NOTE: This clip is apparently four years old. The “licence fee” (tax) is now £154 per year, and of course the circumstances have changed (watch the news). One of the recent changes is that you have to have a licence, and have to sign in, to use the BBC iPlayer.
“Free TV Licences for the over 75’s” will no longer be available from 1st June 2020. There is a HUGE backlash over this. The biggest shock, now revealed, is the cultural scamming of the British public for decades, while “the BEEB” has been the biggest propaganda machine in the U.K., lying to, deceiving, misleading, and profiting from the public, and all under false pretences! TIME TO DITCH THE BEEB!
My mother is a 90 year old, housebound invalid. If they continue to follow through with their new policy after 31st May 2020 she will disconnect and detune her TV and simply watch the hundreds of DVDs she has collected over her lifetime, listen to the hundreds of CDs she has, or read the hundreds of books she has never had time to read.
At this point in time she feels that across all the channels there is no content that catches her interest or is worth watching. She gave up watching morning/daytime TV long ago, and doesn’t watch the soaps at all any more due to the fact that the storylines have become so unreal, depressing and negative. She feels that the “entertainment” programs are imbecilic, and doesn’t believe in the so-called “reality” shows which are even worse.
The TV is only switched on very occasionally when there is a particular show she personally likes, such as “Holby City”. She spends most of her time on her iPad otherwise now.
The result of all this is that she is still very much completely present and alert mentally, even though being physically limited.
So, no, she will NOT pay for, NOR “miss” the BBC (she DOESN’T miss it NOW)!
“The argument(s)” for/against will be like all others and “go on forever”! However, MOST of the consensus of opinion is not only that the over 75’s were lied to, and now cheated, but that the “licence” “fee” should be scrapped altogether!
And THIS is WHY…
THIS is HOW to NOT comply!…
PUT THEM OUT OF BUSINESS BY DENYING THEIR FUNDING!!!
WHY PAY THEM FOR THEIR 💩 AND THEIR ILLEGAL COVERING UP OF/FOR THE CRIMINAL ELITES, MANY OF WHOM ARE FROM THEIR OWN NUMBER (AND SOME HAVE BEEN IMPRISONED)!!! THEY ARE NOT “A PUBLIC SERVICE”!!! THE PUBLIC SERVE THEM!!! STOP!!!
