If the BBC needs to save money it could slash its budget for high brow drama and documentaries pitched at a level the typical man cannot understand that is only watched by the middle classes who can afford sky and are well catered for elsewhere. It could also move its sports coverage away from middle-class sports such as Wimbledon and Equestrian and towards sports more popular with the working class that would cost a fraction in terms of rights etc.
"high brow drama and documentaries the typical man cannot understand"?
Ridiculous stereotyping if ever I heard it.
I can't understand or read Urdu/Punjabi, does that mean I should go and burn every Punjabi look at the library just because I "cannot understand" them?
The more accurate anology would be complaining about a library with a large number of Punjabi and Urdu books, but an English language section that has nothing other than picture books aimed at toddlers, the odd gossip magazine mostly dating from 2008, and 400 copies of each of Shakespeare's plays.
