On the subject of our Royals-This from Terry Redmond on uk.music.folk

"That's one protest I WOULD NOT support as the DCMS have advised."

1 That occasional PEL licences, street closures and public land permits should be issued free of charge for the Jubilee celebrations. "If it's OK when it suits their purpose (cheap flag waving) it can't be justified at other times".

2 That professional musicians could be paid in food or beer for Jubilee celebrations. "Which I feel is insulting offer. If a musician chooses to give a free performance, fine. Could you envisage the outcry if Local Government officials were ordered to be paid in fish paste sarnies for the same period?"
