The Shambles Affected by The Licensing Act 2003 (439* d) RE: Affected by The Licensing Act 2003 07 Apr 07

The government has brought in a law which few people agree with and some councils have applied it more firmly than any other.

But we would all I think agree that it the SAME law that applies everywhere in England and Wales.

I am rather tired of attitude the attitude that accepts that the treatment live music making receives is some kind of lottery, dependant on where you live.

If live music making can be protected well under this legislation in one part of the land - it up to those fortunate few to ensure that others do not suffer and that everyone else has the protection the words of this legislation provide.

I am sure that some employees of some of our local authorities are happy to return to version of the old feudal system and have caps doffed by those wishing to be granted personal favours by terrified and powerless peasants. But it is up to us to ensure that the words of this law are followed equally everywhere by those employed to operate it and that they are not allowed to make it up for their convienience.
