Tuesday 28 June, while the French public service is on strike against plans to abolish audiovisual license fees, the BBC, a British public service, will experience the same fate in 2027.

For over a hundred years, the BBC has enabled Britons to follow news on television, radio and the Internet. The public audiovisual giant is weak though. The government will eliminate fees of 184 euros per year from 2027, which worries employees. A union representative recalls that the contribution finances 75% of the BBC’s budget, which does not depend on advertising.

No replacement plan is planned, while the fee is frozen for two years and hence will not be able to increase at the rate of inflation. ,This will put more money in the pockets of retirees, families who are struggling to survive“Assures the government. For Claire Anders, the media expert, these reprisals are also political. Boris Johnson may have considered the BBC very important, especially during the Brexit campaign.”This naturally places existential pressure on the public service as a whole.“, she explains. The positions will be eliminated to save money.
