BRIGHTON SORT-OF BANS HOMOPHOBIC MUSIC: Well, last night's council meeting in Brighton introduced a sort-of ban on homophobic music. We're not quite sure what the point is, or indeed, how it will work: do they now appoint an officer to listen to all the records on offer in Churchill Square and issue polite requests if they don't measure up? It's not really a council's job to tell local record shops what they can and can't stock: while some guidance might be one thing, a totally fatuous and unenforceable ban helps nobody.
