If they are working for the BBC as an agent then the rules are set by the BBC more BS by an organisation losing viewer fast than the titanic went down

I asked:
"What are the policies the BBC Licence Fee Unit have in place for the following incident."
I went on:
"How are they implemented, policed and enforced by the BBC Licence Fee Unit on TV Licensing contractor Capita."

The first part got a barely adequate response. The second part got no response at all. In essence, the BBC responded to a FoI request I did not lodge.
I cannot say that I am in any way surprised. The BBC have indulged in this disgusting and evasive behaviour before with me and with many others. Contrary to BBC "save the TV licence fee" groupthink, such arrogance and conceit cuts no ice with increasing numbers of people in the UK and does not in any way legitimise the BBC TV licence fee and its administration and enforcement.
