Abolish the Telly Tax? Fat chance, say MPs at non-binding debate

Many of the petition signatories will be paying £60+ for Sky.

And if they don't watch BBC why should they pay for it?

Before the merger with BSB, Sky didn't need a licence. (Wasn't classified as a broadcaster due to the band used, that was fixed that when the merger happened.) I knew several people who subscribed and didn't have a licence (or a problem with the authorities).
