Brighton to ban homophobic music

I thought "queer" was a definite no-no word?
In my experience it's like the "N" word - those who might be called it can call themselves and others like them it, because then it's 'ironic' but those of us who aren't, can't, because if we did it would be offensive.

If we are to have censorship on music, then can we also ban songs that glrify killing police, white people, black people, any colour people?

But most importantly, can we ban the Spice Girls and James Blunt for attempting or suggesting they murdre tunes?

Is that sung to the tune of 'The Horst Wessel Song'?

from 'pink news'
Banton became notorious for his 1992 song Boom Bye Bye which advocates shooting gay men in the head, pouring acid on them and burning them alive.
You have to admire his thoroughness,

The new licensing rules ban the performance of any music that encourages violence toward minority groups. The council will vote on the proposed new rules later this month.
I thought that straight people were in the minority in Brighton..

"What is really outrageous is that the police in Brighton and elsewhere are failing to prosecute the record stores and radio stations who play these songs, which advocate the murder of lesbians and gay men.

"Inciting murder is a criminal offence. It is appalling that the police forces across the country are not enforcing the law when singers incite the shooting, burning and hanging of queers."
I'd have thought that it wouldn't be important who the target of hate is, it should be just as abhorrent to them that anyone is inciting murder at all, not just against specific freaks of nature, I mean members of society.

seriously? I thought my band "free the paedos" were your support act?

back on topic, I actually think its a good thing, it may lead to the banning of all songs glorifying murder, which in the main is hiphop, this may be our chance to rid the country of this pish.
