We, the undersigned demand the immediate cancellation of the television
licence fee.

We believe this is an indiscriminate tax that makes no allowance for
personal choice and indeed pays for no meaningful public service.

It is our view that the BBC should be funded by voluntary subscription or
sponsorship, and that those who choose not to support the corporation, its
aims, values and output, should be free to do so.

The world has moved on since the days when the BBC was central to British
life. It is high time that legislation was introduced to catch up with this
fact. Any modern government that fails to acknowledge this fact is quite
simply defying the will of the people.
