Why we're here:
This blog is to highlight the unjust persecution of legitimate non-TV users at the hands of TV Licensing. These people do not require a licence and are entitled to live without the unnecessary stress and inconvenience caused by TV Licensing's correspondence and employees.

If you use equipment to receive live broadcast TV programmes, or to watch or download on-demand programmes via the BBC iPlayer, then the law requires you to have a licence and we encourage you to buy one.

Enquiry Officer Code of Conduct

Dan McGregor of the BBC TV Licensing Management Team, regular visitors to this parish, has just quoted the following "Code of Conduct" for TV Licensing Enquiry Officers.

In the course of their duties TV Licensing people should:
  • Prove their identity, be polite and explain why they are visiting. 
  • Only enter a property if they are given permission. 
  • Always leave the premises if asked to do so. 
  • Take a statement, if necessary, signed by the interviewee, making sure the interviewee is aware of the consequences of a statement. 
  • Neither threaten nor intimidate.
In his recent FOIA response (RFI20111072) he seems to have omitted any mention of committing rape, fraud, theft or assault.

Fortunately we didn't as the following articles confirm:
