Don't buy a TV licence if you feel that strongly. Nobody is forcing you to own a TV.

You don't buy a TV license. You buy a television set out of your hard earned money then some scary people demand money off you every so often so that you can watch your television in your own home. And if you don't give them your money which they're demanding from you, they start sending you threats like any bully would, and if you still don't give into them they send some big men to your house to force their way in and steal your possessions.

Exactly who are the criminals here and why are you defending them?

You don't buy insurance, MOT or tax ...you buy a car.

You don't buy insurance or council tax.. you buy a house.

Try again.

I'm talking about TV licences, because that's what you brought up to have a pop at LT. Now you want to change it to cars and houses.

Well I'm glad that's settled. So what did we learn here? If you oppose someone connected to a service or product, just don't buy it....simples!

There's loads of free sites where you can watch TV shows & movies without a license.
Plus there's stuff on YouTube .
