Last month we brought you news of a challenge TV Licensing were set to prove the effectiveness of their detector van technology.
YouTube user onlywhenpissed, now a regular visitor to this parish, openly announced he would be using an unlicensed TV for the period of a month. He invited TV Licensing to contact him for his address, so they could head around to his place and use their magical equipment to detect his terrible crime. To make things even more interesting he added the following incentive: "£1000 payable if you (TV Licensing) can do it plus a further £1000 to any charity of your choosing."
Last year we exclusively published the embarassing BBC revelation that evidence obtained by their detection equipment had never been presented for scrutiny in open court.
Sadly it would seem TV Licensing failed to rise to the challenge. Perhaps the threat of having their people appear on YouTube deterred them, so they decided to focus on less tech-savvy pensioners or single mothers instead. After all, that's where the easy commission payments are to be found.
