In January, the BBC announced that it would stop using English to broadcast its programs.
However, in the UK, it is not just the BBC that has made this decision.
In March 2018, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) announced it would be abandoning its use of English for its programming.
The news agency was asked to remove English from its English language editions of its news bulletins, as well as its news and current affairs programs.
As a result, the news agency’s English language programs will be produced using the Hindi, Malayalam, Gujarati, Marathi and Tamil scripts.
However the news organization has not announced a timetable for its removal of English.
In a statement, the UK Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG), the country’s governing body for the BBC, said the decision to discontinue the use of BBC English was a “fairly difficult and difficult decision”.
However, the decision has not yet been ratified by the BBG, and there is no indication the decision will be implemented immediately.
The BBC has announced that, from January 1, 2019, it will no longer use the BBC English language versions of its programs, in addition to the BBC’s news bulletin programs, current affairs programming and international affairs programs in the English language.
In response, many British citizens have voiced their opposition to the decision, with the UK’s Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson calling the decision “disappointing” and “dangerous”.
Johnson also commented on the decision in a Facebook post on Thursday, saying that, as the BBC is a UK institution, the broadcaster “should be entitled to be treated like any other media organization, with due respect for its independence and the freedom of expression guaranteed by the UK constitution.”
However, Johnson also stated that the decision was not based on the merits of the BBC.
“The BBC must be treated as an institution that is independent of the Government and subject to its own laws, regulations and processes.
If this is the case, then the Government has a right to ask that the BBC cease using its English in these matters,” he wrote.
The decision was met with outrage and outrage on social media, with some calling for the removal of the news network.
Many of the comments were critical of the decision and the decision’s implications.
Some have suggested the decision is unfair because the news organizations “are already under the Government’s purview” and that the British Government “will use its power to interfere with BBC news broadcasts.”
Others, however, have questioned the decision for having a direct impact on the BBC and its news programming.
“As the UK has no formal relationship with the BBC as an entity, the Government is not bound by the terms of the agreement and could override the decision,” wrote one user on Twitter.
“BBC news will be the first casualty in the war against BBC and the British state.
It is wrong that BBC should be treated differently from the rest of the media,” wrote another.
However others have defended the decision.
“This is a step forward to end the BBC-government duopoly,” tweeted one user.
“If it is possible for the British government to take the BBC down, why not also stop the UK government from taking over our BBC?,” said another.
According to a BBC spokesperson, the reason for the decision could be “a lack of confidence in the decision-making process” and the “broadening of access to information in the digital age.”
The spokesperson also added that the announcement “was not based solely on the impact of this decision on the news services,” adding that the news agencies’ programming will continue to be produced in the same languages.
“We welcome the BBC decision to withdraw from the use in the British Isles of BBC’s English,” the spokesperson said.
The spokesperson went on to say that “it is important that the UK is a world-leading broadcaster that provides a service that is of great value to its citizens, and we are determined to keep our international reputation for excellence.”
The decision to drop the use and distribution of BBC News and Current Affairs in the United Kingdom came on the heels of the Brexit vote, in which the British citizens voted to leave the European Union.
According for many, the Brexit decision has had a “devastating” impact on their lives and livelihoods.
The number of people working in the news industry has been reduced by 20% in the past three years.
The UK has become the “world’s number one destination for outsourcing news,” according to a recent report from the United States Government Accountability Office (GAO).
The report found that the loss of UK jobs in the industry is expected to total approximately $2.4 billion, with an average loss of roughly $700,000 per news agency.
However many are worried about the impact on jobs and wages.
The Guardian reported that, “The loss of thousands of jobs is expected by the end of 2019, with a number of those affected including BBC
