Sunday Times: BBC unlikely to prosecute licence fee rebel Charles Moore


The BBC is unlikely to launch a criminal prosecution against former Daily Telegraph editor Charles Moore for his refusal to pay his TV licence fee, the Sunday Times reports.

Two weeks ago, Moore wrote in his Telegraph column that he would refuse to pay his TV licence if the corporation continued to employ Jonathan Ross.

According to the Sunday Times, the BBC declines to prosecute such conscientious objectors to the TV licence for fear of creating “martyrs”. Other licence fee refusniks include Noel Edmunds and former Russian dissident Vladimir Bukovsky.
