St Walpurga the Licenceless
When I moved into a flat in the 1980s I didn't have a television. A few Sundays I would walk round to Mum and Dad's in the evening and watch the Grand Prix highlights but other than that I didn't miss a TV. However, the TV licensing people would not believe I didn't have a TV and kept sending me notices threatening to prosecute me if I didn't buy my licence. I even had someone call at the door but I refused him admission on principle. That, of course made them more suspicious. After all, no one could live without a TV, could they? In the end they gave up when I threatened to take them to court for harassment.
In 2009 the German authorities went through a similar palaver. They sent St Walpurga a demand for immediate payment of a television licence. Father Karl Terhorst of the Roman Catholic church of St Walpurga in Ramsdorf was obliged to write and explain that St Walpurga had died in in 779 and, so far as he knew, had never had a television!
