That would mean that most media, presenters, actors, musicians etc would not pay towards the BBC as they are freelancers, no PAYE. The rich, not salaried, would also avoid paying.
Hitting PAYE is an easy one but the wealthy tend not to be affected, which doesn't seem quite right. It isn't a simple one to resolve.
Fair point - I guess the point I was trying to make was it should be funded centrally from general taxation revenue.
