Hi all, Sorry to bother ya. Don't know if you're aware of this, or if you opose. Please circulate this to as many people as possible, if you do object, if you don't sorry to bother ya'll News & Events: As many of you will be aware our country's licensing laws are due to undergo some major changes, which will definately benefit those of us who like a few ales from time to time. However, the present bill will adversly affect live music and performance to the extent that it will become illegal, and punishable by prison to teach music, use a rehearsal room, try an instrument in a music shop, make a recording in a recording studio, unless a license is first obtained. The current bill would make live music licensable in pubs, clubs, places where alcohol is served, churches, mosques, synagogues and other places of worship, schools and colleges, community centres, village halls and private homes and gardens (singing Happy Birthday would become illegal!). This bill is an assault on our civil liberties and will severely restrict participation of the performing arts. If you would like to object then please sign the ever-growing petition (currently 40,000ish signatures) at: www.PetitionOnline.com/2inabar Ive.
