They tried this tv license crap over here. People just laughed so the scheme was scrapped.
I didn't pay my tv license for the last two years or so I had my London flat as I spent the vast majority of my time in Spain. I received countless of letters from them with all sorts of threats about fines and search warrants, even tho I had called them several times to tell them I didn't live there anymore and didn't require a license.
The tv license guy showed up at my door asking to enter the premises, I said no and that was that. Never heard of them again.

I just got my new TV license through the post, I pay monthly for mine, I did give the door step bloke some gip. The idiots on that vid ain't got a clue, don't they know they have just broke the criminal law by answering the questions with a lie? Keeping your gob shut means not saying a word, being a smart arse will get you verbaled up every time.
I told the fuckers straight, a state owned TV station can not tell me what electric goods I can and can't own, there is no way a person should have to give the beeb a backhander before they can watch a re-run of Ben Hur on channel 4, the poor bloke had a paddy on my door step, stomped off back to his car, muttering insults as he went.

Actually the BBC wants naive people to believe that but the truth is the BBC are aware of everything done and thus have final say. They just want to distance themselves to protect the fake Auntie image

Who we are

'TV Licensing' is a trade mark of the BBC and is used under licence by companies contracted by the BBC to administer the collection of the television licence fees and enforcement of the television licensing system.
The BBC is a public authority in respect of its television licensing functions and retains overall responsibility.

If the BBC is as great as they would have you believe it would thrive under a voluntary subscription....................I think we know why they don't want that though

Actually they make lots of money already here in the UK (breaking the Royal Charter) with its commercial channels on UKTV, like Dave.

When you add the force BBC TV Licence (£3.7 BILLION) and its commercial revenue it comes to £5 BILLION a year!

In other words the vast majority would get what they want instead of the vast majority being forced to pay for the minority like the BBC currently does!

Oh and its "advertising"

That isn't true as the video shows, its only those who wish to watch "live" television so I have to ask why you keep pushing Pro-BBC PR here, lies in other words ?

Lying again and I note a BBC technique of putting your opinion across as fact. The truth is over the past 20yrs every public opinion poll has shown 75% want the BBC TV Licence abolished.

Your wording tells me you might be from one of the BBC PR firms

Wrong, the BBC TV Licence was created to fund the BBC and that was the only reason. The Socialist behind it knew what he was doing which is why we are still lumbered with it in the 21st century.

I demand YOU are forced to contribute towards those that prefer Cable or Satellite and then we will see how fair you think it is!

Oh and for the benefit of all the BBC people out there, I've NEVER paid the BBC a single penny, you threaten me, harass me and try intimidating me and its changed nothing.

The BBC TV Licence should be stuck in the history books with the Nazis.

Anyone that wants help with dealing with the BBC thugs should visit this place

The BBC are renown bullies to thousands of British people.

They are a vile organisation hiding behind their strong arm called TV Licensing in a poor attempt to distance themselve from the constant harassment of people who legally do not have a tv licence.

If it isn't obnoxious letters they post to you it's doorsteps salesment leaning on you, then come the snatch squads like this Doyle character if you cause them any problems such as uploading video footage of their doorstep goons to YouTube.

All in all they are a disgrace that still claim to be the world's best broadcaster despite all this evidence of bullying.
