Re: Bye bye Billag [Welcome our new overlord Serafe]

I have no problem with publicly financed media, especially in a small country with 4 official languages, but the financing mechanism is outrageously archaic, akin to a medieval hearth tax.

Why can't it be financed by the federal government's general revenue like in the majority of developed countries?

All the same, I am not certain that I can hold out for 4 more months from speaking to Billag man directly if they are going to come to our house often... and I don't want to put my visa or financial situation here in any jeopardy as I quite like living here!
