GUEST,The black belt caterpillar wrestler BS: No Telly? (61* d) RE: BS: No Telly? 16 Jan 07

Some years ago we realised that we had not switched the TV on for at least 5 weeks, so got rid of it and stopped having to pay the licence fee.
Several of our folky friends in Lancaster don't have one either. There's too much to do here to have time to watch it.

However, the TV licencing authority sends us very abusive letters and there is no way of shutting them up without expenditure on our part. It would take at least three letters to them on separate occasions to escalate any complaint from us about the wording of their letters to reach someone high enough up the management to do anything about it!
There does not seem to be any ombudsman or equivalent to complain to about their activities.
