It's clearly the day for technical issues and not very imaginative blog posts!
TV Licensing's website, which is meant to take the donkey work out of managing your TV licence, is currently acting the donkey itself.
The website, just as you'd expect, is the responsibility of hopelessly incompetent TV Licensing operations contractor Capita Business Services. The BBC requires that Capita keeps the website in tip top condition, but we're aware that it frequently descends into farce.
Anyone currently trying to use the website to renew their TV licence is asked to consider if they really do need a TV licence in the first place. This could be a message from on high, that now is the time to cancel your TV licence and adopt legally-licence-free viewing habits instead.
A TV licence is only required for those properties where equipment is installed or used to receive TV programmes at the same time as they are broadcast to the wider public. Anyone not using equipment in that manner does not legally need a TV licence, despite any pretence by TV Licensing to the contrary.
The New Year is traditionally a time to abandon bad habits, like the subsidising of an organisation as institutionally-corrupt and morally-void as the BBC. The BBC has squandered millions in public money and refuses to release the damning findings of the Dame Janet Smith Review into a culture of sexual abuse.
Just consider how many better things you could spend £145.50 on!
