The War On Entertainment
Liberal Democrate Culture, Media and Sport spokesman Tim Clement Jones says Live Music Must Not Be Silenced Mr. Clement Jones is introducing a bill into Parliament that, in the unlikely event of its succeeding in becoming law would reverse some of the draconian measures in previous government licencing law reform that places prohibitive restrictions on small venues whishing to offer live entertainment. These laws, he claims, are preventing new performers and musicians from gaining the experience on which they can build a career.
For all Labour’s hypocritical posturing on the binge drinking culture we should remember it was they who changed licensing laws in favour of 24 hour drinking which not only made the lives of pub landlords harder but at the same time did a big favour for the profits of the Coporate Interests that owned pub chains and drinks manufacturers.
At the same time the Labour regime tightened up regulations on live music and entertainment venues. Well their corporate paymasters did not want anything to distract the binge drinkers from spending money on booze did they?
