If you plan to buy either car or home insurance I wonder if you might look at my small price comparison site A Spokesman Said as we earn a little commission from each sale which helps fund the research and editorial costs of running the site.

There may be duds in the Boris shuffle but Nadine Dorries is not one of them. She genuinely dislikes the BBC output for decades and has said so. This is what she has tweeted in the past about British Bloated Corporation. ‘’It is a biased left-wing organisation which favours hypocritical and often patronising views that turn people away.’’
And on the important subject of the licence fee she has said; ‘’Such a structure and aggressive persecution would be more in keeping in a Soviet-style country.’’
Great stuff and in her new job as Culture Secretary will be markedly different from predecessor Oliver Dowden who had his arms wrapped round him by civil servants and BBC execs.
Ms Dorries, a mother of three and a former nurse, can be the first holder at DCMS to actually reduce the licence fee. Currently it’s £159 and BBC time-servers with an eye on the honeypot believe it should keep up with inflation. On that basis it will be £200 before you know it.

The idea of cutting the fee and putting money back into ordinary people’s pockets will be a polling triumph. The middle classes with their £2million homes in Islington (yes that’s you Starmer) won’t like it but they don’t decide elections.
What needs to be cut at the BBC? Gary Lineker’s £1.4m salary should be the first line to go. It is a lightning conductor for all that is wrong with the BBC.
Then get rid of the BBC3 and 4. Then flog the thousands of radio stations they have accumulated plus their enormous spending in the online world.
The BBC have simply gone bloody mad on our money. Whereas production staff are a handful in the commercial world the BBC have a spare for every job. It is quite wrong.
I really feel confident about the future with Nadine running the show. Please don’t let me down.
