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.

Shakespeare TV Licensing Victory Makes the Papers

The Thurrock Gazette today published details of how an Essex man successfully defeated TV Licensing in court after being wrongly convicted of TV licence evasion.

Michael Shakespeare, 54, from Grays in Essex was wrongly convicted on what can only be described as the most spurious of evidence. It was evidence so lacking in credibility that TV Licensing's own employees contradicted it in court.

We wrote about Mike's case back in April, shortly after his conviction had been quashed in the landmark ruling at Basildon Crown Court. Please read our back article carefully for an insight into the sinister and deceitful tactics employed by TV Licensing and fully sanction by Licensing Authority, the BBC.

To put not to fine a point on it the pivotal evidence that TV Licensing presented as fact was picked apart and fully discredited. TV Licensing's timings and witness testimony were riddled with inconsistency.

Where the Thurrock Gazette has led the big nationals will follow. Well hopefully!
