The Shambles 2-in-a-bar (UK) the Times today (30) RE: 2-in-a-bar (UK) the Times today 08 Feb 07

That's why electric music and dancing needs licensing.

Most would agree that there are sensible reasons for why any public gathering could benefit by the introduction of certain measures, in order to protect the interests of all those involved or affected.

From the failed history of this attempt, I don't agree that licensing is the answer to your problem, but I certainly would not accept that restricting all music and dance by burdomsome licensing regulations is any form of answer to anything.

But even if it were - the petition is against music and dance being singled out and 'restricted by burdomsome licensing regulations'.

I assume that you would not be in favour of burdomsome licensing restrictions to achieve your desired result for it was those we were hoping to see the back of when this new legislation was proposed - so I fail to see any good reason why you cannot sign this petition.

If the legislation to protect the public from all forms of disruptive noise are thought not to be adequate - then it is this legislation that needs to be addressed.

Loud noise from any other source can be equally disruptive but no one is seriously suggesting that it should or even could be adressed by entertainment licensing.
