Thread Name: Music Police raid Sloop, Barton Lincs
Subject: Music Police raid Sloop, Barton Lincs
I gather as Parliament debated Iraq the Music Police of North Lincs Council had other more sinister targets to consider and raided for the second week running, the Sloop at Barton. They had been the week before and "advised" the setting up of a folk club as a private club. This was done but the return visit disapproved the curtained off area and demanded a separate room. Attempts are being made with the Landlord to satisfy these demands. Maybe there are weapons of mass destruction around including the deadly piano accordian and maybe even the more leathal mandolin!
It is hoped to get this years old session going again next week but fear the arrival of an armoured personnel carrier from Scunthorpe!
Remember this - support the campaign to keep acoustic music away from licensing - make life hellish for your MP and make sure nothig slips under the smokescreen of war!
