SIR: What a disgrace for the fat cats of the BBC, with their enormous salaries and bonuses, to take from poor paid pensioners more than their weekly pension to pay for their television licence.

We struggle to live on the meagre pension, so they are intent on making us poorer with robbing us of a week’s pension. How would they manage if it was them, no consideration as usual for pensioners many of whom have worked all their lives and feel put on the scrap heap.

Let’s hope they enjoy their well-paid salaries and remember that one day they will be old but it won’t affect them because they have no idea what it is to struggle. Disgusting.

P Dollery (Mrs),

Winnall Manor Road,
