Dear Sir/Madam,

I hope people who won’t pay [the TV licence fee] do the decent thing and boycott BBC programmes.

It would be hypocritical to watch and not pay.

Do readers realise that if the licence fee were to be abolished, then similar to cable, a subscription and 15 minutes of adverts would appear?

For cable (Sky etc) I pay £50 per month (including sport) and it is possible if you have all their packages to pay £100 per month.

So be careful what you wish for.

BBC will only be more expensive if freed to market forces.

P.B, Bitterne.
