Stick to what you know, Bob
Bob Geldof and the usual suspects have issued a vague, unfocused “rallying cry” to the prime minister in order to protect their various vested interests (“‘Voice of British music will be silenced in a self-built cultural jail’”, News, last week). Had the offending open letter dealt with matters such as the crisis in British musical education or the loss of roots music venues due to gentrification, I would have been inclined to take it more seriously.
The pound goes up, the pound goes down. Governments and hairstyles come and go. None of which entitles Geldof to speak either for those of us toiling in the fields of British music or the “people of Europe”. Stephen Parsons Lewes, East Sussex
