Subject: PEL hit squads!
From: harvey andrews
Date: 05 Jan 03 - 07:50 AM

On my morning constitutional around the quiet country lanes outside my village this morning I came across the smashed remains of an acoustic guitar. It appeared to have been violently assaulted and then dismembered. Nothing like this has happened before. Could it be that government PEL hit squads are in training? Was some lovelorn youth wandering at night in our starry, frosty countryside gently strumming a love song to his beloved only to be pounced on by a licensing officer and his trained suppressers? Is he now languishing in a cell wondering how he can raise £20,000 to avoid six months incarceration?
We have been warned!

Definitely material for one of your songs, Harvey. You've already drafted it out above!!

Harvey, it sounds more like "unwanted Christmaw present syndrome" to me: unwanted by the other family members, that is! It happened to my cousin in 1965 ... "You or me, boy, is gonna roam ... And I ain't goin'!"

" If you want to get in trouble
let me tell you how to do it
you get yourself a guitar
and then your right in to it
you play all day and you play all night
people say you'll never learn
to play the thing right,
always moaning at you
wont let you practice"....
Lonnie Donegan
that what you had in mind Steve?

Perhaps we should find some way of persuading PEL hit squads that it's Bodhrans, Kazoos and Banjos that represent the main danger. The police might even consider an amnesty so that they could be handed in.

Harvey have you looked to see if there are another two similarly treated instruments nearby?

Shouldn't Ralphie have a capital J in 'just?' Just teasing. Remember Dave in Hinckley who wrote the song about 'The Knock-on-the-Door-in-the-Night Squad? Is he still around?

I must admit that Shambles has got a point. The two-in-a-bar rule has not been repealed yet, so there would need to be at least three people to break the law.

On the other hand - does the two-in-a-bar rule apply outside bars !

No only on liquor licensed premises. The exemption recognised that small-scale entertainment was safe as these premises were inspected and licensed to ensure the publc's safety.

Which is why it is such a nonsense when councils now claim that the addition of one to a duo, automatically make these perfectly safe premises, unsafe.

Gurney, does Dave in Hinckley's KOTDITNS have any relation to Barrie Roberts' song of the same name?
