Subject: RE: Sign a E Petition to 10 Downing St PELs
When I sent a fax to my MP a few days ago I included the text of the petition as a good way of summing up some of the issues.

Good little letter in today's Guardian from a mate of mine, succintly getting across the point it's not just folk music that is under threat:

It's all very well being flippant about folk music (Letters, December 17), but the proposed bill threatens informal music, dancing, hymn services, nativity plays, football terrace chanting, and singing happy birthday in a public place. Spontaneous entertainment will die.
