“People should stop paying the BBC licence fee in protest at the poor coverage Welsh affairs on network news programmes, a Plaid Cymru MP argues today. Adam Price says he is prepared not to buy a licence unless there are big improvements 'in the next year or so'.
Mr Price airs his views in his column in this week’s issue of Welsh-language magazine Golwg in which he wrote that on 'May 4, I was interviewed by BBC morning news show The Today Programme. Before the summer I said that nationalists would be in power in every Celtic country within the United Kingdom.Ten weeks later, the prediction came true. But it was unlikely viewers and listeners of the BBC would be aware of the full extent of the national drama: the lack of interest shown during the Assembly elections led to the editorial decisions that followed.'"
