Disappointing news that the Mathew Street music festival in Liverpool is to be cancelled just a few months before the city is the European City of Culture. The reason: Health and Safety. What a shambles.

As my old pal Ian Hamilton Fazey says: "So how much were these London-based health & safety consultants paid to tell the council this? Did they consult the Director of Public Health of the political and economic consequences of shooting yourself in the foot? (No point in shooting yourself in the head of course it has no effect on the gormless). "
