We already don't have one but I'm intrigued. What are we protesting?

BeyondThePage Sat 13-Jan-18 13:44:40

what is the protest?

Haven't had a license for years. Glad to not be funding that cesspit.

I’m very actively considering this, especially after John Humphrey’s antics this week. The BBC have been happy to suspend any female presenters talking about pay disparity, but he’s allowed to very clearly take the piss & continue.

A woman in every household?

WTAF?

Imo it's cutting off your nose to spite your face. I like watching the telly! How much the people on the telly earn isn't my problem.

Theres a women in every household.

Single dad to two boys here, stag only.

I don't have a TV licence though if it helps 😂

This is because of the gender pay gap yes? I agree it’s disgusting. I also think there is likely to be specific breaches of the Equal Pay Act which is absolutely unforgivable.

I’m not boycotting though. We need the BBC because the work produced is of tremdous value. They need to get their house in order but there are better ways to do this than a boycott.

Are we saying that we need to stop those horrid men employing better agents than women?

the gender pay gap is disgusting, but it is not happening in a vacuum

And you think getting a criminal record is somehow productive?

Didntcomeheretofuckspiders Sat 13-Jan-18 13:57:20

We’ve just sent off the form to say we don’t need one anyway! No tv, never watch anything live on iPlayer... although I’d like to know how they prove that!

Bloomed Sat 13-Jan-18 13:57:35

I will!

IvorBiggun Sat 13-Jan-18 13:59:49

It’s nothing to do with agents. The corporation pays the bill so they are responsible in ensuring pay is fair.

CuriousaboutSamphire Sat 13-Jan-18 13:59:49

No!

Mainly because the license fee is not imposed to pay for the BBC but is a license to watch live streamed tv.

We need a more focussed way to boycott the BBC... and a different way of making our anger known!

No, I enjoy watching TV and don’t want to get a criminal record.

I’m also in a contract with Sky so I’m not wasting money something I can’t watch

Think you would bebetter saying, an adult in every household. Males can hold the same view as a female and agree with them- it's possible.

rightsaidfrederickII Sat 13-Jan-18 14:12:38

I'd cancel my TV licence if I had one blush
