Bad reception

• I'm informed that although I can no longer receive the RTE TV signal, I'm still bound to purchase a TV licence at €160. Meanwhile, 'd'oul enemy' continues to beam their signal across the Irish Sea into my living room free of charge. Is this the kind of Ireland Michael Collins and his buddies sacrificed their lives for back in the mad old, bad old days?
