They can do what they like with my info. I have been court 8 or 9 times for not paying and never ever will. I would rather go to jail as our jails are only butlins in disguise anyway. (yes, I have been before lol)The sooner this rip off is abolished the better. My US pals cannot fathom how and why we have it. None believe me until I show them evidence lol Good luck with this Sir

Jamie if you've been to court 8 or 9 times I would have thought you'd have learned not to communicate with the BBC.

I've never paid the BBC & never been to court so please stop taking John Casey's advice on the fake Page using our name

Lol can just picture sau Paulo's face fill with rage, steam coming out his ears at the progress the tvl resistance Facebook page has made. How's your Facebook page doing sau?..snigger B-)

There is only one 'TV Licence Resistance'. As you know John Casey's illegal copy is just helping the BBC by giving out bad info. A prime example of this is telling people to cancel direct debits but not the BBC TV Licence itself

This will be why you are pretending to be someone you aren't, I know you aren't Peter Jones and the admin can check

Yes this Casey is either a Vexacious clot, or more likely works for the BBC/Capita to entrap folks that do not wish to contribute to the BBC's gravy train by advising the opposite of what is good advice:, NO communication at all with the BBC - is the best advice from all of us who "Genuinly" oppose the BBC & wish to see it either abolished, or go voluntry subscription - either will do ;)

You seem to spell ok but your ability to read seems diminished.
Maybe have someone read our advice guide to you. Oh and tell me this. If its STRICTLY no contact, how on earth do people on payment schemes cancel???

Howabout you get off your high horse and accept that i have created a platform which has not only cost the BBC millions but has raised awareness of licence fee resistance across the country to an unprecedented level. If your truly in support of resistance, as you say you are, maybe you can take off your 'im the king of the castle' hat and welcome any pressure or resistance groups.

If you feel i have 'stole your thunder' in anyway rest assured im not after any glory. You may keep any glorification you wish.

You people who maintain a campaign of discredit against the active resistance are a virus to the cause. Nearly as low as capita themselves. You feed scepticism and doubt to the public.

So heres my advice for you, open your eyes,grow up and work harder on bringing people together and unification of the public and maybe we can beat the fee.

A few hundred on a forum will not be noticeable to the bbc gravy train, however hundreds of thousands will eventually cripple it.

So, you would agree that PR Capita/BBC employees/supporters, such as identities: Mikw, Mossy & quite a few more similar usernames who regularly post 24/7 on Digital spy, sing a similar song to yourself: which is: "get in touch, communicate, phone etc Tv licencing, & tell them you do not need a licence, withdraw presumed access" all have a similar theme to your message - which is the total oppposite of the true TVLR's advice of: "No or minimal communication with BBC/Capita" - which has worked well for many folks, to reduce the Harrassment to a minimum.

As for writing "Vexatious" FOI requests to the BBC, yes - in theory it might be costing the BBC a £ or two, but not if they are inside job requests, & are expected, perhaps written by the same BBC dept. They will also give the BBC the excuse to treat other "Genuine" FOI requests as also being "Vexatious" & in the longer term, give the BBC a good excuse to avoid answering FOI requests at all. There are often long delays now!

You claim to be having a bigger impact - so has the BBC's 5% evasion figure changed since you have launched "Your" campagn?

I believe since Vince Cable & co (rightly) stopped "Dealer notification" TVL sales have dropped like a stone & Capita's only answer to get the sales back up, was to create a Miss-information message, rather like the "Black propaganda" that came from "The biggest aspidistra in the world" used against the Nazi's in WW2.

You may of course be 100% genuine, if so please explain the logic behind your methods...getting more "Likes" than another website, is not a correct answer by the way........

John Casey your known for being a BBC stooge so you can spin all you like this wont change anything. I’m tired of people coming to be who’ve ended up in court after listening to you, it’s beyond a joke.

Oh our site has far more reach than your Facebook Page that has one off ‘likes’ and hardly any movement because of the one off ‘likes’ so perhaps you should think before swyping on that mobile.

Oh and are you still collecting names and addresses with the tshirts and stickers?

To clarify the myth and to prevent you creating anymore of a fantasy than you already seem to have created i will happily provide you 'proof' that our message mirrors that of every other resistance group.

Yes we actively encourage EVERYONE to resist wherein tvlr works within the 'law'. In that respect we differ but that is all.

So to that end i invite you to find me on Facebook, my personal page, or comment on a recent status from the active resistance so i can open a private conversation with you.

I recently gave a well respected tvlr member full access to the active resistance and all the private inbox mail including admin chat etc.... they were impressed with what we do and were quite happy to leave us well alone.

I invite to you the same option however i will screenshot pms etc rather than give u access as i had trust in the member outlined above and i have no idea who you are.

Sao Paulo i will no longer grace your 'alias' with any replys. You feel to comfortable concealing your identity and i simply dont see what you have to hide.

J.Jones you can take me up on that invitation if you wish or ask your most respected member for clarification.

When you find out how ridiculously wrong you have been, i don't require any apology. I just find it amazing that the rantings of an alias have actually sunk in!! As they say, you throw enough shit, some sticks!!
P.s never been on digital spy in my life.....

Sao, 28,000+ currently engaged with the page is the true figure of weekly contact to our fb page. I can surely provide any proof.

J.jones lastly, if you wish to retain a shred of credibility i suggest you accept my invitation.

Ah -ha, now the true face of Capita starts to show - wants to Know the true identities of Sao Paulo & J Jones...

Lots of words, but no explanation why you think communication with Capita/TVL is a good thing......

Sorry, No.

John Casey said "Yes we actively encourage EVERYONE to resist wherein tvlr works within the 'law'. In that respect we differ but that is all"

YOU go after those people for Capita PLC who you work for and you've given them so many lies its unreal which is why you keep "advice" to PM.

You want innocent people setup

J. Jones left an annotation ()

Yes, his/Capita's activity is an Aspidistra copy.....

Just as the Germans were fooled, so are some people who may be taken in by the "False resistance" advice, given by J Casey & his facebook page.

I suggest Capita, that this facebook page is removed & Mr Casey is never heard of again......

There ARE cleaner ways to fight a war.

So you didn't ask your trusted member???

So you dont want proof?

To be fair they guys on your forum who are worth anything have my trust already and i theres. They have seen the proof.

So if you dont want proof of what we do you must be enjoying your fantasy too much and your frightened of looking like fools when proved wrong.

How can someone prove their innocence (not that i really care) if your not willing to accept an invitation to see our work??

Look the offers open and when your proved wrong there will be no hard feelings.
Sao, I'd love to meet up with you. I'll be in Manchester in a few weeks, would be nice to meet my stalker!!!

J. Jones left an annotation ()

The proof of the pudding, is in your actions - encouraging folks who don't know any better to Contact Capita & take out WOIRA - thus making themselves Targets for increased attention, shows your intentions are far from the correct ones.

Also your making some assumptions that I am even a member of a certain site you believe I belong to.
I may have visited your Facebook page, followed your duff advice & am angry with you because of the increased Capita Harrasment & door-knocking.

So regarding the site that you think I am a member of, let's hear the usernames of these "Trusted" members, who you believe you have won over to your way of thinking?

John Casey its funny that you mention the forum as we know you monitor it to get information, I remember when you joined admitting you are a newb and were seen off by the other members because you claimed to be us on Facebook. For some strange reason you seem obsessed with us and giving people bad advice which helps Capita/BBC

J. Jones left an annotation ()

Yes, Sao Paulo - there is a handy four letter word that very accurately describes the substance that John Casey is utterly full of........

Along with the rest of the BBC/Capita Committee that are dictating these annotations. Your cover is well & truly blown, The daily mail is now very interested in your "Aspidistra activities"
