Reports that BBC hires 800 new licence fee agents as cancellations of fee EXPLODE!

The Times is reporting that an extra 800 licence-fee agents have been taken on in a bid to prevent chaos and have also agreed to allow poorer pensioners to claim a free licence without submitting documentary proof.

The BBC is not currently disclosing how many other people are cancelling their licences but there are reports on social media that it could now be running into MILLIONS. Many have stated they are sick of the anti-Brexit and progressive agenda pushed by the BBC whilst continuing to pay over-inflated salaries to those who simply read off a teleprompter as well as a bloated management and expenses bill.

Pensioners’ campaigners are urging resistance and had called on all over-60s to cancel their TV licence direct debits in solidarity with over-75s and instead offer to pay with monthly, backdated cheques.

Dennis Reed, of Silver Voices, the community organisation behind the protest, pledged a “long attritional campaign” to force the BBC into a U-turn.

He said many pensioners had already cancelled their automatic payments with to try to jam TV Licensing’s administration systems rather than put protesters at risk of prosecution by refusing to pay.

Silver Voices said: “It defies belief that, as a second wave of coronavirus marches over the horizon, the BBC are doing this.

“It shows a lack of compassion, a lack of empathy, a lack of understanding.”

The BBC said that 90 per cent of older pensioners were aware of the new system after it was promoted on its services, and 450,000 had applied for a free licence.

A spokesperson for the embattled corporation said:

“Over-75s will start to receive letters from today. No one needs to do anything until they have received the letter and no one needs to leave their home.”

People applying for a free licence must submit photocopies of documents from the Department for Work and Pensions or the Pension Service to prove that they are in receipt of pension credit.

Those who do not have access to a photocopier have been forced to post in bank statements leading to accusations that they could face fraud.
