My friend has complained about Laura Kuenssberg, and her bias and rudeness.  I've been avoiding serious stuff on the tv lately, I let my OH grumble about it instead. 🙄

Yes, she is another awful and aggressive one.
Everything I can't find is in a totally secure place.

I've not watched a TV news, regardless of channel, for months now. A quick look at the BBC news website and the Telegraph ditto fill my quota of depression in a couple of minutes!

Hiya. I'm a newbie. Tried to leave BBC, fed up with the left wing bias. We stay with ITV until Robert Peston comes on then it's back to Chuckling Hew Edwards

Ah music to my ears  :)
Welcome to PF from me too. There are not huge numbers of regular poster so you'll soon get an idea where everybody stands on things like BBC bias.

Target. Believe 6 impossible things before breakfast.

How about cutting benefits instead.


??? The State Pension comes out of the Welfare Budget just the same as jobseekers and universal credit.


If the Welfare pot is depleted you will still get it except that there will be no increases - seems fair to me.

Doesn't look good for the free TV licence does it?


How do you manage to come to that opinion?


You can only get a free TV licence from August if you are receiving Pension Credit.
Those that are will not be any worse off or better off. For every 1 of pension increase the pension credit is reduced by 1. So effectively those on pension credit wouldn't care if there were no more increases for the state pension.
