It must be me.......

he said that if the MU were to lobby for satellite television to become a licensable entertainment this would be 'resisted robustly' by the leisure industry. He did not go on to explain why the leisure industry took this position, but it seems reasonably clear: the leisure industry believes that if satellite tv were a licensable entertainment, most smaller bars and pubs where it is provided would be subject to the same onerous conditions local authorities are prone to impose on any live music.

But all the licensee has to do is ask for provision for entertainment when he gets his new license and it won't cost him... Kim tells us so..... so include televised performances and jukeboxes and make the entertaiments section part of the standard license - then everyone will have it - and we will all be happy?

just a thought.............
