Is it just me, or are more and more individuals using public transport to air their cultural slants on an unsuspecting public. It is now extremely rare to get on a bus in London without somebody interrupting your journey with their tedious, monotone drivel. I was thinking about this as my journey to a local hostelry was once again interrupted by some music that makes Stockhausen sound like Debussy. If someone is playing music over a loudspeaker in a public area, should they be liable to pay money to the PRS, as they do not have the artist's or Composer's permission to play it. Would it make sense to ensure that anyone who downloads music from the Internet, be made to pay a fee, as all bands have to when playing park gigs etc. This is certainly a Draconian measure, but the only other alternative is for me to join them and blast out Radio 3 and see if they like my choice of music. The answer is obviously that they won't, and they probably wouldn't possess the required level of intelligence to realize they were being ridiculed. Answer on a postcard to the usual address.
