Idea 7: mutualise the BBC

Have to admit I've stolen this idea from Tessa Jowell but if in addition to my party membership in also a member of Labour's sister party Co-operative Party and if I'm elected to the National Policy Forum I'll push the co-operative cause non-stop. 

So the idea is to make the BBC more democratically accountable and give every license fee paying household a say in the running of the organisation whilst also giving it a level of legal protection from the kind of onslaught being brought upon it by the Tories currently. 

We all know the Tories want to ruin the BBC, making it an institution owned by all of us would make their attacks harder to carry out and would rule out their ultimate aim of abolishing the organisation.
