Music organisations are restoring visa-free touring in the EU. Dorries steals the credit

Nadine Dorries: she likes to take credit. Shame she doesn’t deserve it.

How do you like the nerve of the Culture Secretary?

Nadine Dorries (the people of Mid Bedfordshire must be so proud of her) has tried to take credit for the hard work of LIVE, the Association of British Orchestras and others who have been working hard to cut the red tape that her government has wrapped around musicians from the UK who want to perform in EU countries.

What motivates people like her to lie so brazenly?

Will she try to convince us that God told her to do it?

    The fascist tories and their little dictator fascist duck johnson are responsible for removing visa free musician tours within the EU!! Duck johnson was so keen to have little england leave the EU he didn’t care about the appalling effect this would have on touring theatre companies, classical orchestras, ballet companies etc all of whom now can no longer tour within the EU because there is a limit to number of days they can enter an EU country. Also each EU country requires these companies to pay large sums for said visas etc.

    But then the fascist tories have no concept of theatre, music, ballet or opera because their sole obsession is stealing our public money and using it to increase their bloated wealth!

      Well, the tours are back on in 21 of the 27 EU nations, but only because of the work of organisations like those named in the article.
