That explains the brainwashing!
I hope you pay your licence fee.
LOL, we don't know any better.
I'm almost 75 so I will be exempt from a fee. I'm sure Vodaphone pays the Tax Office from my monthly fee.
In the 60s we had free ITV, BBC, Thames, etc. because we were on the border. And it was all FREE. However, the folk across the border have to pay the fee because they are loyal British subjects. It's only fair.
There's a BBC channel 22 with arty stuff but it is above my head, I think its is for the elites.
