The TV Licensing Agency officers have released some of the best excuses for not having a license. Here are some:
"No, that's not a TV you can hear in the background, it's a tape of adverts I play to entertain the children"
"That's not a TV, it's a fish tank"!
" I never use my TV. I just turned it on Eastenders to see if it effected the reception on my radio"
"I don't need a license as I only watch Australian soaps and you don't need a license in Australia"
"It's a Black and White TV, the colour you can see is a one-off programme special"
"The TV is to keep the cat warm - we don't watch it"
"That's not the Weakest Link in the background. Anne Robinson is a friend who is visiting for tea"
"It's amazing, you're the first person to find this place. We didn't get a licence because we thought you wouldn't find us"
"I only watch Sky channels so I don't need a licence"
"Just because I have a satellite dish on my house, doesn't mean I've got a TV - I've got two pints of milk on my doorstep, but no cow in my garden."
"God told me I must buy the television as he had a very important message for me - he didn't tell me to buy a licence though."
"You'll never get me in court, I'll say I'm insane and pretend to be a helicopter."
And specific areas of the country...

Why Wulfweard the White? Well over the past 15 years I have been searching out my family tree, with mixed results, but have links to a Saxon 'warrior' Wulfweard the White who appears in the Domesday Book and is supposedly buried on Hayling Island.
Wulfweard was a Thane (a man ranking above an ordinary freeman and below a noble in Anglo-Saxon England, especially one who gave military service in exchange for land) His duty was to act as protector (bodyguard) to Emma, mother of Edward the Confessor and Edith sister of King Harold. He died in the 1066 invasion but his son Edward survived and owned land in Bedfordshire.
So that was Wulfweard, a character whom I would have liked to have known a lot more about. Which is strange considering at school I had little or no interest in History.If you are looking to start your own family tree (mine now numbers over 3000 name)then there are a number of good sites to visit:
