Licence to default

MPs have voted to decriminalise those who default in paying their TV licences by reducing it to a civil matter.

This is great news for defaulters and their numbers will mushroom, leaving the poor law-abiding licence payer picking up the extra fees to compensate for them.

This is another classic example of responsible citizens being 
financially burdened and 
unfairly treated by a lazy government cop-out instead of the problem of licence non-payment being tackled with proper and effective methods.
