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 Goon Doesn't Like Being Filmed


During this short encounter one of TV Licensing's visiting officers knocks on the door and is confronted by the switched on occupier brandishing his switched on camera. To his credit he behaves in a polite enough manner. He quickly abandons the visit, exactly as he should according to TV Licensing's Visiting Procedures.

It is noted that this goon knocks on the door, even though a notice clearly indicates that callers are not welcome without an appointment. In other words TV Licensing, as an unsolicited caller, has no legal right of access to that property, but decide to chance their hand anyway. They are effectively trespassing by remaining on the property against the instructions on the notice. A notice on the door is a perfectly valid legal instruction, but TV Licensing often interpret the law in their own mysterious way.

This goon also makes the schoolboy error of parking his car in such a position that the registration number is clearly visible to the camera.

Back to goon school for you my lad!

They may not like being filmed, but that's the way to deal with them.
