Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event. You don't fail overnight.Instead, failure is a few errors in judgement, repeated every day.
Not too sure why this would have been expected to be an 'attack'? Especially as there was no one in the studio to attack. The points were well made and the tone was just right to inform those who may not be aware of the full extent of this clumsy legislation and the real threat it presents to the public's simple freedoms
This Act places us all in difficult positions - especially should you ever be opposed with professionals at home in such surroundings and fighting for their political lives. When asked if these singers should have been prosecuted - as Hamish was on this show - an answer that they should - would have just opened the door and enabled any politician or media type to turn the argument around.
The point was gently and effectivly made (this time) that it was the absurdities of this Act that place people in these positions that need addressing. Future appearances on this show will hopefully follow and enable further points to be made.
Anyone who feels they can do better - I'm sure would be welcome to demonstrate how it should be done.................
