Anti-war shirts get the scissor

London, March 7 (AP): The British Broadcasting Corp. today said shots of George Michael’s support musicians wearing anti-war T-shirts will likely be cut from the show.

Michael recorded a cover of Don McLean’s anti-war song “The Grave” on BBC’s veteran music show “top of the pops” yesterday. His cellists wore T-shirts with the logo “no war, (Tony) Blair out”.

A BBC spokeswoman said shots of the cellists’ T-shirts breach the broadcaster’s policy of impartiality.
