It doesn't even need a big stick to bring some very poor, sick, lonely, and possibly recently bereaved elderly people to their knees. To take something away like this that has already been given is rather cruel when some budgets just wont stretch any further. I know there is all this clap-trap about exemptions if they are claiming certain benefits but the poverty line is very thin and it is extremely undignified to have something like this means-tested. I am 77 and don't have a TV Licence at the moment and wont do anything unless and until they come after me for it, then I will see what stance I take. Happily I can afford it but I wont give in gracefully as a matter of principle.
