NOT QUITE A VICTIMLESS CRIME: The Association of United Recording Artists has discovered a bit of a hole in its books, having just dismissed its director Peter Horrey citing "significant financial regularities." The company, which gathers royalties from radio play, seems to have been diddled out of seven hundred thousand quid, according to chairman Stephen King. That's quite a huge figure, seeing as it only takes in about two million a year, quite an large proportion to disappear without anyone noticing. Amongst the people who may find they've been ripped off is Robbie Williams, which is the silver lining in the cloud.
