Ok. There quite a few misconceptions in this thread. Overseas radio is paid for by the Foreign office, not the licence fee. 'BBC Adverts' by which I assume you mean promos for future programmes etc. Are you telling me ITV, Sky, C4, History Channel, Dave etc don't do them? The Pensioners losing their...
If I choose never to watch BBC content, I still have to have a t.v licence, why should that be if the proceeds only go into their pockets? That is a valid point, but without the R&D done by the BBC over the years there wouldn't be Sky for sure, and the likes of Netflix and Amazon TV would still be ...
I worked it telly for 32 years. The BBC now is a far leaner and more efficient, and commercially more aware organisation than when I started. We can't have a sensible debate about the licence fee while people say there are 'hangars on' etc when there aren't. At the end of my telly time I worked in B...

Nothing changes during the transition period so for this year it's fine. A lot of the EU countries are saying travel and healthcare (EHIC) will remain unchanged for the future as long as the UK reciprocates.

Interesting, but how hard would it be for enemy air defences to work out the difference between a drone and an aircraft? Well the Iranian air defences couldn't distinguish between a US combat aircraft and a civilian Boeing 737...so no, not easy at all. It all depends on the standard of the radar eq...
Last year missus P accidentally ordered a cockerel for Christmas dinner. It was fantastic, I recommend it. We've tried goose and duck as alternatives, but this was excellent, like chicken but turkey sized.
