To David Cameron

Petition text

Please protect the BBC, our public broadcaster, and ensure that:

  • The BBC remains independently funded and free from political interference
  • Its resources are not cut so it can continue to provide high-quality and varied content

Why is this important?

The BBC’s TV and radio programmes, news service and website are read, watched, listened to and loved by millions of British people every day. It’s envied across the world.

Programmes like The Voice, Great British Bake Off and Dr Who entertain millions while services like BBC News bring important investigative journalism.

We all benefit from having a public broadcasting institution, run independently from government, for everyone in our country.

Please sign this petition calling on David Cameron to protect the BBC.
