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.

TV Licensing Goon Top Trumps


We're diversifying here at the TV Licensing Blog.

Yesterday we described the exhilarating pursuit of goon fishing, which is guaranteed to provide hours of entertainment on those long, sunny, TV-free evenings.

Today we're introducing TV Licensing Goon Top Trumps, which is our own twist on the classic children's card game of a similar name. A few days ago our distinguished colleague TJoK devised a similar game of threatogram top trumps, which helped spur this variation.

Every card contains a photograph of one of TV Licensing's finest doorstep cold callers, which is shown alongside their fictional, albeit very close to reality, doorstep performance stats. Making a special appearance in the deck is none other than Smoggy "Rapist Goon" Gary Catterick, who features on our preview image above. Also plucked from the TV Licensing archives are some of their better known celebrities, including: Shakespeare-loving "Goon Master General" Ian Doyle; warbling Welsh "Elvis Tribute Goon" Steve Maitland Thomas; and scruffy-looking "Startled Goon" Adam Russell.

TV Licensing Goon Top Trumps is available to download free with our compliments.

Get it here and spread the word!

LIke the idea, but surely it should be Top Chumps...?
