whilst guarding their taxpayers budget to ringfence their public servant pension funds.

The paradox is of course that the few millions that the BBC raise is only a drop in the ocean of what is needed, but by taking on a job that they cannot hope to adequately fund they deny many thousands of so-called poverty striken children from receiving proper Government funding from a variety of non-existant projects that are never created by the Social Services departments that were set up to do this very work.

While Social Service civil servants sit on their hands and laugh another group of publically funded servants at the BBC try and do their job and fail miserably, for if they would have had even the smallest glimmer of success over the years then there would now be no child poverty, they are damned by their own failures.
