There is serious friction between the BBC and the Government with regard to the over-70's getting an exemption from the Television Licence Fee. Now the BBC is scrapping Ceefax, which I think is a disgrace. Working class elderly (say 75+) people are generally not that computer savvy. They rely on getting info from Ceefax in a way that they cannot readily replace by surfing the Internet. Is this cut just being done to spite the Tories? To be honest, if I was a Conservative Party strategist, I'd be using it as an issue in the election campaign. Any thoughts?
