A worthy cause

From Liberal Conspiracy:
The Liberal Democrats have a launched a campaign for women’s refuges to get a discount on their TV licenses from the BBC.

While luxury hotels and others get a TV licence discount for multiple sets on their premises, refuges providing shelter and support for victims of domestic abuse are charged the full price for each of their licences.

Individual refuges are reportedly spending hundreds or even thousands of pounds on TV licences that should be spent on essential services for abused women.

To support the scheme you can sign the petition on this website.
