Let's Fix Britain in the Media
Our best chance of becoming a major force is to
grow our membership, and our best opportunity for growth is with
publicity via the media.
With that in mind, we're working on gaining exposure
in the press, radio, TV and anywhere else.
If you can provide us with a media opportunity,
please contact us.
If you are a program-maker or a budding program
maker, then please contact us. We have powerful ideas we want to
in using the media to energise the public.

Weekdays 11 'til 2
BBC Radio Northamptonshire
BBC Radio Northamptonshire
heard about us and invited Chris to speak with Richard Oliff
on their daily show about the state of the nation.
Good fun, and we collected a few new members
as a result.
Note the similar introductions!!
BBC Three Counties Radio,
BBC Three Counties Radio - who hosted us for the Radio
Stoke slot, asked to do an item on Let's Fix Britain, which
Chris did via phone with breakfast show host Roberto Peronne.
Are You Fed Up With Britain?
BBC Radio Stoke
BBC Radio Stoke found our website and invited
Chris to participate in a one hour special, where he fielded
question from the general public for about an hour.
This was Chris's first live slot, and was
made all the more stressful because he did it remotely from
in Luton, where the reception quality was poor, and there
was an echo on the line.
Great fun for all that - and we got more
exposure and some new members as a result, as well as valuable
Chris appeared in the audience of BBC1's
Question Time, where he asked the panel what the overall
of taxation is in the UK, when you consider all taxes - VAT,
poll tax, duties on fuels and drugs, etc.
Dimbleby seemed irritated by the question,
but put it to the illustrious panel anyway.
No-one had any idea, which seems dissappointing
considering the fundamental nature of the question.
Subsequently, LFB members did some work on
answering this question, and here is the result:
If you take the total UK takings from all
taxes, and divide it by the number of employed citizens, then
they're each paying £13K a year into the country, which
is 69% of the average wage. Whilst simplistic,
this number is justifiably alarming, and shows that the average
hard working citizen is paying very heavily for their place
in our country.
Channel 4, December, 2002
Our articles on call centres attracted
the interest of program-maker Maxine Gordon, who, working
for Diverse Television, contacted us to provide content for
her short program in the channel 4 series "Great Britain".
Chris gave three hours of his time versus
the requested 20 minutes to Maxine and appeared in her program
talking about call centres, in exchange for a mention of Let's
Fix Britain in the credits and a tape of the program.
We didn't get any mention in the credits,
nor any tape, and Maxine never answered our emails.
