  1. Yep, I got the very same letter. I will reply to this with the next letter from the CAG templates and enclose another copy of my list of charges.
  2. Take your pick! We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Scrap the BBC licence fee. We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Stop the expansion of the BBC and return the TV license fee to a sensile amount. We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to For the BBC to be commercially funded. We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Make all BBC Channels Pay Per View. We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Find some other means of supporting the BBC besides the License fee. Perhaps the BBC could run the lottery something they would be very good at. We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Replace TV licence revenue with advertising revenue. We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Scrap the tv licence.
  3. I've got to say, I'm surprised by the responses to this post and some of the arguments that support the TV license are great. However, I think some of you are missing the point which is simply the fact that people who don't want the BBC should not have to pay for it. If people want to pay the £131 then it should be an optional subscription. And for those of you who say it's peanuts....it ain't peanuts for everyone, an extra £131 can be a big deal for some folks, does that mean they don't have the right to be able to watch other channels which are free??
  4. ...this is TV we're talking about. Not quite as necessary as education or healthcare, etc. Oh and people who don't drive...still use roads!
  5. Well thanks to everyone so far for their comments. Some of the feedback has been great, I guess I just simply find it difficult to part with my money for a service I just don't use. The licensing fee has been in force for so long now that people just seem to accept it as the norm and don't question it.
  6. Fair enough, if people choose to pay £50 a month for Sky then that's their choice. The point I'm gettin at is that the BBC force people to pay. We don't have a choice and that's what wrong about it. I rarely watch TV and I aint forking out money for a plasma TV with no tuner. There should be TV sets that are simply not capable of picking up BBC channels, I would buy one of those! Seriously though, there are some things in life that we should be forced to pay, e.g. tax, NI, etc....but not for TV. The BBC should be looking at alternative ways to fund their business whether they provide a good service or not. People should have a choice!
  7. I have created a petition online with No.10 Downing Street. Once approved I will add the link here.
  8. Hi, My first post to the Consumer Action Group, what a great site! My concern is with BBC Television licenses....every year they hike up the prices and people with televisions are FORCED to pay. Personally I think it is wrong as there are people out there like myself who never even watch BBC channels (no, i don't like Eastenders!), so what gives them the right to take £131.50 from us each year? On top of that, how do they justify such a large amount of money? So they can send Jeremy Clarkson to America to paint a car and drive around like an idiot? What are people views on this and what can we do to challenge this? F.
