Ruthless and underhand tactics used by BBC licence fee agents can be exposed today.

Under an aggressive incentive scheme, hundreds of enforcement officers have orders to each catch 28 evaders a week.

Bosses promise bonuses of up to £15,000 a year, saying staff must gather evidence to take as many people to court as possible.

Homeowners who fail to pay can be fined and given criminal records.

Among the vulnerable targeted in the past seven days are a war veteran with dementia and a desperate young mother in a women’s refuge.

The revelations come from an investigation by a Daily Mail undercover reporter interviewed for an enforcement job by Capita.


What a charming lot the cuddly BBC are.

Their abolition couldn't come soon enough for me. Not had a telly in over a decade anyway - and I was just ahead of the game it seems. The BBC model is dead. Good riddance.

What is wrong with bonuses, big companies pay bonuses to their bosses for good performance. And now some lowly plebs get bonuses about £14000, nothing in comparisons what the big bosses get, and for hard work.

What kind of capitalist are you anyway? :roll:

My big nose catches a smell of socialism, ukip socialism. :roll:

Sieg Farage.

When I lived in Botswana, there was a BBC radio program "Focus on Africa." It was complete shite. The program opened with this strident musical (minor key dramatic stuff). First off all the whole concept of a program that focuses on the entire continent is ridiculous and reflects stupid 19th century notions of geography and culture. But on top of that, every single story they told about a continent that is two or three times as large as Europe and comparably populous was about either war, famine, corruption, crime or some form of suffering. NEVER any reporting of anything positive, and this basically meant never a single story about Botswana. Ever since then I've watched them with a more critical eye. Some of their nature documentaries are fairly entertaining; as long as they don't start plucking the political environmentalist harp strings. But I've come to regard them as being incapable of either good journalism or balanced reporting. They are propagandists for a dying socialist brand of philosophy. Same with CNN and MSNBC and many others I fear.

... and Botswana is actually doing pretty well! better than South America for sure. They'll be overtaking Mexico and Turkey fairly soon at current rate too.

You ARE joking, right?

Surely you can't believe that is capitalism?
