The logic of why this penalisation, of people who are having to shield, shouldn’t go ahead seems blindingly obvious. Or could somebody explain why increasing their isolation would be beneficial at anytime, but particularly now.

I'm signing because I don't think anybody should pay the BBC for a license. They advertise by product placement instead of advertising between shows. Also they don't give impartial news reports.

The TV is company to many old folk, a window to the outside world. Give them something back when they need it most.

Tell our government to give the funding to the BBC back & reinstate this benefit to a lot of people who may possibly not be able to afford it.

We did away with tv licence fees years ago in NZ. Government fund public broadcasting directly and it should be that way in the UK too.
