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.

The BBC Contorts Scottish Geography

The BBC is attempting to make Scotland look less significant in the eyes of its viewers.

That's the opinion of Paul Monaghan, SNP Member of Parliament for the Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross constituency in the far north of Scotland.

Dr Monaghan bases his observation on the fact that the BBC weather map is tilted to make it appear that Scotland is geographically much smaller than it actually is.

In fact Scotland, as all GCSE Geography students will know, occupies about one third of the UK's land area, accounts for about 8 percent of the UK population and generates about 10 percent of UK wealth.

We think Dr Monaghan's observation is interesting, but it's just a weather map at the end of the day. The real issue is the way the BBC is short-changing Scotland by surreptitiously employing non-Scots productions companies to work on Scottish programming.

Could this possibly be because the BBC have less control over licensing and legal matters pertaining to licence fee "evasion" in Scotland than they do in the rest of the UK?
