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.

TV Licensing Doorstep Intimidation

What a wanker!

This arrogant TV Licensing lacky dispenses with their usual introductory pleasantries and bursts straight into the aggressive "I'm applying for a search warrant" bullshit, when confronted by one plucky YouTube uploader earlier today.

Despite having encroached on the occupier's territory this TV Licensing man squeals like a stuffed pig at the prospect of being filmed. Contrary to the TV Licensing Visiting Procedures he fails to present his identification when requested, deciding instead wave his imaginary "search warrant application" and spout more drivvel about how a search can be avoided by co-operating with TV Licensing. It's all absolute bullshit of course, designed to intimidate the legally licence-free into compliance. It's completely fair to say that at this stage TV Licensing don't have the foggiest idea about whether the property in question needs a licence or not, but that's not going to deter them from mounting a doorstep offensive.

This miscreant's picture remains here in perpetuity, but as Capita have started asking YouTube to remove these videos it may not remain live for long. Anyone would think they had something to hide! View it and download it while the opportunity remains.

Remember the face.

Edit: Read about and see footage of TV Licensing's next visit to this property here. They return a month later with no search warrant, which serves to reinforce our initial point that Mr Grumpy's menacing legal threats are lies designed to intimidate the occupier into paying. The sad thing is that he's probably tried the same deceitful tactics successfully on people less aware of the law.
