    Just stop watching live TV, you don't have to have a licence then.

    Old people get plenty.

    The ones who can afford it will have to pay.

    The ones who can't will still get it free.

    Agree with you on choice though. Ridiculous that everyone pays the same regardless of how much you use it.

    Very true Colonel but they still send the heavy's around to ransack your front room twice a year.

    Age UK are reporting that this will hurt more than you think Lecter.

    You're not under any obligation to allow these people into your house whatsoever. I believe you can file some sort of declaration that you won't be watching live TV in order to 'opt out'.

    I'm torn on it to be honest, on the one hand they make some great television/documentaries and having a non-commerical broadcaster is great but on the other hand the BBC have a tendency to massage the truth and we definitely get drip-fed certain information by the BBC news as a form of control.

    All this shit old folks get like the triple lock, free tv licences and being able to retire at 65, winter fuel allowances, bus passes and what ever else will all be gone by the time it's our turn at the age of 175 to be entitled to something. Meanwhile MP's will have been getting their pensions paid nice and early. On a cushy wedge.

    To be fair, it's the old folks that get the best value from the license fee. If anything they should pay *more* than us working folk that can only watch it in the evenings.

    The BBC keep the commercial channels in check. If the BBC had to go commerical then it'd be a race to the bottom from all the channels and we'd all end up paying much more for quality television.

    Don't take my old blokes bus pass off me, I loves it. I'm like Crockett and Tubbs in Miami vice flashing it in the drivers face, "take me to the pub yer mug" "take me to the football" "take me down the brothel", fucking great being an old cunt.

    Read it somewhere thst you can send the company that sends the heavies a letter stating that you are revoking any access to them onto your property. If they set foot onto your property then they can be done for trepressing.
