Originally BBC had us pay tv licenses to view BBC, then the license covered viewing anything on TV. Also in the beginning the tv license was deemed necessary because BBC did not advertise. However, NOW they have so many productions that not only tout the products but have the products in full view on screen... This is marketing tactics which constitutes Advertising.
Firstly Why do we still have to pay for a tv license? Secondly, why couldn't the elderly already getting the free tv license be allowed to keep that deal? Thirdly as has been mentioned above by others; enprisoning the pensioners for non payment of the tv license will put many of them into a condition of life than some of the sheltered housing and cheap nursing homes they currently suffer in.
It has been jokingly mentioned on social media that its cheaper, cleaner, and easier to live in jail than to survive on a meager pension with so many payments for nothing, like council taxes and tv license that chip out of a pensioners funds. Wait till you get old and crabbie, see if you like the way the younger generation are treating you then. Any laws made and then revoked gives the next generation coming up behind you the idea to do the same. Watch out what they will create for you to suffer from...
