The end of 6Music may be nigh

Since I mentioned the proposed closure of 6Music, there’s been a lot of campaigning, plenty of people filled in the survey thingy, and much publicity was spread. Under a Labour or Labour/Lib Dem administration, we might have had a good chance that the Evil Plot would have been overruled.

But our new reptilian overlords[1] have made it quite clear that they’d like to reduce the size of the BBC, because public service broadcasting is evil, or at least inconvenient for Rupert Murdoch. I’d say the chances for 6Music getting a reprieve are now very slight indeed, and no amount of campaigning will make the slightest difference…

[1] I don’t have to explain that reference, do I? That nice Dr Ben had to on Twitter last night, which was a bit sad.
