Lindsay Fregus' column: It's time to tune into reality TV.
A FRIEND of mine recently bought a new house and no sooner had he received the keys when a letter arrived from the Television Licensing Agency.
It informed him that there was no record of a licence for that address.
So being the decent law-abiding citizen that he is, he notified them that the house was presently unoccupied and therefore there was no television.
End of story? Of course not.
The television licensing people demanded to know the date that he was moving in.
I kid you not.
He pointed out that such information was none of their business and as soon as he bought a television he would get a licence - as he had always intended.
You would think by the way they behaved that there are no real licence dodgers out there.
It's time the Television Licensing Agency switched off their interrogation of law abiding residents and tuned into reality.
