Thanks, better this way Ulrich. By the way, the definition of trolling is more extense than the one quoted, and for the record I personally didn't take that comment as insult.

And basically nothing has been done for touring musicians & crews:

QuoteFigures from the live music industry have hit back at the UK government for another "non-announcement" of "spin and misinformation", while arguing that little-to-no progress is being made to solve the Brexit touring fiasco.

Back in August, the government 'announced' that "short term" visa-free travel without work permits will be allowed for musicians and performers in 19 European countries, while talks are ongoing with the remaining nations. This led to a huge backlash from the industry, who accused the government of "spin and meaningless posturing" given that these rules were already in place pre-Brexit, while no real negotiations had been made to solve the major issues. All of this is compounded by today's report that one in three jobs in music were lost during the pandemic.

I've been reading Garry Disher's "Under the cold bright lights".

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/43599436-under-the-cold-bright-lights

Quote from: undefinedAlan Auhl was a homicide detective who took early retirement but has now returned to the police force to work on cold cases. He has an unusual household composed of his student daughter, occasionally his ex wife, several tenants and usually someone in need of a safe place while they sort out their lives.

In contrary to the other books I read by G. Disher, this one is in a more "urban" setting and the main character makes a (morally) questionable decision...

What's the same as the other books: "social realism" and cases which show how bad some human beings can become.

Quote from: undefinedBetween Auhl's several cases, and his complicated personal life, there's a lot going on in this book, but all the storylines are compelling and well-plotted.

Can't help but agree with this!  :smth023

A definition of "trolling":
Quotethe act of leaving an insulting message on the internet in order to annoy someone

As mentioned further above, I don't see it here, as it was a reply to an on-topic comment.

I think it's best to close this topic now, until any official statement will come (and maybe this will never happen).
