Following a prolonged correspondence with the bullies at TV Licensing, I decided to buy a television license. Surely that would satisfy them? Apparently not. Behold my fourth letter to this company. Hopefully it will be my last.
"Further to your letter dated October 2004, I resent the accusation that I am using a television illegally. A quick look at your records would show that I do indeed have a license and that would have solved your problem, but that would be too simple, wouldn’t it?
Your office has hounded me relentlessly ever since I moved into student accommodation. Last year I was in receipt of one heavy handed reminder after another simply because I chose not to buy a television.
I wrote repeatedly asking you to leave me alone, as did my Member of Parliament. Needless to say you ignored both requests. So I finally bought a license in the hope that you might stop pestering me.
Wishful thinking. This morning I received yet another notice from you threatening a visit by your ‘officers’. Exactly how many licenses do I have to buy in order for you to stop writing?!
Please find enclosed previous correspondence sent to your office. Note my reference to the Malicious Communications Act (1988) which makes sending threats by post an offence. If you want to catch criminals, I suggest you stop looking for unlicensed televisions and look closer to home!
I would apologise for the tone of this letter but then again it seems rather tame in comparison to yours
