Johnson rumoured to be ready to punish the BBC after the election

The conservative government boycotted the BBC program and will look at whether to decriminalise licence-cheaters.

After the great election victory for The Conservatives in the Uk, there are signs that the prime minister, Boris Johnson, is getting ready to punish the state television channel BBC.

This writes the newspaper The Guardian on Sunday and refer to sources in 10 Downing Street - prime minister's office.

It can according to the BBC cost 200 million pounds (nearly 1.8 billion) in lost revenue.

at the same time the prime minister and his people decided to boycott BBC's debatprogram Today on Radio 4, because it is considered hostile to the conservatives.

Several ministers got the message about not meeting up on Saturday in Todays program. The same will be the case in the future, says a source to the newspaper.

the Guardian writes that it may be the government's way to get rid without to be scrutinized from the independent side.

the BBC's director general, Tony Hall, was rejected on Friday determined that the BBC should reaffirm certain views during the many hundreds of hours of valgdækning.

- I do not accept the point of view from the critics, who throws himself over a handful of examples to suggest that we would somehow be biased, he wrote in an e-mail.

Johnson's office refers, among others, for one of the BBC's hosts, Andrew Neil, gave Johnson dry on, when he refused to be interview during the election campaign. They also cite a report from a hospital, where a hospitalized boy with suspected pneumonia were placed on the floor in a corridor on a overbelagt hospital.

It was seen as a antikonservativt message.

But The Conservative is not alone in complaining about the BBC. It also has Labour done. For example, the BBC cut out the audience's laughter out during a laughable performances against Johnson, and that the BBC uncritically echoed conservative sources during the election campaign.
