Well, I haven't paid my water bill for two years, and don't intend to start now.
I'm intrigued, what does Mrs EUReferendum think about that? I only ask as I can't get away with things like that with my significant other. I've long not wanted to pay the license fee, but I'm not 'allowed'
I'd like to know more about what happens when you don't pay your water bill and also why. We do all use water and it must be paid for.
Secondly, as for the TV licence fee, we don't all watch the BBC, we can actually live our life without watching it, but still watch other channels. I object to paying for a service that I don't need or want. One that provides me with biased news and propaganda that I do not wish to financially support.
The BBC has pretty much gone over to digital now and could encrypt their channels, there by allowing only those that had paid the fee to have access to their programmes. But they didn't want that because they know that probably half of their conscripted customers would drop out of the viewing fee.
If they went back to unbiased news (FFS, Russia Today & Al-Jazeera provide more unbiased news than the BBC), decent drama productions, history, geographical and science programmes, then I would be more inclined to pay for it. As it is, I have no wish to pay strictly come dancing/X-Factor type rubbish.
Boiling Frog, tell Mrs.BF that you have made an executive decision and the licence fee is out the window. Mrs.Hog doesn't like it, but I haven't paid the fee in the last 3 years, which means I've saved £450 that I've haven't had to hand over to the Marxists.
I've had one visit, and I just told Mr.Crapita (BBC don't do their own dirty work) that I didn't want to answer his questions and self incriminate myself.
