Don't you just love good old British understatement?

Oh FFS professional orchestral musicians have been using linear attenuation earplugs for years. (You try sitting in front of the brass section.)

Best ones are custom fitted and not cheap but a lot better than going deaf.

Will the punters be issued with these ear plugs? We hired a small ensemble from the Band of The Coldstream Guards for a soiree in west London last year. I had to stuff wet napkins into my ears. The Memsahib went nuts and bit a waitress from Poland.

Is there no protection from these social misfits from this EU of which you speak?
