  1. You can! You don't need a licence if you don't use any of these devices to watch or record television programmes as they're being shown on TV - for example, if you use your TV only to watch DVDs or play video games, or you only watch programmes on your computer after they have been shown on TV. Well if you don't buy food, you err...die. So you are forced really, aren't you? Keep up. Force? You must hate being forced to pay your taxes for the upkeep of the roads etc. When you are sick, do you whine about being forced to pay for the NHS? Learn to construct intelligent arguments please.
  2. Given the impact that piracy has had on the music industry, I wouldn't be so sure.
  3. Choose to eat food? Dear lord - that takes some reasoning! You can choose not have a TV and therefore not pay for a TV licence. You can't opt out of eating, or indeed buying goods to live. So you're somewhat tied into paying for the ITV network via advertising costs . Tres simple....
  4. Grief - this is so simple a child could grasp it. So here is a simple analogy: Little old lady stops paying for her TV Licence as she no longer watches TV. However she continues to pay for ITV and Sky. How? Advertising budgets! Advertising does not come for free. And businesses don't have advertisement budgets from thin air. These budgets are built into the price of goods that she pays when she goes to Tesco's etc. So a % of her bill goes to ITV and Sky and other advertisers, regardless of whether she has a TV. So she can opt out of BBC but can't of ITV or Sky. Great eh? There's no such thing as a free lunch. Someone, somewhere, sometime, somehow pays...
  5. News Corporation (and ITV) are not choices. BBC most certainly is. No such thing as a free lunch remember...

    Dow Rises 6.5%

    Can anyone post the link to the thread which talked about a big drop in April and beyond? Something about a guy who wrote about 8 year cycles I think. And is in jail these days! I've looked but can't find it. Cheers.
  12. Is this the month when the media finally woke up and realised that there is something wrong with the world? Murdoch sent out an comm to his staff on Monday night saying: Drudge Report Also it's in the below after more Mail wail on the bail out (in the final section) Daily Mail Just sometimes want to jump in a TARDIS and see what the world looks like come Dec 31st!

    More Bear Food

    Jim Sinclair Is he worth listening to? Well he has been around for some time, and he is not trying to sell anything via his website etc. Lots of bearish sentiment around for the near future as far as I can see...
