What are TV Licence Goons?

Of course, we are not referring to the BBC Goons who had their own radio show back in the 50's. After all, they were respectable comedians. In this case, we refer to the Goons as those idiots who come to your door selling TV Licences. Indeed, that's all they are, sales people who have no authority whatsoever.

However, they will make it look like they have authority. But, they are only there for two reasons. Firstly, they want to gather as much information about you as possible. Secondly, they want you to buy a television licence so they can take their £20 commission.

Don't Communicate With A Goon!

In short, we recommend that you DO NOT SPEAK TO THEM. This is because anything you say to them, they can use against you. So, if you know there is a TV Licence Goon at your door, don't answer it. Indeed, there is no legal requirement for you to answer your door to anyone. Obviously, certain groups such as the police with court warrants are a different matter.

Obviously, at times you may not be able to avoid them for various reasons. Therefore, should you answer the door, let them identify themselves and close the door on them without speaking. In effect, they will get the message and leave the property.

Indeed, you may have a copy of a Withdrawal of The Implied Right of Access (WOIRA) notice handy. If so, hand that to them, then shut the door. Click here for more information about removing the Goon's Implied Right of Access.

The more adventurous ones may also like to video the Goons on the doorstep. Therefore, have a video recording device or mobile phone at hand and record them. In brief, they don't like this and in most cases will walk away.

In the event that you do record the Goons and their intimidation tactics, post them on YouTube. Obviously, you may also post a link to your video here for our entertainment too.

To Sum Up

Finally, there is no need to worry about the Goons. This is because they are a private company trying to sell you a TV Licence. So, just treat them like a vacuum cleaner salesman.
