Rip Off Britain

Recommended Posts

I'm actually embarassed that this shallow, fact dodging, menopausal has-been consumer championing pile of toss is classed as prime time TV on the bbc.

Ohhhhh look, they're charging £XX for some glasses when you can buy them on t'internet for £X "RIP OFF BRITAIN"

Oh poor me, I'm so dumb I signed a legally binding contract agreeing to pay an exit fee of 12,5% (he probably wouldn't have minded had his property not balooned so much in value. Thick and greedy) "RIP OFF BRITAIN".

No, not RIP OFF BRITAIN. It's RIP ME OFF, I'M BRITISH AND TOO STUPID TO THINK FOR MYSELF AND THEREFORE EASY PREY.

i wish people would wise up, take time to read contracts, search the full market for cheaper alternatives and do proper research before parting with their cash. if they did this they wouldn't have to offend me with shit programs like that.

The only true RIP OFF in BRITAIN is the sodding licence fee.

Yes, the biggest rip-off in Britain is that you are required to have a very expensive licence to own one particular piece of domestic electronic equipment in order that a small group of people can earn a King's Ransom, regardless of how little you use this apparatus.

Jonathon Ross/ Steve Wright/ Attenborough etc should be called into the office on Monday and told that their new salary is £30,000 a year and if they don't like it then they can sod off and drive a fork-lift truck for a living.

Licensed to spend: BBC trio splash out £12,650 on cabs in three months (that's 87 licence fees)
By Paul Revoir and Liz Thomas
Last updated at 1:03 AM on 21st April 2010
Three BBC executives spent an extraordinary £137 a day on taxis - to allow them to make phone calls in private.
The bosses, who all earn six-figure salaries, racked up more than £12,000 in cab claims in just three months.
This included a total of £4,862 claimed in fares by director of vision Jana Bennett.

Umm, its only required if you have a device installed or used to recieve television broadcasts when or essentially when they are being made. We've got 3 tv (had 2 that we are hacked off with but to tight to though away and the family thought "we don't watch tv" translated as "we don't have a tv" :( ) and are currently being harrassed by tv licensing extortionists. They've started showing up at the door now so I've composed a wee note for when we're actually in telling them we're revoking thier implied right of access and that we regard thier letters as harrassment and to desist. I'll have the camera at the ready to capture the fecker when they refuse to sign for it to be used as evidence when we take them to court over it.

Cant believe people would watch what amounts to a lobotomy (think britains not got talent, pop disaster, lll etc) and find it amusing when we say to people that we don't watch ever, the looks of incredulity are funny.

Edit for spelling and , we would tell them we dont watch it but they still treat you like you do and thier letters started off agressive and deteriorated form there

Taxation, cost of housing\transport = rip off Britain. Seeing as you're mandated to pay the first and need the other two in some form or another, there's no easy way to deal with it.

And having lost out once the stupid bugger signed up for it again, and then started complaining!

If more people walked away from these deals the seller wouldn't be able to include them in the contract.

I have just dropped out of a purchase because the maintenenace fund isn't being run poperly and I bet that I am seen as the akward customer who wouldn't just "shrug and sign it".
