      Period.

      That's my standpoint because it guarantees something for everyone.
      Taxes should never have been wasted like that ,you want you pay for it comrade !
      A hundred million dead & still socialism/communism is the answer

      The majority of the countries in the Soviet Union didn't think so. The only true socialists/communists are in China or North Korea, if you want to live there you are welcome to it.

      I do object to their vision of the future if I have it right, I have no desire to watch the dross that is currently broadcast, and as such can opt out of the TV license by making sure my TV is not able to receive TV at time it is broadcast, to be honest I have no interest in TV full stop, but under this new proposed system I would be expected to contribute, due to the fact as I have computers and bb I maybe watching catch up, so no I don't want to pay for something, I have no interest in or any intentions of using, switch it to a pay per view service and then allow the people who want it to pay for it, though I feel a few highly paid presenters and executives, will need directing to the local job centre.
