I guess I'm just old-fashioned but I really prefer my programming without advertising like it used to be before the politicos tampered with Auntie [the Beeb]. Not all change is progress
Just as the spirit is invisible, so also is its language a secret, & sometimes you can't tell when it's being sarcastic.

TV licenses. Fucking retarded.

Yeah. I took mad offense at being forced to pay one as I had no TV, but the license man who came round said, 'ah, well, see, your PC has a TV in card, and that is technically capable of receiving BBC one if you plug it into that socket there see?'

'The fucking socket blocked behind my solid oak 10 foot bookshelf in a frankly unusable position yes?' said I

'Yes' says he.


'MEH!' said I.





What happens if you don't pay the license fee?

And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future. You are interested in the unknown... the mysterious. The unexplainable. That is why you are here. And now, for the first time, we are bringing to you, the full story of what happened on that fateful day.

My friend, we cannot keep this a secret any longer. Let us punish the guilty. Let us reward the innocent. My friend, can your heart stand the shocking facts of grave robbers from outer space?"

You'll get a Courts' Summons for non-payment of TV Licence, and a criminal record and a fine. You then have to pay the unpaid licence fee's for however long they decide you were dodging em for too.

So call it 1500 pounds + whatever they stick on top + a criminal record.  :sad: for fucking TV.


yet another reason for me to not live on that island.

You are required to pay for tv even if you do not use tv.

I think I will stay here in America, where we have socialized tv.

Bwa ha ha!  I think we can actually fuck with a lot of people with the phrase "socialized tv".  It has potential.

I think we should have this too.

It would create a lot of jobs.

We should also hire thousands of federal window breakers.  It would give repairmen jobs.

We can call it the Fuck You tax.

  :mrgreen:

Sums it all up nicely that does. Its mandatory to pay, even if you don't own or use one.

Also, I do not believe there is such a power-trip-obsessed-tin-pot-dictator-style-jobsworth-job in the USA as TV Licence Inspector.

Possibly traffic warden. Possibly.

DMV clerk.

I shall visit this DMV next time Bella has to go, to see the horror first hand. I hear bad things.

It's like visiting the Soviet Union, and popping around the corner just to buy a roll of toilet paper.

Well, I guess we know where Mrs. Bernadine Behaf lived. At least in 1985.
