Subject: RE: Sign a E Petition to 10 Downing St PELs
[snip]I have received information from a civil servant in DCMS that busking does not need a licence but a buskers festival does and the organisers could be finded or imprisoned for doing so without a licence. [/snip]I have sent this e-mail and will copy you in on any reply !

With all due respect you are making a simple error here.

That is you are assuming there is some form of logic attached to what is being done.

As you will find out when/if they reply....(15 working days they reckon on) logic flies out the window.........

The DCMS have repatedly insisted that busking will not be made illegal by the Bill. But Kim Howells says 6 japanese drummers will make too much noise in a pub. So they go outside and busk and that;s OK?

From the Sheffield City Giants practice this morning......

At his press conference the Minister admitted to not knowing about the English Folk Dance and Song Society........

The clue is in the name Kim...........(copywrite Alec Brady)
