A very short YouTube clip has appeared, which reinforces the effectiveness of the humble camera at scaring off uninvited TV Licensing employees.
The occupier opens his door and immediately announces his intent to film the shiny-headed miscreant peddling the BBC's immoral wares. There's no doubt that the visitor is from TV Licensing as he's clutching their favourite brand of PDA and opens the conversation with "have you recently moved here?" Any lingering doubts about his identity all but vanish when he scarpers the moment a camera is mentioned.
I'm sure he's a nice enough chap who finds himself in the embarrassing situation of working for Capita to earn a crust. After all, we're in the middle of the worst recession for a generation, so beggars can't be choosers. But surely there must be more honest jobs out there?
I hear prostitution pays quite well and unlike working for TV Licensing you actually get to keep all of the money you screw people for.
