Thanks Noreen. It is a question of sticking at our MPs. It is all about votes to them, being seen and also being seen to be popular.

We have to try and make sure that the issue is seen to be of concern to many and that the side of reason is going to prevail - eventually. The trick is to make them see advantage in supporting this and being seen to be on the winning side.

Getting them to suppoert the EDM is a vital start in the process, and this prsent number is a pretty good figure already for EDMs. This in encouraging but we need more names and we need to inform them also, That the entertainment part of the reform is ill-thought through and an afterthought, that will make the situation far worse, in its present form.

The next challenge is getting them to change the proposals, so that it is indeed a refom, not only of liquor licensing but manages in freeing music making from the clutches of our officials, once and for all.

We are only going to get one shot at this, so it had better be a good one............ PLEASE HELP!
