Local press does Capita's dirty work.

For those of you that may be unaware, the job of forcing us all to pay the TV licence is not done by the BBC nor 'TV Licensing'.

Auntie Beeb employs enforcers who pretend to be the BBC/TV licensing when engaging with those who cannot or will not pay for the privilege of subsidising Leftist propaganda which is pumped into the airwaves regardless if we want it or not.

Every six months or so my local newspaper has a little story and it looks like this week is that week again when the following is printed;

TV licence dodgers are fined

New figures show that almost 900 TV licence dodgers in Kilmarnock were caught during the first six months of 2010.

The 887 local 'evaders' are among almost 209,000 people caught across the UK during the first half of the year.

The average evasion rate remains at a low of just five per cent, meaning that almost 95 per cent of properties are correctly licensed.

Fergus Reid, TV Licensing spokesperson, said:

"The vast majority of people in Kilmarnock pay their licence fee, and to be fair to those who pay, we have to be firm with those who attempt to get away without paying.

We take TV licence evasion seriously but we give people every opportunity to pay, we will not hesitate to prosecute if people continue to break the law.

We do understand that some people may find it difficult to pay their licence fee in one go, which is why we offer numerous ways to spread the cost, including monthly direct debit, which can be set up very quickly online, and a weekly cash payment plan."

Anyone watching television television illegally risks prosecution and a fine of up to £1,000.


Tell you what Fergus, old bean.

Fuck right off. And Crapita can fuck right off as well.

And shame on the Kilmarnock Standard, and any other local rag, for printing bollocks like the above.

Fight back. Loads of info here.

Almost an identical article was put out in our local rag in February

Pretty sure it's just a template that they tweak depending on the area.

The bastards.

Identical 'template' in our local rags this week.

Only difference is "Ian Fannon" is our local TV Licensing Spokesman.

Bet you dodge paying your Train fare Rab...........dont you..


My mate derrick did not have a T.V. never watched it ever(must admit perhaps he was right)

had a massive bundle of letters from the TV Licensing claiming he did have a TV even after he let them in to show he didnt have a T.V or even an aerial......

this went on and on for months him coming to work telling us the next hilarious installment.........
until finally he told the TV people to fuck off and take him to court they didn't
but he still got reminders which he threw in the bin

Rab what we are allowed is the cosh to beat us down.

The fight back is not action but realisation, TPTB, us, and our lackies cannot handle that.

How's the youngster?

Heads up.

Rab, it's time the fightback against these fuckwits started. Why do you have to pay Sky and the BBC. Let them have ads and be done with it and then we can record the progs like I do now on SKY+ and scud through the ads. That must be costing the advertisers a fortune. I never watch a programme live now, if it's got ads. A guy I used to work with in England was the same, not having a TV in the house and he got hounded all the time. You can get all the decent BBC progs on the Net now anyway and that costs fuck all.
