I know the Crown Dependencies have a different relationship with the BBC than the UK and we could make our own decision.
The fact that those receiving benefits will continue to get a licence free is actually discrimination. It discriminates between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’ and a lot of us in the ‘have nots’ have struggled to keep paying their way.
So, on 1 January 2021, what am I to do? If I do not pay I will be a criminal. If I ended up in prison it would be a greater cost than the licence.
If I had the money I would take legal advice but then, of course, if I had the money I would be able to afford to pay.
Any pension increase is insufficient to cover the cost of this licence. What can I do?
