@PirateSlayer: 'As for banning the English bobby from pointing out Buckingham Palace, I think it is more like banning the London Bobby from pointing out the local stolen goods fence...or someone who knows him.'
Ha ha ha ha. And what did the forebears of the occupants of Buckingham Palace do if not steal the whole firkin country from its freeborn inhabitants, and hand it all out to their best mates to be leased back to householders.
Do welders get paid royalties every time you ride a train they assembled? Does my dentist get paid a royalty every time I eat with my healthy teeth? Do software developers with their ageist career paths get royalties every time someone uses the application they developed for their employer? Its time 'artists' were paid when they actually play their instruments, and then this celebrity/star freakshow can be ended once and for all.
