Free TV Licence for over 75’s to end from August 1st!

How come the BBC has to foot the bill for what is a universal pensioner benefit – the over 75’s Concessionary TV licence?

A group of Hornsey Pensioners opposing the loss of the over 75’s TV licence will stand in protest outside the BBC Television Tower at Alexandra Palace from 11.00 to 11.30 on Thursday July 30th.

See the National Pensioners Convention press release and petitions to be signed. NPC urge you to sign and share the Age UK petition online at

Wake up call to Save the BBC!

The Co-operative Party says ‘Licence-fee payers should be made individual members of the BBC Trust, and treated as such, with greater say over how it is run and the service it provides.’
