why do we have to pay a licence for bbc when they put adverts on


T he BBC and it,s licence fee is up in 2006.
The BBC state they do not put adverts on , but from the days of Open all Hours and throughout
they have put adverts on.
In open all hours you had R.whites, plus all the others.
East Enders you have Harp , Skol ect , not like Coranation Steet Newton and Ridley.(a fictitious brand)
In the Royal Family you have Club , Wagon Wheels ,ect.
ON A Question of Sport many years ago Bob Beaumont the rugby player wore a Fred Perry t shirt, throughout the programme it was blanked out with a blob.
In October A well known International football payer was fined £34,500. FOR WEARING THE WRONG SPONSORED T SHIRT ON FRENCH T.V.

That means a precedant as been set,so what about
all the Sport on BBBC WITH ALL THE ADVERTS.
The Embassy Darts , The John Player Cricket,
All cig are banned from adverts also.

On any sport on BBC at the interviews you get a board with adverts on in the background.
The Oxford Dictionary states that an advert is is a brand name shown on a board or hoarding or broardcast to make generally or publicly known to praise publicly in order to encourage people to buy or use something.

So why do we need a licence to watch BBC, THEY ALSO STATE THAT IN ADVERTS THAT WITH THE DIGETIAL BOX THE CHANNELLS ARE FREE TO VIEW, SO DOES THIS COME UNDER THE TRADE DESCRIPTION ACT.

So why do we have to have a licence ?
Could this be the end of the BBC and the licence
fee ,its up to you before it comes up for Royal Charter in 2006
I would like to hear your views
