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.

BBC Sets Tough Diversity Target

The BBC has set itself tough diversity targets for leading on-air roles by 2020.

Within the next four years the Corporation has pledged that half its 21,000 workforce would be female; 15% would come from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds; and 8% would be from lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender backgrounds.

The BBC said by 2020 it would have a workforce that was "at least as diverse or more diverse than any in the industry” and “on-screen targets that cover a much wider range of diversity than any in the industry".

This might sound old-fashioned, but I really believe in recruiting the best person for the job based on their abilities, not their gender, skin colour, disability or sexuality.

More on this in The Guardian.

Have we got the figures as a percentage of paedophile employees we can expect to see employed by the BBC in the next four years?
I suppose we can expect to see this rise if sexual preference is an important factor when recruiting new staff at the BBC.
