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: Cornish Goon Reluctant to Identify Himself

Cornish TV Licensing goon Justin Moses got more than he bargained for during a visit to a legally-licence-free property.

He was confronted by a TV Licensing goon's worst nightmare - a clued up occupier with a camera.

To his credit Moses conducts his enquiries in a polite enough manner, despite the occupier bearing down with increasingly assertive requests for him to leave. 

Indeed, had it not been for Moses' reluctance to leave the property and confirm his identity, this video wouldn't be featuring here on the TV Licensing Blog.

Moses claims to have taken up his immoral employment only recently, but it appears he has already adopted the strategy of reading out the property's address to the camera.

In our opinion the occupier engages in too much conversation with Moses. It is apparent that the occupier becomes increasingly agitated, which may play into TV Licensing's hands if they choose to make subsequent visits to the property.

A better option would have been to calmly say "I don't legally need a TV licence" and close the door. 

If a goon refuses to show their ID card to the camera, then the occupier can simply lower the camera, inspect their ID card, and announce clearly the name (and spelling if appropriate) written on it.

A quick google search shows that this goon is still employed by City Electrical Factors in Falmouth:


I live in Cornwall. Nothing is anonymous or forgotten in Cornwall. This will rightly follow this goon around with him everywhere he ever goes.

No one has automatic right of access. Hence, be polite, do not engage in any way except order them to leave the property.
