    TV license lost



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Most D-Day veterans the prime minister lauded last week will lose their free TV licenses when 2.9 million over-75s are forced to pay £154.50.
    ( ... and of course every other person over 75! )

    Honoured for one day only??

    Yet another kick in the gut for some of our most vulnerable citizens.

    All the political parties are a joke just now, but if the conservatives are re-elected at the next general election then everyone who votes for them will deserve to go to hell in a handcart for supporting one of the most vile, out of control governments I've ever seen in my lifetime.

    I agree but shudder to think what JC would do because he doesn't seem to have any backbone either. That leaves the Greens, LibDems or Brexit. I think I'll just stick my head in the sand.

    Well they do need to do something so they can keep paying Jeremy Vine and the likes obscene amounts of money.
    The BBC has published the latest list of its highest-paid stars later as part of its annual report.
    Some stars have had pay increases, while others have dropped down the list - although in many cases, such as with Claudia Winkleman, this is a result of some programmes being produced by BBC Studios, which is now considered a commercial entity and so no longer counted.


    Here's the full list of those earning more than £150,000 in 2017-18:
    Gary Lineker - £1,750,000-£1,759,999

    Chris Evans - £1,660,000-£1,669,999

    Do not forget the above are not true figures as the do not take into account programs made by BBC Studios such as Strictly. etc. And the funding and cover up of such as Jimmy Savile, it shouldn't be BBCorporation but Corruption. In my opinion.

    Whatever anyone feels about this, one thing has puzzled me all day long. I kept hearing this morning that it 'costs' the Government (from next year, the BBC) £745 million a year to exempt the over 75s from licence fees. The BBC say it would gobble up half their budget and they'd have to make swingeing cuts if the scheme continued. OK... so how come it costs anyone anything at all to not supply something?

    Ah wait... I suspect they're not really talking costs at all but rather missed opportunities for more revenue/income/profit - right?

    There are a lot of very well off pensioners about, and this is going to be means tested anyway.

    And all pensioners do is watch tv, so they should pay for it lol.

    Technically they can (could) prove you were watching TV . Not so easy in a block of flats but a row of bungalows , easy-peasy .
