Thread Name: Tessa Jowell Sings
Subject: RE: Tessa Jowell Sings
I heard the radio article as well. It was presented as a light-hearted, isn't-this-amusing article, not as something where there is a real issue (i.e. "activities which are perfectly normal are now illegal".) That made things a bit difficult for Hamish, but there was a bigger problem. The woman from Westminster said they were not prosecuting because no-one had complained, so Hamish was invited to complain there and then he declined. As Shambles said, politicians have the resources to get out of this anyway, but imagine he had complained. Do we really want to set a precedent that any infringement, no matter how small, is prosecuted?
