TV Licence To Beeb Abolished

BOOKMAKERS William Hill believe the TV Licence could be abolished before the end of 2020 and are quoting odds of 6/4 that it is, but 1/2 that it is still in operation by then.

'The TV licence seems to be an idea whose time has been and gone - and few would mourn its disappearance' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.'However, if and when the £145.50 licence goes, having been around since 1946, no doubt some form of levy to replace it will be introduced.'
