There are lots of sound arguments for boycotting the BBC's licence fee.
Perhaps the easiest to make is that it is a regressive tax - everyone pays the same, regardless of their income or ability to pay. As the licence is compulsory for all households watching television or TV programmes via a computer, we all pay the same whether we want to watch the BBC or not. Thirdly the BBC as an institution represents a rather narrow cultural elite - overwhelmingly middle class and London based, it grows fat on money taken from working class licence payers across the whole of the United Kingdom.
Perfectly sensible alternatives, such as the abolition of the licence fee and the BBC becoming a subscription service, exist. There is also an e-petition against the licence fee.
For the 9/11 Truth movement, such sensible arguments are of course irrelevant. The text below comes from the latest kick-start to Ian Henshall's Reinvestigate 9/11 campaign:
Congratulations to Anthony Rooke of Christians for 9/11 Truth. Anthony is refusing to pay his TV license on the grounds that, by suppressing the truth about 9/11, the BBC is aiding and abetting terrorism. Under Section 15 Article 3 of the draconian Terrorism Act 2000, if there is any possibility that you might be aiding terrorism you are obliged to refuse.
The outline of Tony's case has been accepted as arguable, and a full hearing is scheduled for the morning of Monday 25 February at Magistrates' Court, Horsham, West Sussex in front of a judge.
Sadly we are not told who has 'accepted the outline of Tony's case is arguable' - presumeably someone who takes the view the taxpayers has limitless funds to entertain conspiracy theorists. It seems 25th February will bring some of the truth movements 'stars' to Horsham - Niells Harrit and Ian Henshall are both poised to give 'evidence'. Sadly, as with any truth movement intervention, the biggest fear for activists is not the state but the potential problems posed by other activists. Reinvestigate 9/11's email warns:
"You are invited to attend and respectfully show support for Tony. Please do not assume the judge is biased against us. Even if he finds against Tony he may make comments which could be very useful in confronting the BBC Trust."
There are plenty of things the BBC Trust should be worrying about. The BBC's coverage of 9/11 is not one of them.
