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.

Tattooed TV Licensing Goon

Judging by the accents this latest TV Licensing goon encounter, uploaded to YouTube less than an hour ago, comes from somewhere in the Yorkshire area.

From what we can gather the goon, who is employed by TV Licensing operations contractor Capita Business Services Ltd, knocked at the door and it would appear that the occupier first responded at the window. Having determined that the unsolicited cold-caller was a TV Licensing goon, the occupier then went to answer the door with his camera rolling. 

The goon, no doubt conscious of the fact he's now a movie star, refused to confirm his name or show his ID card. Bizarrely for a man making TV Licensing enquiries he also said "I don't work for TV Licensing". Given that comment, we'd suggest that he's not to most honest of people, which is fairly characteristic of most goons we encounter.

The occupier confirms that he does not need a TV licence, before the goon leaves and hops into his car at the bottom of the road. The vehicle, a dark blue/black Skoda Fabia, is shown in the image below.

Remember that anyone who does not legally need a TV licence, just like the occupier in this most recent video, does not need to communicate or co-operate with TV Licensing at all. Furthermore, the occupier is well within his legal rights to film and distribute footage of anyone who visits his property.

Highway Code

DO NOT stop or park:
opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space

Am I correct in thinking that the driver of the vehicle with registration YM52 SEY is in breach of the road traffic act, due to the way in which the vehicle has been parked, contrary to the highway code?

He's also on the pavement. A class act.
