Rewriting History (2) The Live Music Act, the MU and a poem by Brecht

Here’s the Musicians Union writing about their “huge victory” the Live Music Act.

With reference to Tim Clement-Jones, Don Foster, Deborah Annetts, Phil Little, John King, Dale Collins, Simon Mehigan, Andy Grimsey, John Whittingdale, Tony Colwyn, Michael Grade, Dick Laurie, Dave Gelly, Annie Bright, Stephen Spence and Louise McMullan from Equity, Joan Bakewell from the National Campaign for the Arts, Hamish Birchall and many others….

….I will take the liberty of quoting from a poem byBrecht:

Caesar defeated the Gauls.
Did he not even have a cook with him ? [..]

Frederick the 2nd won the 7 Years War.
Who else won it ?

  1. What a load of bollocks. The MU's lack of interest in this is why I left the Union! How dare they publish such lies? John Smith et al did everything they could to ridicule Hamish and others who tried to get the law changed!
