Gordon Brown breaks the law

Perhaps the least of his worries tonight, but Gordon Brown's been accused to being part of an event which breached licensing laws. The one with the Elvis impersonator:

A performance at the weekend by Brighton-based Elvis impersonator Mark Wright took place at Lodge Park Technology College in Corby as part of a lunchtime speech given by Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

But, according to the [Live Music Foundation], the move contravened the council’s own rules because the venue's premises licence only allows entertainment from 6pm until midnight.

Corby council say that it was fine, because the pretend Elvis doesn't count as music - he was "incidental", apparently. So that's alright then. Apparently.
