dtaylor5632: I have the picture of the new Specsavers advert, you walking around Manchester being followed by a pair of Gucci shoes, thinking "If only I didn't pay my TV licence" :D
You bar steward!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for reminding me!!!!!! Not quite Gucci at a £150 (I wish! its hard to find Jimmy Choo's in the sales that low!)
Back on track
dtaylor5632: i think) that the law has changed in the EU and you can access British TV throughout the EU.
You still need a licencing number.
delphiandomine: The golden rule with TV licence inspectors - never, ever allow them into your property. You can actually entirely legally put a notice up saying that representatives of Capita are banned from your property - and you're perfectly entitled to use reasonable force to remove them if they turn up.
You are evidently unaware of the law Delph! If you are breaking the law which you are by not buying a TV licence (the term is evading), then you are liable...and the £1,000 fine you are culpable for - so if they pursue a fine and then pass on to a debt company it esculates, its rather not worth it. As I said, I pay mine, rather than be a scum bag that enjoys the benefits rather than paying...Call me old fashioned but I'd rather abide by the law in the country I live, like all my family do...silly me for not breaking the rules! You lot who did are obviously so rock 'n' roll! :D <sarcastic tone implied>
