Dumb laws

The TV licensing scheme in the UK is so stupid. Basically, everyone with a TV has to shell out £140 a year so the BBC can maintain free programming. Luckily, as we don't have a TV, we don't have to pay. I have a simple rule: don't make people pay for something they don't want. PBS in the States does it right. Fundraise, have commercials, or get off the air. Taxing your way into existence is bollocks.
