Why we're here:
This blog is to highlight the unjust persecution of legitimate non-TV users at the hands of TV Licensing. These people do not require a licence and are entitled to live without the unnecessary stress and inconvenience caused by TV Licensing's correspondence and employees.

If you use equipment to receive live broadcast TV programmes, or to watch or download on-demand programmes via the BBC iPlayer, then the law requires you to have a licence and we encourage you to buy one.

Repugnant TV Licensing Saleswoman


"Don't be silly" is the condescending introductory tone of the TV Licensing goon in this video, her biro wagging in wild disapproval at the prospect of being filmed.

The occupier quickly sets her straight that he can legally film anyone he likes in a public place. Had she bothered to read TV Licensing Visiting Procedures, freely available online thanks to the marvels of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, she would realise that she should have abandoned her visit at the first hint of a camera. But this crazy-eyed Italian sounding goon, who obviously knows better than her Capita paymasters, decided to hang around for a fight. Spittle flies from her mouth as her jaw distorts around her free-flowing lies.

The occupier explains several times that he does not watch TV, but she refuses to accept this at face value. She explains that TV Licensing's policy is to enter his property to confirm whether or not he is telling the truth. Evidently on the ball, the occupier rightly tells her she's not going anywhere near his property unless she has a court order.

When informed for the umpteenth time by the occupier that he does not need a TV licence she brazenly retorts: "I do not trust your word. TV Licensing do not trust your word". She then retreats with TV Licensing's favourite hollow threat: "We will come back with the police". Please see our previous post about TV Licensing threats to see our opinion on that.

The occupier replies: "You're not welcome here. Please do not come back. I do not want you in my place". In other words he has quite clearly withdrawn TV Licensing's implied right of access to his property, but I doubt she'll bother recording that on the system.

This goon is a truly despicable piece of work, who lacks the faintest concept of TV Licensing's own procedures.

I do believe they say Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned and that the pen is mightier than the sword.

Her performance shows the first to be true and that the video camera is mightier than the pen.

Some 1st class intelligence on the way tv licensing think of every living person without a tv licence is regarded. Medusa clearly says "TV Licensing doesn't trust you."

The only thing she had left in her armoury when she was truly beaten were threats of return visits. I wonder how long it will be before they send a male goon round to lean on this innocent man in retaliation for the YouTube upload?

A personal message to TV Licensing-The BBC from me. I don't trust you, nobody trusts you and the vile behaviour of your employee seen here is just one of the reasons why.
