Re: I am old enough to remember...

As a famous(ish) after dinner speaker once said. Though I've probably mangled it.

"if you've got a TV you need a licence. It doesn't improve reception but you're supposed to have one. Now there are only two vans with spinning roof racks in the West Midlands....

Same for airports, you need an operators licence. There's not a lot you can do about it. Try putting billboards around but people are going to notice the odd 747 taking off and going in. "

And then he goes onto about CAA putting a massive increase in licence in response to losing money. Though he did qualify it by mentioning that British Steel could lose that much in a week.

Just looked him up. David Gunson is the man. CD available on Amazon etc. Some jokes a bit dated.
