TV Licensing continues to harass hundreds of thousands of people across the UK despite having been clearly informed that no TV licence is required.
The BBC, in its role as the statutory Television Licensing Authority, is responsible for all aspects of administering, collecting and enforcing the TV licence fee. They perform this function using the smoke and mirrors of the TV Licensing trading name, which serves to distance the BBC from the heinous and dishonest tactics employed in the name of TV licence enforcement. Several prominent Members of Parliament have criticised TV Licensing's tactics, with John Whittingdale having compared them to those of the Gestapo.
A TV licence is only required by those properties where TV equipment is used to receive/record live broadcast TV programmes. Despite this unequivocal fact of law the BBC's contractors, TV Licensing, hound the occupiers of every unlicensed property into buying a licence, regardless of their legal need to do so. As today's YouTube video perfectly illustrates TV Licensing do not believe anyone claiming not to need a licence. In nearly all no-TV claims TV Licensing continue to send their menacing monthly threatograms and doorstep salesmen despite having no legal basis or authority to do so.
The creator of this video claims to have told TV Licensing no less than FIVE TIMES that he doesn't not require a licence, yet still their noxious correspondence and employees continue to contaminate his lawful existence.
Remember folks: TV Licensing is a group of private companies acting for the BBC. Legitimate non-viewers are under no legal obligation to communicate or co-operate with TV Licensing and we strongly suggest they do not. We are aware of several cases where TV Licensing employees have fabricated evidence in order to secure their commission payment. Give them nothing at all. If TV Licensing call simply say nothing, close the door and send them packing.
