"But in any event, the credit for music in prisons does not belong to Billy Bragg"

I've never read anywhere that Billy is claiming credit for anything nor is he saying Jail Guitar Doors is the only programme of its kind...the publicity from Jail Guitar Doors, one can hope, will aid bringing to the forefront the already existing programmes. I agree with kat...if a celebrity is involved in programmes like Jail Guitar Doors it's automatcally becomes suspect in the eyes of many...well as I said in my original post...at least Billy Bragg is doing something
