The Shambles Miskin 2007 cancelled ! (97* d) RE: Obit: Miskin 2007 cancelled ! 23 Mar 07

The interpretation and application of all laws is very much open to local interpretation.

In many cases, the local interpretations used and the ones that do the most harm are in fact unlawful but sadly are rarely challenged.

The only way avoid anyone falling foul of such things is to ensure that the dealings are conducted openly and to ensure that all experiences are fully shared to make sure that the law is being followed.

To do otherwise is to play into the hands of the opposition and ensure that such things continue and that the treatment dished out will will be a lottery, dependent on where you happen to live.

For whatever part of this country you live in - the legislation is supposed to be the same and is there to protect the public.

It is difficult (without further information) to square the ideas that the festival's non-apperance this year was both due to the Licensing Act (as publicly claimed) and that the circumstances will probably never apply to another similar venue.

What Scrump is saying is perfectly correct and to paint anyone who may not agree with your approach towards the wider picture and other events, and who may wish for more information and who may be just as upset and concerned - as looking to score politcal points to bring down the Government is just silly.

More importantly - it is not helpful.
