infidelyork has brought up an important and good point with the T.V licensing. What right dose a big company like the BBC have to dip into your bank account to increase its profits. We’re giving the company directors the champagne lifestyle, they give their mate’s from Eton high paying jobs and we foot the bill. It craziness along the lines of…
If Ronald McDonald showed up on your doorstep and told you to cough up money because he wanted to build a new Drive Through restaurant in the local area. (You’d laugh.) If he said if you didn’t pay up he’d send round Grimace to rough you up and the Hamburglar to take your stuff. (You’d be on the floor howling in laughter. )
Absurd, yeah, but people fall for the BBC scam. Same kind of thing, but because they’re so wrapped up in the story they can’t see it for what it is. As a final thought, I liked that post card David illustrated, with the peacock showing its plume, and two females saying show us your willy. These people have no power unless you decide
to give them yours. By the way even if you have no T.V only a computer they still want your money. 150 pounds is just a bottle of champagne to these cretins, ask yourself what would you rather spend the money on?
One last point, I’m not against T.V I think it’s a wonderful invention, it’s just a crying shame its been hijacked by egos for a malicious cause.
