Thanks Robert! Mine says:
The ABC is part of civilised society, and a crucial civilising influence.
I pay considerable taxes, and am happy to do so, provided that key
cultural institutions are protected.
I have no problems at all with pressure being put on ABC journalists
to achieve balance, or at least a reasonable degree of scepticism
about both sides of politics.
But I utterly oppose the thrusting of commercial imperatives on the
organisation, and the denial of funding, designed to force the
organisation to resort to advertising.
