  1. Bear in mind a bailiff is a very rare event. It only happens after you have been convicted, and continually refused to pay the fine. Even then, there is another option, available to the Magistrates.
  2. I tried that. They weren't interested. The lady I spoke to read the back of one of the Threat-O-Grams, then said:- "It says here, we'd like to stop writing to you, so it you contact them they'll visit and then stop bothering you, so they're giving you a way out". Giving me "a way out"
  3. Once a month, every month Besides, since when has the law required the accused to prove their innocence?
  4. They don't sue anybody. TV Licence evasion is a criminal offence, hence alleged evaders are prosecuted, not sued.
  5. A SW application doesn't require PROOF, merely "reasonable grounds to believe". More importantly however, not talking to them means no risk of inadvertently giving information that could be used to fit you up. And before someone says "nobody has ever been fitted up", Capita/TVL employees have been convicted of falsifying evidence. So, don't give your name or other details, and exclude yourself from the edited version of the Electoral Register.
  6. They're not given any time to purchase a licence. If they admit to watching without a licence, a "Prosecution Statement" is taken immediately. It's usually around 5-6 months. This is because, information must be laid, within 6 months of the date of the alleged offence. Leaving it as long as possible, means the accused is less likely to be able to accurately recall what they said, hence less likely to put up a believable defence, under questioning in the Dock.
  7. Firstly, they no longer ask. Secondly, while they were obliged to ask, you weren't obliged to give it, although they could, of course, refuse the sale if you didn't. The alternative, from your POV, was to give false details.
  8. I haven't watched live TV (and hence not paid for a licence) for nearly 4 years, and I know people who have been Licence Free for a lot longer than that. He's wasting his time, because they won't believe him.
  9. That's what they say, but does the OP have it in writing?
  10. That doesn't prove you didn't have Freeview.
