Subject: Jamie Cullen leads the way
I see from todays Times that Jamie Cullen, Leading UK Jazz Piano and Singer, is to play an "unlicensed" concert to challenge the music licensing requirements of the 2003 Act.   He hopes he will be prosecuted. I hope he can take the Human Rights issues. Fergal Sharkey has come out strongly in favour of the Act. What a surprise.

Interesting also to note that Kim Howells of the Foreign Office, formerly Education and formerly Ministery of Fun (DCMS) authorised someone on the Sex Offenders register to work as a PE Teacher. This is the same Kim Howells who steered the music provisions from Parliament. Seems his judgement has not improved with experience?
