Alarmingly we are running out of titles that succinctly illustrate the arrogance, incompetence, duplicity and deceitfulness of TV Licensing.
Today's title comes from a post of the same name at the Looking After Our Rights blog. We encourage you to head over there and read their full account of how a TV Licensing saleaman threatened them with legal mistruths in their place of work.
To summarise a TV Licensing sales goon knocked on the door of their office, which happened to be unlicensed. The goon rapidly lurched into TV Licensing commission grabbing bullshit mode and told them the complete and utter lie that a licence was needed merely to own a television. Absolute bullshit, just as we'd come to expect from TV Licensing.
Thankfully the author's colleague Mick was slightly better informed than TV Licensing's brain dead simpleton and sent him packing with a flea in his ear.
Remember folks, the law is quite clear that a licence is only required for properties where equipment is installed and used for watching or recording live broadcast TV programmes. No licence is needed for viewing pre-recorded DVDs, catch up TV programmes or CCTV images etc.
Furthermore, no-one is under any legal obligation whatsoever to communicate or cooperate with TV Licensing.
