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 Visiting Isle of Man


TV Licensing goons are packing their sunnies and Speedos for their next adventure-packed, taxpayer-funded holiday to the Isle of Man.

During their last visit the goons - one of whom is the button-buster shown above - somehow managed to lose half their stationary, had their hire car daubed in Post-It notes and featured in several YouTube video encounters. For some inexplicable reason every Islander knew what they looked like and where they were staying within about half an hour of their arrival.

This year we're confident members of the Manx legally-licence-free community will have a few more tricks up their sleeves. We can be sure they'll be armed and ready with their cameras, poised waiting for the first fat-knacker to knock on their doors.

TV Licensing PR harlot Claire Wotherspoon spoke to Manx Radio about the goons' imminent arrival: "We're going to be making contact with unlicensed addresses on the Island, just to find out whether they need a TV licence. They need a licence if they're watching or recording live TV. 

"Last year we found more than 500 people on the Isle of Man watching TV without a valid licence.

"We'll give them advice on if they do, if they don't, and explain the different ways you can watch TV and whether those need a licence.

"It's really important that people do understand that, because if they are found without a licence they could be risking prosecution and a fine of up to £1000."

Stay tuned for updates from the Island!
