It's still a 'Law' that you must carry a bale of hay in your vehicle at all times.

 

Do you have a bale of hay in your car everytime you travel?

 

If you don't, then you are a criminal. 

Firstly, I thought that law applied to Taxis not regular vehicles.   

 

In any event, as such law is not actively enforced the answer is no I dont.   However, if the the state decided to start actively prosecuting people for failing to do I would either have to chance may way or be prepared to get caught out and be liable for charges.

 

What is well known and even publicised is that they ARE actively prosecuting people who dont have a television licence.  The law is clearly enforceable and therefore people either comply or face the consequnences.  

 

I really dont get your point.

Forr an organisation moaning about being cash strapped, anyone watching the BBC's endless credits roll by for about 5 mins at the end of Wimbledon on Sunday night would be thinking their rolling in money. 

 

Why did the men's final require 3 commentators & then Sue Barker at the end just interviewing them.  All in all there must have been well over 50 commentators involved for the tv production.  Then came the separate commentators for BBC 5 live?  Why can't the TV commentary be shared with the radio?

 

The number of producers, directors, executive producers & executive directors ran into hundreds. 

 

Last figures I can find is from 2017 which state the BBC spent £60 million covering Wimbledon fortnight.
