Subject: RE: Killed by the PEL system
Well I'll be darned! I recall during my college years working on building sites and going off on friday and saturday with the Irish crowd for a p?? up and sing song. Now it did not matter who or how many had a squeeze box, piano or whatever, we did not care~! - and nobody ever stopped us, nor can I recall ever hearing of such a thing!

Folk clubs which charge on the door for entertainment are restricted by insurance and local bylaw so I am not surprised to be reading that. It always was that way.

Sessions, used be called Singsongs, and that is nothing new but really when there is disagreement about it we should find another pub!

Often unknown to revellers there are complaints from neighbours and these will cause the local authority to act. Fair is fair folks so when you want to get to sleep - maybe you work nights?- you should be allowed to!

Unreasonable meddling by local authorities can and does happen - often at the behest of a jealous competitor etc - and is shameful. Again finding another venue can help.
