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.

Brave Victim Fights to Block Lishman's Release

A young woman who was sexually abused by a former TV Licensing goon has waived her right to anonymity in a bid to block the deviant's release from prison.

Amy Hannah, 20, was only 8-years-old when depraved fantasist Daniel Lishman exploited the trust of her family and sexually abused her.

Lishman, a TV Licensing goon at the time, began a casual relationship with Amy's mother back in 2006. Amy and her younger brother, then aged 3, took an initial liking to Lishman, who began to read them bedtime stories. It wasn't long before Lishman's bedtime attention took a more sinister turn. Little Amy, who was sworn to secrecy by the pervert, endured months of abuse at his hands before he eventually ended his relationship with her mother.

It wasn't until several years later that Amy plucked up the courage to tell her cousin about Lishman's abuse. By a spooky stroke of coincidence his e-fit featured on Crimewatch at the very time police were visiting to take Amy's statement.

In 2011 Lishman was convicted of 26 offences, including one of rape and twelve of sexual assault. Three of the thirteen victims had disabilities or learning difficulties. He was jailed for a minimum of 11 years but, in a case similar to that of black cab rapist John Worboys, would be eligible for parole anytime now.

Amy said: "I'm scared of him getting parole. It's something that crosses my mind quite a lot. It's scary knowing maybe one day soon he's ­going to be out."

The scars of Amy's abuse are understandably deep and have a lasting impact on her daily life. Her hopes of becoming a police officer lie in tatters, because she doesn't have the confidence to deal with older men. She is still undergoing monthly therapy sessions and finds relationships difficult.

Lishman was told he will be subject to a Sexual Offences Prevention Order on his release from prison and he will be placed on the Sex Offenders Register for life.
