They've just renewed the right of the BBC to charge a licence fee for another ten years! TEN YEARS! That's going to cost me at least 1,256 pounds. Probably more, because I expect the price will go up at some point in the next decade.
That's over a thousand pounds for TV that I never watch.
And no, the BBC is not 'special', it is not 'unique', and they do have adverts - just adverts for their own bloody shows.
How can it be legal to charge me for something I don't want and never use?
