Famed for beautiful rolling countryside, yappy little dogs, overpriced tea rooms and people that can't pronounce the letter "H" correctly - particularly those hailing from Alifax and Uddersfield. It is also a popular haunt for TV Licensing goons (see here and here for starters), as further evidenced by today's YouTube offering.
We don't know too much about this one, but we do know it comes from somewhere in Yorkshire (accepting the fact Yorkshire is rather large). Hopefully more information will come to light and we'll be able to pinpoint the exact location for the sake of completeness.
A TV Licensing "Enforcement Officer" - his own description - is shown making enquiries at an unlicensed property. The male occupant, who would do well to remember the old adage "if you can't say anything sensible, best say nothing at all", makes it quite clear that he has no intention of paying for a TV licence.
Ordinarily that might not be a problem, but coupled with his opinion that "it's not a legal right to pay it anymore" and "the only incentive you've got to make me pay that is by fining me", then he's potentially storing up problems for the future.
Our advice to anyone who doesn't legally need a TV licence is the same as always: Totally ignore TV Licensing.
Say absolutely nothing at all to any TV Licensing goon that visits your home. By saying nothing the occupier is depriving TV Licensing of its most effective weapon - information. Without information, TV Licensing is powerless to advance its enquiries any further.
We would discourage anyone from discussing points of law with a TV Licensing goon, unless they are well clued-up on such matters or actively seeking confrontation.
