TV Licence fee boycott ends with fine

May 12, 2010

Back in 2008, the Manualgate scandal took place.

This was when Russell Brand and Jonathan Ross lost their heads while making joke phone calls to Andrew Sachs.

Heads rolled and excuses were given, but for retired newspaper editor, Charles Moore, this was simply just too much and he subsequently decided not to pay his £142.50 TV Licence in protest at the actions of the BBC.

Instead of paying the licence fee he donated the cash to Help The Aged, despite TV Licensing informing him that he did not have permission to do that.

Mr Moore was found guilty of using a colour television without a licence at Hastings Magistrates Court, and was fined £262.
