ET Your views wanted by UK Government (21) RE: Your views wanted by UK Government 20 Apr 06

Top of the Pops may be illegal. Nanny knows best. On the Today programme this morning was a feature about Hammersmith and Fulham Council telling the BBC that Top of the Pops, featuring a live audience, needed a licence under the 2003 Act. The BBC does not have one and mention was made of 20,000 and or 6 months! Jimmy Saville and others spoke of young people rising like corks in water to support this long standing institution and of the Nanny State gone mad!!!

This is the sort of thing I will raise with Fergal once I have suceeded in becoming registered - its quite a process.   I agree that internal grumblings between musicians gets nowhere but neither does a direct approach to DCMS - I am simple regarded I think as a trouble maker who will not comply! "We must agree to differ" - seems to be the end of futher discussion.
