Petition Television Licence Fee

The people of this country were forced to pay £3.681 billion in 2011–12 to the BBC in tax while other television companies are able to survive without this taxation.

Why are the elderly still forced to pay this antiquated tax to the BBC until they're 75, and then they can apply for a reduction? Privatise the BBC and make them stand on their own two feet and pay their bosses and employees out of money they have earned and not taken from the public.

I know this won't be a popular subject as politicians are scared of the BBC but if the people don't push then you won't.
