It Not A Broadcasting Licence Fee. It’s A Screen Viewing Tax

Share With Your Friends

Some of you may be old enough to remember this, if not ask your parents or grand parents. There was a tine in this country when we had black and white and colour televisions. The advertisement in post offices was “If you have a colour T.V Set you must have a colour licence”

Now it all smart tv’s and phones. Our government derided to create a broadcasting licence. (A Smart Screen Viewing Tax). So now we will have to pay a tax on looking at You Tube or view videos on social media platforms. Believe it or not if you video chat with your friends or family on What’s App, Facebook Messenger, Instagram or Twitter you are broadcasting or receiving a broadcast.

The government are reported to be recruiting a team  called SMART ALECS to call to your place of residence or even accost you on the street
