What Has The BBC Ever Given Us?

I hate people who complain the licence fee. It's the best value anything you'll ever buy and the BBC is one of the things of which we should be most proud. So STFU licence fee whingers, you're all idiots - back to your adverts, £700 annual Sky bills and whingeing.

    The BBC is regulated by a Royal Charter which specifically requires the BBC to keep clear of all political bias of any kind, and records show that the BBC has received vast sums of money from agencies of the European Union in return for BBC support of this Union: This Contract of Evil is contrary to both the Spirit & the Letter of the BBC Charter, which has the force of law. http://www.old.tpuc.org/stoppayingtvlicencefees The BBC is run by a bunch of Marxist scumbags who support extremist organisations and defend their values whilst talking down anything British.

    What happens when all TV is streamed over the internet? Apple TV is already here doesn’t require a TV licence (as it’s not a live broadcast). All TV will be available to stream eventually, we’re taking in a matter of years if not months until nobody will need a TV license anymore. What then?

    If it’s such good value why are they scared of offering a choice? Why do they need to employ a mafia to enforce it? There’s nothing like this in the world even outside free market capitalism.

    • You do have a choice – a choice not to have a television. The mafia doesn’t enforce it – the law does. There are several other television systems in other countries that are run like the BBC, they’re just not as good.

        How do you watch sky without a television? There is simply no basis or logic anymore for charging a fee for owning a piece of equipment that has many uses many of which having nothing to do with the BBC. The BBC uses a private company which use legally very questionable tactics. Time to end the farce.

        • Like I said, you have a choice not to have a television. If you want to watch Sky, you have to pay the TV licence. If you want private medicine, you still have to pay your taxes to fund the NHS. If you want to buy bottled water, you still have to pay your rates. That’s life, sunshine.

            You don’t seem to be getting it. The BBC don’t own my TV, if I don’t want to watch BBC I should have the choice not to pay them. It’s contrary to all free market principles and all normal logic. When BBC was the only service it might have made sense but that situation is long gone and yet they are still hanging desperately on to the ridiculous concept of a ‘TV license’. It must be abolished simple as that and could easy be declared illegal by a high court if we took up the cause.

          • Ehhhh, a load of old cant of the kind you can read on any ranty right-wing blog. There’s a licence fee – you have to pay for it if you want to watch telly. Deal with it.

            The fact that no-one, including yourself, can seem to find any argument to legitimize it seems to be the thing to take away.

          • Legitimise it? It’s enshrined in the law, who needs to legitimise it?

            You pay your Sky subscription for several-hundred channels, but you have to pay extra for the BBC channels, even if you don’t watch them, cos “it’s been around forever innit”. What a load of bollocks.

          • I refer you to the answer I gave some weeks ago.

    The problem are the methods by which it is collected. BBC don’t want to associate themselves with their letterbombing operation, so set up a subsidiuary called TV Licencing, and then outsourced collection to Capita. Capita’s methods involve mailbombing the entire population with a series of fraudulent templated letters stating all sorts of nonsense, tricking occupiers into signing incriminating forms and simply not believing anyone that says they don’t watch TV or just use iPlayer. The BBC puts forward a credible brand, but then employ methods of intimidating its customers that are quite simply appalling.

    I changed my wifi name to ‘TV licensing detector van’. They should pay me comission.

    Ok, this is a great advert. I agree with it. However, it’s not an adturd. What the hell is it doing on this site?

    • Now and again I flag up stuff I like. Don’t worry though. Only very occasionally.
