What do buskers sound like when they protest?
Attending a busking protest in the soaking rain of a dark Monday evening outside Camden tube station was a delight. It was an event of such unbridled surprise that you couldn’t help but smile. A council passing legislation over buskers and their right to sign a song in the street with a guitar or not feels like the final act of a lunatic. The protest organised against it was filled with stalwarts of the lunatic fringe that were being legislated against.
Sadly, the council passed its bill without giving itself any kind of strong talking to over what it had just done.
