If you put power in the hands of the wrong people this is what happens - Morecambe Today

It's an article about music, so it's certainly worth posting. We prohibit lengthy copy-paste posts only on non-music topics.

End of the Pier show?

EVERY Monday afternoon, senior citizens from all over the north of England gather at the Pier Hotel in Morecambe for an Old Time Music Hall sing-song.

16 February 2005

Posted by Shambles here (click), so I deleted my copy.

Thanks Chris

Joe - I thought the same - so I had already pasted it in the following thread.

http://www.mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=51867&messages=93

Please don't now delete either of them?

However I was not aware - nor I suspect is anyone else that 'we' now allow music related copy-pastes. Perhaps you can announce this change?
    That's always been the case, Shambles, and it's stated that way in the FAQ. Music copy-pastes are encouraged, although we do ask that people indicate where they obtained all copy-paste information. Information often disappears from the Internet, and links die - so we want to preserve pertinent music information here. Non-music copy-pastes should be covered by a summary and a link if they fill more than one screen.
    But no, there's no reason for the same article to be posted twice at Mudcat. Your post will preserve the article just fine. I'll delete mine.

This country gets dafter by the minute! It's no wonder 280,000 people emigrated from England last year.

I have visions of my great grandchildren saying 'sing us one of the old songs, Granny?' and Limpit having to tell them she doesn't know any because singing was banned by Emperor Blair in 2008.....

On either side of the "pond", stupid, petty, self-important little local bureacrats can be a royal pain.

(Not only has this been the policy (music-pastes), it's been TOLD to Shambles several times, in BOLD TYPE.)

Well I think they should all be put under house arrest for terrorising Morecombe in this way, and those 'speakeasy' gambling joints or 'Bingo Clubs' should be closed down... these senior hooligans should be taught better behaviour by their parents... they are obviously responsible for the increase in gum crime... that Miss Marple should get some Community Support Officers to help her.....

God/Allah/Little green Men preserve us from our Govt.

We thought the "Two in a Bar" rule was dead?

and a "Music License" was Free when applied for with the new pub License - They might have work to do for the stage/trips etc but that's the same whether it's a brass band, choir or a solo organist.

We thought the "Two in a Bar" rule was dead?

The Premises Licence can now be applied for (as from February 2005) but the current legislation does not die until November 2005.

You may have thought however that in this tranistion period, local authorities would have acted sensibly. But if they had ever acted sensibly - there would have been no need to change the law to try and make them.

In this case - if the music hall carried just on (and applied for entertainment permission with their new Premises Licence) - any prosecution would be very unlikely. And as there is no real safety issue - it is in nobody's interest to prevent this activity.

There may be a few of this regular audience thet may qualify for legal aid. They could make a case for their right of freedom of expression being prevented by the Council - when there were no grounds to do so.....

If I had known that it would cause this much trouble I wouldn't have mentioned it.

I was just intending to highlight the confusion that exists around live music legislation in this country and that much of it is left to the interpretation of individual bureaucrats.
