TV Licence (new “broadcasting charge”) (66)

Sep 20, 2016 3:42 PM CST TV Licence (new “broadcasting charge”)
JJ

I beg to differ, I have a tv I use as a monitor and like I said the kids use it to play wii.

Nobody in my house wants any of the shit services that are offered in this case.
and comparing it to parking is silly as you dont have to pay for parking if you dont park a car.

and compairing it to weighing bins is even more silly because thats the exact argument I am making..
Viewing should be charged by what you watch. If you watch nothing you should pay nothing. cheers
Like starofwars said why should we pay for you to have a fix brainwashing propaganda cheers

StarOfWars: That's a great idea. Why should we pay for what we don't want? And if the service/channel isn't up to much, e.g., RTE, then they will go out of business because nobody will fund their propaganda ''programming''.

It's hard to understand that in this day and age people are still watching the inane RTE morons talking shit and worse still buying newspapers!!!!


Well said thumbs up
privatise RTE and see how long they last, 6 months if lucky.

But wait if its privatised will they show all the shite about how our politicians are a great bunch doing their bit for the little people and those sinister fringe terrorist water protesters deserve to be threatened by the "sierra topaz rangers" laugh

Ehhh NO !

I'd make the over 60s pay double.

They watch it more and have more disposable income

Feck off you, and stop adding 6 years to my age! very mad


Do I agree that it has to be paid for? Sure I do.

Do I agree with the cost of running it, and the exorbitant salaries being paid? No I don't.

They are charging people to watch overpaid, not very talented individuals, and constant re-runs, and at the same time getting a hefty income from advertising which we also have to pay to watch.

Something wrong there.

They don't call it the "State Broadcaster" for nothing. The State pays it's wages and gives it the best broadcasting licence in the country so they will always big up the State and demonise anyone who is against the State.

johnjjm,
Yeah from someone born in an age where it was thought ok and acceptable for people to be screwed by the state and church together Im not surprised you ave that opinion.
And just because you have youtube and a 48 inch tv does not mean you are modernised, try update your mindset,

I'm afraid modern people actually have the balls to question authority and corruption.

"Payup and look happy,"
Sounds like something a pedo priest would say to an alter boy ! Bud.

And just out of interest Who does it keep in jobs. Its all orchestrated from an post who make 12 million profit from it.
As for tax I think 25% vat on every thing we buy should be well enough as well as income tax and property and land tax to run this country if the greedy 1-2% were not robbing it all.

Feck off you, and stop adding 6 years to my age! Do I agree that it has to be paid for? Sure I do.

Why Molly, Give us a reason why.

They didnt make the tv.
They only send out a signal that the TV can interpret.
So if you dont want the signal why pay. dunno

Its actually less justifiable than water rates which pay for infrastructure.
So you should support them to !

If you use it, pay for it. Which is what I said at the beginning, I favour a pay per view system.

I find the word 'pay' problematic with regard to these "taxes/charges/licenses" because we don't 'pay', they are stolen.

By that I mean that we are aware that a failure to 'pay' will result in a court case and possible kidnapping into a cage for some time. Resisting that will lead to a confrontation with big men in blue costumes and that WILL result in bodily injury or worse.

When money is taken from us by coercive force and threats that is not a 'payment' but theft

JJ who's arguing ,
All I'm doing is expressing an opinion supported by facts.
Is that how your generation brought about change.
Buy telling the other cheeky young pups to shut up to get a bit of cop on while you impose your agenda. Shame you don't understand that politics is about discourse.

I cant debate those points. They seem both true and fair enough.

I'm not so sure about that. There was once a great culture of questioning authority in Europe up until about the 19th century when they invented the idea of a voting democracy and people became convinced that to improve their lives all they had to do was elect a different master and all would be well. For the last 100 years and more the superstition that we couldn't build roads, schools, hospitals, look after the poor, protect ourselves from bad people and all the other stuff we believe we need a state to do for us has taken hold like a cancer. The young seem too interested in their iPhones and Branjelia to care about being free of authoritarian collectivist bullies, let alone fighting against them.

I think the world is entering a new dark age of state control that Orwell couldn't have dreamed up in his worst nightmare. They will squeeze and squeeze us until we pop. You can't warn people.
