I think the licence fee is extraordinarily good value for money. Some recent dramas have been stunning, and BBC documentaries, especially those on the natural world (and of those especially the David Attenborough natural world documentaries) are world class achievements. Yes, the BBC is biased, it is probably too lefty now after decades of being too righty, but every single site has a bias, even this one. I’m not a fan of soap operas, but millions are and apparently enjoy them, but give me a real opera every one in a while, as the BBC does, and I’m in. I like to dip into the Proms too, and programmes that mine the archives for past music from TOTP and Old Grey Whistle Test – some great retrospectives there. I see people moaning about too much diversity on the BBC, but not me. I love to see the chap in dreadlocks and a wheelchair cheerfully showing accessible holiday destinations, and the lady on the News in a wheelchair occasionally giving news of how others with disabilities are coping around the world. I like the corniness and fun of fund-raising on the Beeb too, for example the annual silliness of Children in Need participants.
In the meantime David Olusoga in his “House Through Time “ series certainly opened my eyes to how many ordinary people in Britain were invested in the slave trade and “compensation” only paid off in 2015. Whaaaat? Thank you BBC for occasionally bringing home truths like this to ordinary Brits. Some cannot face these unpalatable truths, but I say we should own them and get on with it, not close down the only broadcaster bold enough to bring such truths into the home.
@Barb No apologies for telling you straight that you’re 100% deceived and brainwashed. ALL Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation output is now Cultural Jew Marxist flavoured propaganda. The BBC are 100% controlled by the Rothschild Jews via MI5/MI6. The BBC has been a Communist subversive operation since its inception – anti-white, anti-British, pro-sodomy, pro-feminist, pro-paedophilia and anti-nationalist, hence their employment policy now states: “NO WHITES NEED APPLY”. It’s time you had a wake up call and started to think for yourself!
They don’t need state run broadcasters any more because the Intelligence brainwashes the populace with their corporate owned broadcasters and corporate owned social media. If you look at US, British BBC is an anachronism. US propaganda machine is a set of private corporations and they brainwash people even better so it does not matter really if state owned or not – all significant broadcasters are all Intelligence.
If they are abolishing TV license that means we are closer to fascist state then we were couple years ago.
But yes we should stop paying TV license just to save a bit of money.
But overall BBC is not going to cease to exist.
Please note that they want to charge you for it only because they want to prove to you that BBC needs your money to function – they don’t.
BBC is Intelligence and Mr Rothschild can fund them in all sorts of ways.
Paying for TV License is similar to casting a vote.
When you take part in elections or pay for TV license it becomes part of you and then the Elites can move the blame onto voters because you voted these crooks but you don’t know that Elites promoted these people in the first place.
Who is the current president of EU? A daughter of an influential EU official.
It’s all nepotism.

@FlaviusStilicho Miles, disso, Tavistock Institute shill, Mathis!
@FlaviusStilicho Accurate descriptions are not insults – the cap fits, so wear it sunshine.
Yeah, insult me more.
@FlaviusStilicho That’s because you’re brainwashed, and I have already exposed some of your disso theories, no doubt what you acquired from the Mathis fraud, so that now makes you a stiff necked, stubborn numbskull.
sorry I don’t believe you
The Licence Fee that people pay, is not just for BBC. Without a licence, you are not legally allowed to watch ANY TV programes that are being broadcast live on your tv set or other devices. You are not allowed to watch BBC iPlayer, and the programmes like ITV+1, Quest+1, these are also being broadcast live and again you would technically be breaking the law by watching them without a licence.
But there are many things you can watch without a licence. For instance, all programmes on catch up services, such as My5, All4, and things you can find on Firesticks. Youtube. So long as you are not watching programmes on any channel that are being broadcast live, you can find plenty to watch for free.
The guy up there☝🏻, who mentioned ChilliJonCarne, is pointing anyone reading these messages to the right place to get all the upto date info regarding the Bbc licence Fee. He explains all there is to know about how to cancel your licence and how to handle any letters and also the goons which may knock at your door. They work for a company called Capita. And work on commission. Do not be afraid to open your door to these people. Let them introduce theirselves, and simply say “Not interested, goodbye” and close the door. DO NOT engage any further than that. Treat them like you would a door to door salesman selling kitchenware. Simple as that.
One or two other things that may surprise you all, is that the BBC own such channels as Dave, Gold, and through a different arm of the BBC, they pump out old repeats of programmes that have already been paid for decades earlier by the licence fees, and on these channels are allowed to sell advertising space, and have ADVERTS. and so create further revenue. And up in Scotland, there is a special production company that makes big budget tv programmes that they have complete control over and they are allowed to sell the broadcasting rights all over the world to tonnes of other countries, that also generate MASSIVE revenue.
But getting back to the topic of Hugos clip, I would suggest that BBC have decided, with the latest generation of young adults leaving home for their first time, that this generation is one that watches multiple streaming services and also subscription based services for the content they consume. And the BBC have realised they will be losing the fight to continue with their outdated licence. And will at some point move to a subscription based method of consumption.
The right thing to do now, if you havent already done so, is immediately cancel your TV licence. If you pay monthly direct debits, then ask your bank to stop them ASAP, and within about 8 weeks you will receive a rebate of around £40, unless you paid for the full year in advance, in which case you will receive a much bigger rebate.
I don’t endorse watching live tv without a licence, as this is illegal, but if you choose to, then at least have your TV set not blatantly on show, only for the purpose of not incriminating yourself, should a TV goon attends your property. And if one does do at anytime in the future, either ignore the knock, or happily open the door and simply say “Not interested, goodbye”, and close your door. Job done. 👌🏻
Hope this helps.
It’s interesting this being brought up at this point in time, with the population waking up to the MSM control grid. Jab injuries will evidenced by masses of personal experiences. in spite of media control and censorship. I’m not sure about the ‘Common Law’ thing, but having a legal discourse will permeate the public consciousness. Public opinion will gradually come on board as people realise they have been shafted, denied their human rights. The BBC will become a pariah. No one will be paying their TV license in five years anyway.
@Michael Link as promised: https://worldtruthvideos.website/watch/meet-your-strawman_voaXMbMp89vhsDl.html
Michael “I’m not sure about the ‘Common Law’ thing,” Then you need to start making it a priority. I’ll post some links as soon as World Truth Videos is back online.
@Bella Da Cunha Excellent – you have been a VERY GOOD parent – all credit to you.
When I decided to have children, I also decided that I didn’t want to bring them up watching any tv channels as I deemed them of mediocre content and I didn’t want the children to be brainwashed, programmed. I never bought them any games consoles or the likes. Instead I prepared for them a bespoke media pack of high moral, constructive and inspiring qualities.
When the TV Licence spotted me as a non-payer, they send me a letter and I replied truthfully and they left me alone. However, either once a year or every 2 years, they write to me to confirm if I still don’t watch TV and reply the same way. They have never threaten me, or knocked on my door.
The day they abolish the licence fee will be the day everybody get’s a tax rise. They’ll just take it from people another way. It needs to be closed down.
This is a message to all the people who believe that they have to pay for this propoganda.
I come with great news, you don’t have to. That’s right, you don’t have. You have no contract with the BBC, that’s it.
Now you have stopped paying. Never open the door to anyone working for the BBC.
They have no right of access.
Don’t be afraid when they threaten you with court. As long as you don’t let them in you have nothing to fear, they have zero power.
How do I know this. Well I have stopped paying for this nonsense for over 12 years now.
Do not comply, do not pay for something your never asked for in the first place.
Remember there is no pandemic. BBC =lies and propoganda.
I read that yes, the licence will go, but it will be funded by the government, ie by the tax payer. Soon you will be paying for it whether you watch it or not! Do you really think the state will allow their number one propaganda tool to simply vanish?
@Storm Brewing, then it’s time to stop paying tax on your wages, as it’s unlawful extortion.
@Storm Brewing, They will be posting Council Tax notices next month in the local newspapers, so NOW is the time to rebut those notices by serving them with the required rebuttal Notice. Then when the council tax bill comes through your letter box you can remind them of your earlier notice of rebuttal.
A council tax rebellion is long overdue. Once they bring in their carbon taxes, it will almost become compulsory.
What are you not getting? If I get a shot and am protected, firstly, I won’t be passing what I am not getting (Covid) to others, secondly I am not filling in the hospitals and taking a bed that should go to cancer patients and other sufferers of other illnesses and most importantly, I am not lending my body to a virus to use as a lab to mutate itself into different forms and cause farther strain on the healthcare infrastructure. I am not surprised you don’t understand. If you don’t have the capacity to understand, there is nothing anyone…
I wouldn’t have a TV in the house, I hear enough shit from the mouths of people without inviting it into my life!
I stoped paying me Dog licence back in 1973,, sure it was bout 3 shillings ( 36p ) & It Was Monochrome……………
Fuck the BOLSHEVIK BULLSHITTING COMMISSION ~ Fuck the System
@Floki Decimalisation was in 1971 so it must have been before that, if you paid 3 shillings, which is 15p.
@Floki 36d not 36p L.S.D. Yes the old coins were allowed to be used but after 1971 they no longer had their L.S.D. meaning or identity = 2 shillings or the florin was then counted as a 10p coin. So there was no way your licence was quoted as three shillings – it would have been 15p.
@thetruthnotdoctrine,, Yes Decimalisation was in 1971 But the old money was allowed untill 1974 to give folk a chance to get used to the con…….
3 Shillings was 36p as a shilling was 12p ( what you’d describe now ) before 1971 & The Pound £1 was worth 240 pennies ( See the con )
After 1971 yes it was worth 5p
Dont know if links will work but some old book pages photocopy’d long time ago to add to the confusion
We’ll see if it happens. I will take more notice when they announce they are abolishing the vaxxes
Forget the licence fee – What should be abolished is the BBC itself. The BBC is one of the world’s most dangerous terrorist organisations, in addition employing paedophiles, actively encouraging child abuse, and they have no place in modern society. They should be stripped of their licence to broadcast. As everyone knows their are incapable of accurately reporting the news even in the city in which they are based, let alone elsewhere in the world.
The whole idea with the license fee was I thought to allow them to make independent, unbiased programs. If not obvious before, the one sided reporting of the last two years has shown that it does not provide that, so certainly should be abolished. Who would want to pay to be subjected to propaganda? Rather than allowing questioning of the covid narrative, they are spending money from the license fees rewriting the history of their part in the Savile story. Who would have predicted the $53 million the Gates foundation donated to BBC Media Action would have bought them some influence? Not Neil Ferguson, that’s for sure.
@Bauhaus “The whole idea with the license fee was I thought to allow them to make independent, unbiased programs.” If you think that the BBC’s one sided reporting has only been for the last two years, you’re either asleep and dreaming or you’re delusional. The Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation HAS ALWAYS BEEN A COMMUNIST SHIT HOLE from its inception with Jewish or Jewish controlled (shabbos goys) Commie sewer rats running it.
Why would i want to pay to watch shit and lies on television….
If i was a moron i would i guess…🤪
In Sweden It`s included in the tax now, viewers dropped so there you go 😡
@Peter.Loraine@protonmail.com Now is the time to stop paying income tax on wages as it is extortion and unlawful.
I think I’d rather wash my eyes out in bleach, supplied with a generous portion of salt and pepper rubbed in to compliment, then subject myself to even 5 more minutes of this propagandist dog dung – let alone my wallet… Cheers mate.
Don’t pay it, but make sure you don’t watch it either, ‘ Almost a third of women’s convictions are for not paying the TV licence fee, figures have revealed. Women are ten times more likely to be convicted for not paying the £157.50 annual fee than men – with growing numbers of women then being slapped with criminal records, Ministry of Justice data shows.’
@erinsade And you believe those figures?
Glad I am not transitioning,
Who really wants to be treated like a 2nd class citizen, or woman these days ?
Unless that woman was born a man, then they can do and say what they like.
It’s a funny old gain .
Mind you I stay at the bottom of the system as an English man.
They have been trying to bring in a broadcasting licence here in Ireland but they put it on hold brining in the property tax instead, also they failed with the water charges so far, the broadcasting licence will be €250 annually whether you have a TV or not, just another form of taxation but it won’t matter now as they have full control over the sheep who still have no clue what is going on.
Blacks Law Dictionary an ACT is not a Law they need your permission to Act as is a Mandate. If you tell a P.C. I understand in leagalease Blacks Law Dictionary to understand is to stand under their jurisdiction. Just tell them NO I DON’T UNDERSTAND I DO NOT COMPLY.
@PHILIP A Cosh, Better to tell them before they even open their mouths that you REBUT ANY ASSUMED OR PRESUMED JURISDICTION THAT THEY MIGHT THINK THAT THEY HAVE OVER YOU. Or if they do speak then ask them WHEN DID I GIVE YOU MY PERMISSION TO SPEAK TO ME?
The Ironic thing is here in Canada, the CBC is our BBC. Funny how the Letters are the same LOL
I don’t know anyone that still pays a TV licence.
I don’t watch the shite
Most people of your parents age Hugo are unfortunately conditioned
It’s sad because some elders do know the score with this nonsense going on
Have nice evening All
The long and short of this is that the TV licence is not going to go away unless we make it. As Hugo says don’t pay it if you don’t watch live TV etc. We have the power it is in our hands.
