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.

Another Freeman Tackles TV Licensing on YouTube

Members of the freemen of the land movement are exerting what they believe to be their lawful rights against TV Licensing employees visiting their homes.

I love these freemen of the land. Their lack of understanding of the law is even more humerous than TV Licensing's. It makes for very entertaining viewing.

Behold freeman Mr Taylor as he attempts to argue that the Communications Act 2003, as an Act of Parliament, is an example of commercial law that requires the consent of the people to be deemed valid.

Advice to other budding freemen:
  • Do not try to argue the law with TV Licensing visitors, because in this rare exception they will probably be better informed than you are.
  • As soon as you hear the words "Hello, I'm from TV Licensing" say nothing and close the door. There's no need to complicate matters any more than necessary.
  • Should a TV Licensing employee cause you alarm, distress or intimidation by persisting to bang on your door or shout through your letterbox call the police. 
  • TV Licensing employees have no legal right to remain on your property once you have terminated dealings with them on the doorstep. They are, however, notoriously uneconomical with the truth, so will attempt to bullshit you that they have special quasi-official powers to do whatever they want. They don't.

I agree with your advice completely. Yet again, well said.
