Speaking about the BBC after Gary Lineker suggested that the license fee should be voluntary, Kelvin MacKenzie has joked about the turmoil the corporation finds themselves in: "The BBC are the Royal Family in suits aren't they? They're in complete disarray. It does cheer me up."

Currently, failure to pay the license fee is a criminal offence however it could be decriminalised and instead become a civil offence in the future claimed Baroness Morgan recently.

Speaking about the potential policy move, Mackenzie of A Spokesman Said has called for a campaign to cease the payment even sooner.

"We're starting a campaign - 'can't pay? Cart me away!'

"See how long the BBC survives when they start jailing old dears. It's over for the license fee!"

In a bid to see the BBC change its fortunes, Evan Davis, a presenter for various BBC shows, has encouraged bosses to put radio online and suggested some of the traditional channels could also be moved online too.

Responding to Davis' comments, Mackenzie believes that the BBC should be investing based purely on their viewers: "What they're trying to do is attract the youngsters which they'll never, never do. They're wasting their time. 

"What they should do is the 80/20 rule- which is basically invest in the viewers who are watching it."

Adam Sherwin, media correspondent at the i Paper, spoke to the Kelvin Mackenzie show on Love Sport Radio today about who the BBC should appoint as Director General with Rupert Murdoch's daughter - Elisabeth Murdoch - linked to the role.

"For the Government, that's exactly the sort of person the BBC should be looking at. They can't just have another business as usual bureaucrat being appointed to the top job now the BBC is under threat."

"It could be anybody that is thinking about the future of the BBC in a much more commercial way when it is competing with Netflix and Amazon Prime and all these other threats coming down the track."
