Two-thirds of TV Licensing prosecutions at one London court targeted women

Several of crapita's brave chicken inspectors have been successfully prosecuted for aggaravated tresspass.

The whole thing is a mess - and remember that Crapita are contracted to TV licensing Limited - which is a private company wholly owned by the BBC and not beholden to such things as FOI law.

The idea of a private company being able to undertake _criminal_ prosecutions whilst acting under delegated government authority without being accountable for its activities sticks in the craw.
