Well done Dominic 2439 is a marvellous total for such a short time.

However (IMHO) it's not enough to make a difference YET.

We need to count on musicians from other genres to boost the total.

If you have any frieinds/colleagues who play;-
Country/Jazz/Rock/Pop/Soul/Indie/Brass/Barbers-shop/Classical etc etc.
Or if you visit any other music forums

Please ask them to visit http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/licensing/ and sign
this important petition.

The recently introduced changes in licensing law have produced an
environment where music and dance, activities which should be valued
and promoted in a civilised society, are instead damaged by
inappropriate regulation. We call on the Prime Minister to recognise
this situation and take steps to correct it.
We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to recognise that music
and dance should not be restricted by burdensome licensing regulations.


KEEP MUSIC LIVE
