As i understand it you are both wrong. C4 does not receive license fee money but does receive government grants, although its primarily funded through ads/sponsorship etc, and does have a public service remit. So hes right in terms of his general argument if not technically.
Anyway pls stop arguing and get back to the interesting subject. Id imagine most of the people on the show could write off the donations against tax, but obviously this doesnt work for a poker player in the UK, so its either an act of extreme generosity or of someone desperate for exposure. Discuss.
