A short post today to publicise the existence of the TV Licensing Blog YouTube channel.
TV Licensing, or rather their PR harlots, recently started their own channel, which is naturally of an inferior quality to those that exist already. Within the space of an hour a parody TV Licensing channel was published, which gathered significantly more support than the official version. TV Licensing appear to have exerted their self-perceived authority on YouTube to have that rival channel expunged from the web. It would be a bit bloody rich if they tried that strategy with us, because our channel has actually been around for a couple of years before their's. The fact that TV Licensing are now attempting to use YouTube as a weapon of mass propaganda, has reinforced our resolve to increase our impact.
We have two main reasons for developing our presence on YouTube. Firstly, we're very firmly of the opinion that any publicity is good publicity. The BBC would no doubt disagree with that sentiment, given the amount of their dirty linen that has recently been aired in public. According to a recently disclosed TV Licensing policy document they are concerned about our increasing influence on Twitter, so hopefully we can emulate that concern via YouTube. Secondly, TV Licensing arrogantly think they can censor YouTube. We hate censorship. It's a gutter trick employed only by backward communist states and organisations.
In our opinion, which is no doubt shared by a vast swathe of the UK population, it was BBC censorship and blind eye turning that allowed some of their past stars to predate on vulnerable children. Despite having video footage of literally dozens of hysterical TV Licensing goon encounters, we have decided to only upload those that genuinely show them breaking the rules. It is perfectly legal for the occupier of a property to film any TV Licensing visit. There is a legitimate public interest in any instances of aggression or half-truths peddled by TV Licensing goons on the doorstep. That being the case we challenge TV Licensing and YouTube to censor our channel. Any attempt to do so will simply reinforce our belief that they want to bury all references to the abysmal conduct of their people.
At the moment we are sharing videos produced by like-minded opponents of the BBC and TV Licensing. In future we hope to commission some of our own content. With a little bit of work we should be able to achieve a bigger audience share than BBC Four.
