It's another 7 years before DSO in this area, some people served for
analogue by one of the smaller relay stations won't get digital before
then. If they now want a small, cheap set for a bedroom (for
instance) why should they have to buy one with all the extra
circuitry which they don't want?

Well, leaving aside arguments which can go on for ever about how much "all
the extra circuitry" actually costs, this is why the petition is NOT to ban
analogue-only sets, but only to ensure they are clearly LABELLED as such
(with as few extra words as possible to explain that means they won't work -
without an extra box - for more than 5 years).
