Subject: RE: Music Police raid Sloop, Barton Lincs
Perhaps it could be pointed out to the police that there is case-law under the current law that does make a distinction between paid 'performers' and pub customers 'solacing themselves with the music'?

As the distinction is something the new legislation is determined to change, perhaps we should all be fighting to establish it now, a little harder, rather than just waiting for the new law to wipe this vital distnction away?
