ET Minister say's jamming OK in UK (305* d) RE: Minister say's jamming OK in UK 20 Jul 05

I wonder if the Minister really understands his own act. What a mess!

I presume he thinks that "jamming" is musicians playing for their own pleasure and maybe keeping traditional music alive. But its not his interpretation that counts - its the courts - and just as important, not getting chucked out by a confused and frightened landlord or landlady.

I think there will be an explosion of anger over this. If James Purnell likes live music, as a Minister he ought to consider the mess he has inherited from the wretched Kim Howells and consider whether this can be saved by Ministerial statutory instrument - like removing live music from the list!
