From Gillian MH

I guess it's that time of year when we howl into the wind about the issue of amplified busking. Having held the square to ransom for many years, the problem has now drifted down Bridgegate, spreading as far as Pol car park. Perhaps one of our newly elected councillors will help find a solution, but I won't hold my breath.

Keep plugging away, Gillian. The Square belongs to us all. It's not just here, lots of towns and cities have whole squares and meeting places where egotistical performers turn up recorded music and blast their voices over everyone else. The quality varies, I enjoy some duos and unplugged musicians but I would like to be able to tune into what my mates are saying or read in peace. Turn down the din!

Another day of working in HB on a hot day with all the windows shut to reduce the horrendous noise. 

Who wants this in the square?

How do the cafes and residents feel? 

I have a blinding headache and am heading home for the day. I feel very sorry for those who live in the square and are trapped with this.

Is this amplified busker wailing Robbie Williams "Angels" the worse and most talentless yet?
