The unedifying spectacle of Cliff

Spare us the whining, CliffPrivate Eye (issue 1157) has some choice thoughts on Cliff Richard's copyright whining (via Open Rights Group):

The sight and sound of Sir Cliff Richard pleading for an extension in the 50-year copyright period in sound recordings is an unedifying one. Mainly because it represents a phenomenally successful and rich artist arguing for a law that will benefit him, the complacent record companies and a few other equally successful performers at the expense of less-fortunate acts.

Sir Clifford has also been whining, perhaps more justifiably, about the freeloading Blairs and their hostile takeovers of his Barbados residence.
