As most of us in the lower orders expect, with the right connections you can get away with just about anything, which seems the case with Charles Moore, the former editor the Daily Telegraph who earlier announced last year he would not be paying his TV licensing fee, as he objected to the conduct of BBC’s Jonathan Ross, as I did myself for amongst other things abusing Andrew Sachs.
Not having gone to Eton, unlike Mr Moore and having a sense of proportion I have decided that since I can just about afford the fee, and that the BBC keeps me informed and entertained etc despite having reservations about Ross its right to continue to pay up.
Having read this article by Charles Moore on Ross’s decision to quit the BBC, he has decide to continue to break the law and refuse to pay the license fee as per this quote “Ross is leaving the BBC in July this year, so at that point, but not before, I shall renew. It will be amusing to see if the enforcement bureaucracy pays any attention to what is happening, or just plugs on, chasing me for my “year out”.
Charles Moore, as far as I’m concerned is exhibiting the arrogance typical of this country’s public school educated toffs and will probably get away with avoiding TV licensing fee unlike working people who’d almost certainly have been fined by now.
