Forgive me for asking Tombo,
                           But why fork out for a TV licence if you don,t have a TV, Surely this is a misrepresentations of the facts,

No I do buy a licence at the full rate.  I feel that the UK is really lucky to have the BBC and it should be supported. Reliable trustworthy news is very important to me. 
 Looking at the US where Fox news has given the world Trump. I'd say we were lucky to have the BBC.

I agree Tombo.
             But the point that I am trying to make is that you obviously must watch or listen to the BBC otherwise you would not be aware of the superior quality. I have at least 5 cousins who have been reporting on the BBC at the one time. One of them retired in 2015 as the longest serving  reporter on the news front.
   Yet to pay the licence and not do watch the TV shows remarkable will power.

 To Quote Stann,
                    " Then why does she have to go back and fork out any miserable profit to the original tipper and ask them what they will do with it."
    Very good question Stan.  I guess she wants to show them what they were throwing away in terms of worth but that don,t make a load of sense either.
It is Sarah who makes the show and you end up wanting her to do well and not get conned by the other parties who are supposed to turn out works of art from her rescue efforts.
  God help the show if Reeves and Mortimer cast a wicked eye over them.
