Re: TV licensing...

Hi, Yes! Why does a company demand payment to watch live broadcast that could be made in another country and nothing to do with this country or the company that imposes this fee on over 30 million people?

Hi, Are they posted or hand-delivered, posting must be cheaper I suppose otherwise it will rely on someone driving to your house. The problem here is that BBC licence payers Are paying for the service to seek out and destroy those tax dodgers. If you lot of duckers and divers would just pay a licens...
