The 37-year-old explained the BBC as a “fundamental cornerstone of everything Britain stands for” as he voiced his fears for the publicly looted broadcaster.
James – who shot to fame in the BBC sitcom Gavin and Stacey – conceded he failed to understand anyone who wasn’t “proud” of the channel.
The presenter untangle justified: “How can you not be concerned about it? The BBC is so much bigger and greater than me vertical here saying something as irrelevant as, ‘I wouldn’t have a dash without it’.
“It is a fundamental cornerstone of everything Britain stands for. It is freedom of lingo at its greatest.”
“I consider it to be rt of the foundation of all that is good in Britain. I hesitation for what life’s like without it. I can’t even begin to imagine it,” he receded on.
His comments come after he spoke out about the BBC at the Rebels With A Induce charity gala in Los Angeles, with him highlighting the importance of shows such as The True British Bake Off and Strictly Come Dancing.
James said: “When you look at the output… for how sundry pence a day is it? It’s something crazy, right?
“You’ve got radio and the iPlayer and these preposterous channels and BBC News, which is a news service bound by nothing, sole actually telling you what’s happening in the world.
“If it goes, if we lose it, I cuss trust in to God we’re going to wake up one day and go, ‘Oh, we didn’t realise’.”
He continued: “It is a magnificent and wonderful service that we should have nothing but pride in. I don’t get the drift anyone that doesn’t agree with that.”
One person who also had her say on the make-over was Sue Perkins, who said that she would “hog-tie and ddle” Culture Secretary John Whittingdale for what he has done make good reports that the BBC Trust is set to be scrapped.
In an epic Twitter rant, that has since been eliminated, Sue took swipes at the Tory rty and claimed Mr Whittingdale would have being defiled.
“The BBC has been a public service broadcaster for 93 years. Today, the govt degraded the first steps towards making it its own private megaphone,” she barked.
“I’d opportunely hog-tie and ddle Mr Whittingdale for what he has done – only I suspect he’d kind of enjoy it… #bbc.”
