Issue 40 : BSKYBNET

Thanks to everyone who came down to Peace in the Park last month and checked out the Opus/Now Then stage. We had a whale of a time, hosted some great musicians and also raised money for Sheffield Mind and Self Help Africa. We'll see you all next year for more of the same. Doug Pyper returns this month with an article about drug policy and a brief interview with Professor David Nutt, former chair of the government's Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs, who was dismissed in 2009 for stating that ecstasy is statistically no more harmful than horse riding. I would also recommend you read Ben Jackson's piece on real ale in Sheffield and beyond. I'm sure I don't need to tell you that beer is an important part of our heritage, but more than that it is a vital industry and must remain so. Local breweries need your support, so get supping. )
