The police have made amendments, when I had first heard about Form 696 the Police wanted not only the details and ethnicity of the performers (including real names and addresses), but also the likely ethnicity of the crowd (obviously with the perceived relation between violent crime and the Afro-Carribean community)
What does this mean to me? Nothing at the moment, but due to there being a room which will include the music listed there is a likelihood I’ll be subject to the form. Due to Cable being in Southwark the council have imposed some really draconian security measures (something that both myself and the club would prefer not to have but will happily abide by to conform to the restrictions). They were brought in due to the high level of gun and violent crime outside some very well known nightclubs in the area.
Either way, read the blog that I put up, it’s very interesting stuff (mostly about the politics of nightclubs/dancing and the fear governments and police have of large groups of people)
