The BBC has found itself at the centre of a new row, just weeks after the highly damaging scandals of "Queen tantrum gate", "Name of kitten-gate" and "getting people to phone in and charging them even though they stand no chance of winning-gate".
It has been revealed by this website that the BBC is operating under a false identity and defrauding the entire nation of the revenue of the licence fee - valued at around 4 billion pounds annually.
It appears that the BBC is not actually the lovable, slightly scruffy public service broadcaster full of noble ideals and a tradition of honesty and integrity at all. In fact an extremely aggressive commercial operator interested in nothing but profit has taken over the identity of the BBC and is using the brand to unscrupulously generate vast amounts of cash whilst still receiving public money from the poor, unsuspecting licence fee payers. The monopolistic position of the brand means that the so called "BBC" has effectively a licence to generate cash.
Richard Branson, all round good bloke and very rich man indeed, said: "This type of fraud is very common. The victims, in this case 40 million licence fee payers, are just too embarrassed that they have been stung and continue to pay up without complaining to the authorities."
Following these revelations, the BBC is understood to have left the country and to be at one of its mansions in Bermuda
