This will just get filed in /dev/null.

If anyone is serious about registering their unhappiness the way to
do it is to cancel any Sky subscription telling Sky why they have
and convince others to do the same.

Revenue loss is the only language they understand.

Is that not a bit Cart before the Horse Nev especially as i do not have Sky! Afterall Sky has not lost F1 they have gained F1 via a backhanded deal behind closed doors with the BBC Nit-Wits, therefore our issue is with the BBC since they managed to drop the ball.

Petitions dont make alot of difference when cold hard cash is involved, only a withdrawal of that cash will do.

Most folk will sign that petition thinking 'I have done my bit, that petition will help' and then go off and buy Sky. Sad really but thats what happens.

I see this morning the BBC have managed to keep the rights for Wimbledon for another 3 years. Maybe they should have saved money by just showing alternate rounds

Some people will have a basic package without sports.

If they are F1 fans, they should think about cancelling.

I wouldn't be without Sky HD but I think the BBC HD coverage & current team are excellent.

I thought the Beeb will still show certain races live though

Letter to your MP? Government should have F1 as a protected sport, like England home footie games?

They will Si, 50% of the races, the 50% of the races that you wouldn't really care for with Herman's Tracks, Boreain et al. Infact i wouldn't be surprised if the British GP is Pay-Per-View next year.

I agree Bazza, Britain is the home of F1, it is where the majority of the teams are based.

Done.
The idea that the Beeb has money for the tennis and not for F1 boils my urine a bit.

British gp will be on the beeb, canceling sky wont do much, it would on be blamed on the current economics, not buying sky sports however would, sponsors need huge audiences
