So now tuning up is now counted as a form of entertainment...Curiouser and curiouser.

I think this could be the case we've been waiting for. It's simple enough for even the average MP and reporter to understand. And it lends itself to laughing at the jobsworths.

It's in easy range of the "National" newspapers, and the TV. (If it doesn't happen in London, it doesn't happen, unless maybe it's the right kind of murder.) And there is an actual prosecution involved, and it's on the daftest bit of the whole thing, the idea that more than two in an evening, even if they aren't playing at the same time counts as breaking the rules.

I've just faxed a copy of this to my MP via http://www.faxyourmp.com, as an example of how nasty and crazy the present situation is - and I suggest other people do this as well.
