On the other hand, if we're handing round stereotypes, the poor, sick and elderly spend more time watching the telly, so it's only fair they pay their whack of the licence fee.

It seems the White Paper means we've largely got away with it. I'm not overly troubled by the appointment thing, as governments appoint all sorts of people to all sorts of positions, and we tend not to worry too much. And the Beeb will be more scrutinised than most.
It was the number of Govt appointments that was also of particular concern...I think it was 6/7 out of the 13!
