Brit Prisons Ban Music

In Britain, if you’re playing a radio or similar device in a communal area, you need to pay for a licence. This has led to small businesses with a radio on in the workshop getting phone calls asking if they’ve paid up yet. The latest casualty of this policy are prisons, which have decided that they can’t afford the licence and have banned the inmates from playing tunage outside their cells. A leaked document rationalised the situation thus: "In view of the high cost, the financial constraints on the service and the likely perception of spending large amounts of money on music for prisoners, the decision has been taken not to purchase a licence." Will they bring back breaking rocks next week?
