t Double Yellow's Musings: Licence Fees and Foreign Dramas
The warped mind of Double Yellow craves for humor everyday.

Licence Fees and Foreign Dramas

More numbers again. Not 1, Not 2, not even 3 but a whopping $111,000,000 was collected by the gahmen for TV and radio licence fees during the last financial year. See here.

This money has been used to fund 3000 hours of public service programmes, including National Day Rally and National Day broadcasts. And 8% of the money goes towards foreign movies and dramas. Hang on... 8 percent? That is $8,880,000 !!

Oh well, I guess it’s not much to carp about since those are about the only times when we don’t get public service programmes :)

On the morning of March 5, the Channel 8 was showing a re-run of a kids game program. At the end of the program, when the credit rolled out, the show was dated way back in Dec 2002. It even had an announcement to ask viewer to send in answers to contest by Jan 15, 2003.

The people paid for $111m and we get this kind of program on prime time Sunday morning.

I’m Charles David by name, i want to use this medium to alert all loan seekers to be very careful because there are scam everywhere, Few months ago I was financially strained, and due to my desperation I was scammed by several online lenders. I had almost lost hope until a friend of mine referred me to a very reliable lender called Dr Purva Pius ( A God fearing man) who lend me a loan of $237,000 under 72 working hours without any stress. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will get my loan from this company and also i have made the right choice of contacting them i filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and to my shock I was given the loan, If you are in need of any kind of loan just contact him now via: {urgentloan22@gmail.com}

I‘m using this medium to alert all loan seekers because of the hell I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent lenders.

Thanks you Dr Purva Pius Loan service for your help.
