BBC must stop demanding TV Licence money

Totally agree with ‘Brian M’ on his comments on this |prehistoric situation we have in this country, where you pay for something you neither want nor use (i.e. the BBC and the TV Licence).

It's the only TV, radio broadcasting system, or media outlet which if you don't subscribe to, you'll be threatened with prosecution.

All other broadcasting systems and media outlets are out there in the market place and stand or fall on their own merits.

I'm not impressed when when the BBC says it gives value for money.

They can talk the talk, but can they walk the walk?

I suggest they become commercial or go for voluntary subscription.

Let the people decide if they want to pay £145.50 on something they don't use.

In the year 2012, it's called freedom of choice!
