Re: Television Licence

Re: Television Licence

without getting into it at length as its been covered in another thread you can own a tv that is capable of receiving tv transmissions without a TV license as long as you dont use it to receive live transmissions.Its up to the BBC to prove you are doing which they cant unless you admit to it or let them in to your home which you again do not have to do

a modern tv could be used as a monitor or to watch just dvd's or pre recorded shows and no license would be required

besides its a civil matter you can just slam the door in their face

Re: Television Licence

Topical this.
An error with the Global Positioning System (GPS) network has been blamed for causing problems with digital radio broadcasts last week.
BBC say "In a response to the reported issues, the outages were caused by a rogue GPS satellite (SVN23), which was taken out of service in the evening of 26 January."

Here's where some of your licence money will end up.

BBC jobs reserved for diversity candidates | UK | News | Daily Express

You reckon?

"The opportunities will be limited to female candidates, those with disabilities and those from black, Asian or other ethnic minority backgrounds."

Seems I don't qualify for any of the above, unless you're classing "Scouser" as an ethnic minority?

Ok ... looking for a black muslim woman in a wheelchair ... preferably a Special Olympian ... from Liverpool. Let's throw in a peanut allergy for good measure.

I personally don't think that blacks and women need all that much help these days. With a black in the White House (ok., millions of his countrymen look at him and see a nigger ... most of the rest of us see the President of the United States of America, one whose second term will be highly regarded by historians) ... sports millionaires like LeBron James, billionaire stars like Oprah and Samuel L. Jackson ... and Hilary Clinton, Con Rice, Michelle Howard ... add whoever you want ... things seem to be moving in the right direction without too much added help being required. Things could be better; but we've come a long way since Rosa Parks. Ok scousers are still an unsuccessful minority; but a good football team might help give them a boost. Muslims, too, are still sucking the hind-tit; but once they get out of the Middle Ages, things might improve. Only about 10 muslims have won a Nobel Prize, most of those the Peace Prize, the "Miss Congeniality" award. Jews and other infidels on the other hand .....

Re: Television Licence

Taking a short break from doing the PC Limbo ... Isn't a TV licence a tad out of date. We've come a long way from Holme Moss, when the most exciting show was the train doing London to Brighton in four minutes ... musical interludes were cool, too ... and the test card.

All the neighbours had tuned into Haslingden so we didn't need them any more.

BBC4* had 2 hour Christmas Special. A two hour reindeer pulled sleigh ride across the frozen wilderness of the Arctic. If I could spell soporific that's how I would describe it.

* That's me in trouble again another bloody acronym!
