Quote of the Day

John Redwood is deeply irritated by the bullying tactics employed by the BBC when trying to extract licence fee money from those without a TV. The whole post is good, but I particularly liked this line.
Their inspectors will, of course, be wasting their time in my case, as I am most unlikely to be in any time they call, unless I am to experience the knock at the door at 2 am, to confirm that I am living in a version of the Soviet Union circa 1960.

Nice. I might pinch it...

And John Redwood would allow the TV licence inspectors inside why exactly?

TV licence goons don't actually have right of entry into private homes - you're well within your rights to deny them entry.
