Sent shortly after the World Cup bidding debacle:
The FA, the 2018 bid committee, the Royal Family and the Government invested heavily in trying to win the 2018 World Cup for the UK.
The BBC deigned to show a panorama programme about corruption within Fifia just a day before the decision day for hosting the World Cup.
Earlier this year the Sunday Times had investigated Fifa and Fifa had made clear it did not welcome the investigation and that it had effected the England Bid.
Despite this knowledge the BBC arrogantly cited its own right to free speech to broadcast the Panorama programme this week. Today Sepp Blatter made it clear in the voting process that certain media events had effected the English bid. England then got 2 votes and went out in the first round.
The BBC could have broadcast the same programme tonight or next week, the reason it did not is clearly because it was chasing ratings. This chase may well have cost England the chance of hosting the 2018 World Cup.
As such, the BBC should immediately refund the costs of the bid, the Government and all parties who have made such efforts that the BBC saw fit to sabotage in such an obvious manner.
Given the BBC is funded by Licence, the cost should not be borne by extra funding, but by finding the money from current budgets.
Do you think I will get a response that is not utterly self-serving? I look forward to their pathetic self-justifications.
