If you don’t want to subsidise Emily Maitlis' £370K salary tell the bullying BBC enforcers you won’t pay their TV licence
If you plan to buy either car or home insurance I wonder if you might look at my small price comparison site A Spokesman Said as we earn a little commission from each sale which helps fund the research and editorial costs of running the site. It has the same offer as the big ones like Go Compare. Thank you.

The staggeringly average Emily Maitlis makes £370,000-a-year for a four night week fronting the staggeringly boring Newsnight which nobody watches because a) she’s on it and b) because she’s on it.
You should remember that number. You will be needing it as an argument when the army of enforcers start knocking on the door down your way this month demanding you pay £159 for the previously free BBC TV licence.
And if you don’t pay? It’s either a £1,000 fine or the ultimate threat of jail.

How did we ever get into the position of being forced to pay to watch television with the threat of prison if we didn’t. Let’s just shut the BBC down and let the viewer decide what entertainment they want to pay for.
I am happy to cough up for Sky, Netflix, Amazon music and Amazon Prime. I subscribe to the Times app and am on the verge of taking the Guardian app.
I am unhappy at not being given the option to either pay or not pay for the BBC. Especially since I don’t approve of my money contributing towards Gary Lineker’s £1.36million for fronting a video goals show every Saturday night.

If you are over 75 and may not have paid for the BBC TV licence there will be a ring on the bell any day now from people masquerading as “customer care” personnel. In fact that they are debt collectors with a mission to track down 250,000 over 75s who have yet to pay.
These doorstep attacks follow the scrapping of the free license for the over-752 last August. Five million were affected with one in ten having paid but 260,000 have said get stuffed, either because they object to the content or because they vulnerable, live alone or are surviving on incomes of less than £180-a-week.
My advice is to tell them to get stuffed and let them do their worst.
If you feel as strongly as I do about taking a stand why not email [email protected] as he is running a campaign on the subject. Good luck.
PS: So just to mention again but if you plan to buy either car or home insurance I wonder if you might look at my small price comparison site A Spokesman Said as we earn a little commission from each sale which helps fund the research and editorial costs of running the site.
