TV Licensing informs me that they cannot answer my query and recommended that I email this address. Whilst I doubt that you will be able to - or willing to - answer my question.
I would like to know what percentage of the TV Licences that I have been forced to buy in the last 30 years have been spent on programming and what percentage was spent on providing premises and opportunity for activities and behaviour that I do not approve of. Given recent revelations, I no longer have faith in the BBC and fail to see why I should be FORCED to support such a disreputable organisation.
Before you lecture me about NOT having a license, check your records.
However, what would you do if I refused to pay? Just out of curiosity. Would you take me to court and be prepared to answer this question in court?
