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.

Martin: A Capita TV Licensing Goon With Something to Hide

A Capita TV Licensing goon has been caught on camera showing a disguised ID card to the occupier of the property he was visiting.

We don't know much about this incident but the video footage, stills of which are included in this article, shows that the ID card displays the name "Martin" with no surname. The text is blurred, but we've had a lot of practice deciphering blurred text and we're pretty sure, with a 97% confidence factor, that Martin is the name shown.

TV Licensing ID cards, many of which are depicted in the TV Licensing Blog, always have a visible forename and surname. That being the case, we'd suggest that Martin has somehow disguised his ID card to keep his surname hidden from view.

Martin is clearly a TV Licensing goon with something to hide. Why else would he call at someone's property with a disguised ID card? Could it be, perhaps, that he bends the rules when the camera isn't rolling? Is he one of the many TV Licensing goons prepared to write almost anything, truthful or not, in order to meet stiff performance targets and keep their managers happy?

Perhaps Martin is shy about the prospect of being named and shamed across the web. That's the risk a person takes when they work for an organisation as morally corrupt as TV Licensing.

If he doesn't like the TV Licensing requirement to show his ID card on request, then perhaps he should be seeking alternative employment?

If anyone knows Martin's full name please drop us an email and we'll be happy to share it with the world.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if the majority of TVL's "enforcement officers" use false names, particularly when they're not exactly the most popular people on the streets. They don't like showing their ID cards on video and they pretty much run a mile when they see a camera. I'm probably wrong, but as I said, I wouldn't be surprised if it was the case.

The 97% probability factor jibe was class.

One only has to notice how quick he was to offer up his 'ID' for the camera to question his motives. Busted by the blog.
