Rules and Regulations

I got a nasty letter today from the Television Licensing society stating they've sent me numerous communications and my property is still unlicensed. Keep in mind I've had the television for all of 2 weeks and this is the first time they've contacted me. I receive a bunch of mail for former residents of the flat and maybe one of those letters was regarding the license.

I knew I needed a license and thought I could get it at the post office, however when I went to the post office I found out that you can no longer get licenses there. I swear I had it on my list of things to do this week. After the letter I went on-line and bought my license, hopefully I won't get arrested now.

Next on the list is to find a doctor. I spoke to a co-worker tonight and got information on the nhs website where I can find a local doctor. We'll see if I can get my prescription for my allergies before the season hits. We'll see how long I have to wait to get an appointment.

License?? Is this a police state?

Just like the states that are listed as having low taxes - they have fees and licenses on anything and everything to make up money to provide for the citizens.
I can't wait to see you in London and be shown the high points and low points.

Hi Dawn!

I can't believe they make you license the TV! Sounds like you're really settling in there - the flat looks great!
