Seems as though the original video of my encounter with the tv license man was taken down by youtube a friend uploaded it with the guys face blocked out, so here it is for anyone that wants to watch it ..........

A long awaited update .........

Ok so its been a few years now since I wrote this blog and many people are probably wondering if I've been hauled away to some dungeon somewhere for not paying the tv license ...... Well its good news people, Im still here! lol

In the past few years I have learnt many things about the law on the internet because getting rid of the tv gave me lots of time to do so :) ..... Well within all this time I've had a few visits from the tv license people, 2 visits were within a one month period, and probably 2 more visits widely spaced apart ..... So all in all I have not been harassed by them.

I say I have not been harassed by them because out of the approximate 4 visits there was only one who was rude enough to make my blood pressure rise.

Through all of my studies of the law and many different stories I have seen of people dealing with this sort of thing on the internet I have come up with a very good technique to deal with tv license agents at my door .............

Through all of my studies I have realised that the tv licensing company is just a corporation, a business, and as such has no authority in law to demand ANYTHING from any man or woman without their consent ...... There is not one business out there that has the authority to force money out of a man or woman for service if they do not consent. .... Merely putting an aerial into your tv and switching it on is NOT an act of CONTRACT and has never been and will never be.

SO, keeping this in mind when I answer the door I prepare my mind as though im answering the door to a windows salesman, not an "authority" or some other scary envisionment of a man, but merely a salesman ...... When I answer the door they generally say something like "hello are you mr so and so" .... to which I will say "Who is asking?" ...... When they say "tv licensing" I scrunch my face a little as though someone offered to sell me a lucky rabbits foot and say "aghhhh no thanks" .... This generally causes confusion in their mind as you can see from their face, then youl get something like "but this property is unlicensed" to which you can say "yes it is, but I do not require what you are OFFERING" (remember a business can only ever make OFFER, they cant FORCE you to buy) ....... Again you'l get some form of confused look and maybe something like "what do you mean?" ..... To this you can simply reply ... "you work for a company right? a corporation?" if they are smart they will say yes, so then you can say something like "ok so you work for a business, as a business you are offering a service, a service I do not require, so thanks, but no thanks" then you simply smile say "have a nice day" and shut the door terminating the conversation.

A couple of the men that came to my door understood exactly what I was saying and smiled and said "ok you have a nice day too" and walked away in peace. Another guy got a little arsey but when I explained that all contracts in law have to be entered into willingly he backed down and said thank you for my time ...... Another one was a complete brain washed idiot and got very angry and started saying I HAVE TO PAY ..... He also started asking if I paid taxes etc etc getting very antagonising ..... I ended up shouting at him asking if hes happy paying for little brown people to be blown up in other countries by being a good slave and paying his taxes, he replied yes .......... You have to understand, some of the people who come to your door will be thoroughly brainwashed and will even get abusive, but remember, THEY knocked on YOUR door. ... If they get abusive do not be afraid to stand up to this intruder into your life, they are UNWANTED visitors. Treat them like you would ANY unwanted visitor, they do NOT have the right to harass people.

Well that is my method for dealing with doorstep callers and I must say its works out well the majority of the time, because mot people dont want confrontation and they are "just doing their job", at the end of the day, most people just want to live, in peace. ... And think about it LOGICALLY, are they going to ring the police and say "erm yeh hi, i work for a business, and I knocked on someones door and they said no and closed the door" ..... the police would be like "yeh, and what?" .. haha ...

Well its been a few years and I thought there might be people who appreciate and even get help from this update, so I hope you all enjoy this update and helps bring some peace of mind. It must be 6 or 7 years since I stopped paying, nothing has happened to me, I havnt been hauled off to court or some dungeon to rot ...... The tv license is one massive con to the tune of billions per year, billions that is being sucked from the british people in times where people can barely afford to heat their homes in the winter, when jobs are scarce, when food and energy prices rise through the roof. If you feel The money is better in your pocket then fuck the pedophile ridden, corrupt BBC, fuck the ty license bullies who's main income in fines comes from single women at home on their own with kids to bring up. Remember, dont live in fear and NEVER willingly let these people through your door, its at that moment you CONTRACT with them.

I hope this helps.

tv license guy sent with his tail between his legs!

Ok so I've had a visit off the TV licensing company today. It was at 3.35 pm on the 07/10/2009.
I had a knock at the door and I asked who it was. "Mr O'brien.. TV licensing. I'm here to check your card." he said through the glass. "yeah sure. Hold on a minute." I said, and went to retrieve my video camera. By the time I got back to my front door he was already downstairs and out the bottom door, so I shouted him back through the open window on the landing." hey where you going?" At this he came back and up the stairs, SINGING MERRILLY, where I was waiting with my video camera...... And here are the fruits of my labour...

So who was this man that came round to my house? He didn't even introduce himself. He didn't even deliver whatever message he was sent to deliver. This is the man that has been sent to enforce these, so important laws. What changed when he seen the camera? Wont these people show their motives when they can be held accountable for their actions?

This is just more evidence to me that this is a corrupt company, who like preying on people who wont stick up for themselves... And let me ask you this. If that guy goes back and tells his superiors that I wouldn't answer the door, could this be used as so called "evidence"?

I wonder how many other people hes been trying to scare today, how many single women, or old people that are made to believe that they have to let these people in to search their homes, or face a fine of £1000.

So its been 5 months since I started this blog. Thats 5 months that it has taken for them to send somebody round. Wheres the radar van? Thats what I want to know!

I would like to take this oppurtunity to say thankyou to all my followers, for the support and all the good comments too, and a special thanks to 'All Me', I appreciate the help in spreading the word, cheers man. And I would also like to dedicate this video to John, who liked my last video so much that it would be wrong not to.Thanks for the good words John.
And please spread the word as much as possible and get people to follow to show support...

Thanks everybody.

Ok so I've had another threatening letter today, calling me a criminal, saying that a 'TEAM' of enforcement officers are going to come round my house, etc etc.... Check out the video and make your own mind up..

One part of the letter I didn't touch on in the video is where the letter says that, if they cannot gain access to my property then they may apply for a SEARCH WARRANT off the courts.....
So whats gona happen if they come to your home every year, which they have been known to do, to ask if they can come in? What if you say no? Are you going to be subject to them applying for a warrent year after year? Could they essentially have the right to come into your home, your private place of residence, year after year, just because you don't own a tv?
So to stop these strangers coming in your home and searching it every year, do you have to buy a £143 tv license?...... THIS SEEMS VERY WRONG TO ME!

So anyway... This is my latest encounter with the tv licencing. Lets wait and see what happens next eh... Lets see what methods they use after this " FINAL NOTIFICATION ".. Haha.

Licence dodging '' On The Rise''

Latest news says that the amount of people evading their tv licence fees, is rising. The recession has seen the number of TV licence evaders across the UK shoot up by 5,000 during the first half of 2009 compared to the same period last year, a study reveals. Although latest figures by TV Licensing showed that 95% of properties were still licensed, almost 214,000 people have been watching TV without a valid licence, with an average evasion rate of over 5%.

5% doesn't seem enough to me. This number should be more like 100%.
Everybody would be better off getting rid of their TV, and getting the internet instead. Its about the same price as a TV licence, but you get loads more for your money. You can get any information you want. Right at your fingertips. Its amazing. And theres so many free sites out there now, like youtube or metacafe, that you will almost never be stuck with nothing for entertainment.

And it doesn't stop there, oh no. You can also get BBC iplayer for free. Yes thats right, you can get everything that has been on any BBC channel in the last month, for free. Whether its been on TV or on the radio, it doesn't matter!

So while people get this for free on the internet, people with TV's have to pay for a licence... WHAT A RIPOFF!!


In September 2008, the BBC's governing body, the BBC Trust, launched a review of TV Licensing's methods, following complaints about "heavy-handed" and "intimidating" tactics, and during December 2008, it was reported by the press that the chairman of the all-party Commons Culture, Media and Sport committee had accused TV Licensing of behaving "like the Gestapo", employing "tactics that are outrageous", saying: "The tactics used by TV Licensing in their letters are intimidatory and cause genuine distress. Their records are not always correct, but they write letters that assume members of the public are criminals". Which come to think of if that is exactly what they have been doing to me for the past 3 months, even though I DON'T watch TV.

In 2004, the Institute for Public Policy Research criticised the TV licence fee for its regressive impact, pointing out that it represents a much higher proportion of income for low-income households, that evaders are most likely to be single parents, lone tenants, pensioners and the economically inactive, and that the difficulties they have in paying the licence fee are compounded by the penalties enforced for non-payment.
Also in 2004, the BBC reported that "Almost 70% of people in the UK want changes to the way the BBC is funded", following an ICM poll for their current affairs programme Panorama, which showed that 31% were in favour of the existing licence fee system, 36% said the BBC should be paid for by a subscription, and 31% wanted advertising to pay for the programmes.

Four years later, in August 2008, the Guardian newspaper reported that "The BBC is facing an uphill battle to maintain support for the licence fee", stating that according to an Ipsos MORI poll the newspaper had commissioned, 41% agreed that the licence fee is an "appropriate funding mechanism" and 37% disagreed; but when asked whether the licence fee is "good value for money", 47% disagreed, with more than half of them disagreeing strongly. The poll also showed that there is no longer a majority believing that the licence fee assured them of distinctive programming not available elsewhere ― which, the newspaper said, had long been one of the key arguments for its existence: 41% of the population disagreed with only 30% agreeing. The poll also showed that opinion was split by a growing north-south and socio-economic divide.

Me myself I don't believe that people should pay a licence fee.... 142.50 a year is disgusting!

If 95% of homes currently have a licence, and 214.000 don't, then that is 4 million 280 thousand households that do have a licence.... So what is 4,280,000 x £142.50? ...........

£609,900,000. Thats how much. Over 6 BILLION English pounds. The BBC also use this money to fund two other channels that are only available on digital, which alot of licence holders do not have access to, which in its-self seems like robbery to me.

So after all this information I hope a few people will be willing to join in the cause, as the more people that stop paying, the less of a grip the TV licencing will have on people.
Ya never know... we might actually get free TV one day.
