I Used To Defend The Licence Fee

A lot of applause is surely merited by the website, for organising Saturday's six minute protest on the Kop. The BBC commentator John Motson did refer briefly to the background to the protest. However, it was clear that BBC bosses had told the match director to minimise any camera shots of the kop during the six minute period at the start of the game. However, it seems as though the BBC is quite happy to cause further offence. They've re-invited Kelvin MacKenzie on to tonight's "Question Time" programme ( ). MacKenzie, of course, chickened out of a scheduled appearance on the programme's panel last month shortly after saying he wasn't contrite for his vile slurs. It is to be hoped that someone in the audience raises this, even though the BBC will edit it out of the programme before transmission.

There's a lot I could write about the football itself since the weekend, but I won't. I'll leave that to posting comments on other blogs.
