Watch: Furious pensioner likens BBC TV licence fee to ‘extortion’

A furious 79-year old lady called Tom Swarbrick at LBC Radio on Thursday asking why does she have to pay for a BBC TV licence when she does not watch the BBC.

She said if you get a free newspaper you don’t have to pay for another on if you do not want to read it.

With the blood pumping she told LBC, “There is free TV. ITV and Channel 5 are completely free. Why do we have to pay for the BBC if we don’t want it?

“And we go to jail if we don’t pay. Isn’t that extortion?”

Swarbrick told her that you pay for the content you get, she responded, “I don’t want that. I want free ITV, that suits me fine.

“I don’t want to pay for anything else. Why am I obliged to?

“You don’t buy the Daily Telegraph and have to pay for the Daily Mirror, do you? This is absurd.”
