Bebop Spoken There

Clare Teal: "If you're brought up in a working-class family, you haven't got money for records so everything you get hold of, you treasure, learn to love, and I loved those Ella tapes." - (Radio Times 23-29 January 2021)

Leaflets or Litter?

Just about every organisation distributes leaflets to promote their events - its an essential form of marketing. Now, according to The Guardian (June 30, p.8), 45 local authorities including Newcastle require that you buy a licence to allow you to hand out your leaflets. Jazz Café's Keith Crombie who unsuccessfully took the Council to court argued that "...the regulations infringed his rights to freedom of speech..." Keith had to buy a licence.
In Leicester a licence costs £103 plus a further £26 per distributer per day.
Paradoxically local authorities themselves produce a massive number of leaflets and pamphlets which surely leads to more of the litter they are supposedly trying to suppress!
