Having experienced a recent drought of fresh TV Licensing goon videos, it was somewhat of a relief to see a new video appear yesterday.
The video, filmed somewhere in Yorkshire, shows Capita TV Licensing goon Neil visiting a legally-licence-free property.
After enquiring if the occupier was filming, Neil volunteered the fact he was from TV Licensing and briefly flashed his ID card towards the camera.
As soon as goon Neil uttered the words "TV Licensing" the occupier said "bye bye" and closed the door on him.
That was it: No confrontation, no volunteering of information, no interaction - just "bye bye" and "slam". It was a textbook perfect example of how to deal with an unwanted TV Licensing goon landing on your doorstep.
The presence of the camera also means that this TV Licensing goon isn't likely to run off to his bosses claiming that he heard a non-existent TV set, or the occupier admitted to watching non-existent TV programmes.
Anyone who doesn't legally need a TV licence - just like the creator of this video - does not need to engage with TV Licensing at all. They are under no legal obligation to assist TV Licensing with its enquiries - indeed doing so is often a total waste of time and causes more problems than it solves. We have known many totally innocent people end up accused of offences they haven't committed, simply by making the mistake of trusting a TV Licensing goon.
Simply say nothing and close the door.
We are grateful to the creator of this video - a member of the Active Resistance to the TV Licence community of Facebook - for kindly allowing us to upload it to our own YouTube channel.
