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.

Capita Braces for TV Licensing Defeat

The BBC, Capita and Fishburn Hedges absolutely love our blog. They're often here within minutes of us publishing a new blog post all about their sinister little operation. 

They obviously have us bookmarked, which is surprising considering the BBC has previously said they don't hold any information about our blog. Not that I believe half of what the BBC says.

It could just be coincidental but Capita landed here again this morning on the search term "TV licence to IBM". Are they bracing themselves for bad news? Is Capita's TV Licensing gravy train about to derail? Is that why Capita apparently don't give a stuff about their striking employees, who are on the picket lines again next Monday? Because they'll all be transferring to another employer anyway when the TV Licensing Operations contract comes crashing to an end?

If I was a betting man I would say Capita is about to lose the lucrative BBC contract which is up for renewal in a matter of weeks. In anticipation of bad news their employees are frantically Googling around to spy on the opposition, namely IBM.

If Capita do lose the contract it'll not be a moment too soon.

If someone else wins the contract, will those who withdrew right of access have to withdraw it again?

It depends on the wording of the WOIRA request made.

If it was anything along the lines of; "I am hereby removing the implied right of access to my property, [address], to employess and/or agents of TV Licensing and/or the BBC"; then it wouldn't be necessary to reissue the WOIRA notice because it would still be valid for whoever took over the contract.
