  • Nick Ferrari runs through what the BBC licence fee pays for in a hilarious rant following the corporation's decision to charge over-75s.

    The BBC announced over-75s will have to pay for the licence fee, with exclusions only for those on Pension Credit.

    But after reading through today’s TV listings, Nick Ferrari suggested some form of advertising wouldn't be the end of the world.

    Who supplies the BBC with their licences to operate their business? It has got to be the government, so why doesn't the government tell the BBC to carry on giving the 75 year old their FREE TV licence, (better still, scrub the TV licence altogether) or face losing their own licences to stay in business.

    Ferrari is correct, you are just paying for the news and repeats. What would they do without the repeats?

    I don't have a television licence, not had one for 9 years, I listen to the radio and watch YouTube, I have YouTube connected to my smart tv, I don't require a licence for any of those things, yes, I receive monthly threatening letters, but they get binned, I've also had two visits from their, officer's, ( sales people, not officer's) they got completely ignored, I do not open the door to strangers, if your legally licence free, you have no legal obligation to speak or communicate with BBC/capita, just adopt the no contact rule, totally ignore these people, and they cannot do anything to you, zero communication is the key, don't return the letters and don't engage with strangers on the doorstep, it's really very simple, zero contact and ignore, ignore and ignore👍

    The BBC don't offer anything worth the £155 pounds that they charge. There's nothing worth watching on the BBC. At the least they should give us the option of subscription. Those that want to watch can subscribe. You don't get virgin or sky sending people down your house.

    BBC is no longer fit for purpose and should be abandoned. It is one of the biggest injustices in UK. Compulsory payment for a company that repeats many bad programs. It is politically biased and is basically an attempted brainwashing chanel.
    In these days the compulsory funding of a politically biased TV company should not be accepted. Particularly when the contract payments to many "presenters" are offensive and driving an unrealistic market, where the fees paid to some far out weight the value of the talent.
