  1. I'd not actually read the booklet that came with the ballot paper - it makes interesting reading doesn't it? [for those not with a booklet - it is also under the candidates on the Labour Party website: http://www.labour.org.uk/pages/labour-party-leadership-election-2016 ] Basically party CLP groups - the people who vote for the parliamentary party - nearly all (apart from shop workers, GMB, and a handful of others) have said they support Corbyn - there's almost a full page of them, compared to a full lines for Smith. Conversely the Parliamentary party nearly all are lined up under Smith (nearly half a page), with just a few on the Corbyn side (he doesn't have to list them). Pretty clear which way this will go the party is going to split - the parliamentary party want one thing (we already know this) the CLPs another - it won't be a happy ending
  2. The Stone Roses would have to be pretty dire to be as bad as the last two times Oasis played Glastonbury. They were absolutely shockingly bad, only in 1994 where they any good at all.
  3. yup it's usually the same field
  4. anyone looking at their voting slip and just thinking "what's the sodding point?" I don't think either of them stand any chance at all against an electorate happy to have voted in the Tories, left their sanity with the scientists, and voted to stuff the country with Brexit.
  5. I'd rather watch Nikki Hill than Axl Rose
  6. I can definitely hear her influence in Cate Le Bon particularly the stuff she started out doing a few years ago
  7. though Dumpstaphunk, and Nikki Hill would be great
  8. Forinstance last year's first announcement was The National, Ali Campbell (with Astro and Mickey Virtue), Joe Bonamassa, City and Colour, Tedeschi Trucks Band, The Cat Empire, Willie Nelson's son Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, The Word, Rhiannon Giddens, Janiva Magness, St Paul and The Broken Bones, Allen Stone, The Selecter, Shakey Graves, and Songhoy Blues.
  9. If you look at thewir line-ups from previous there's not many that end up at Glastonbury - shame as I've always thought it would be great to have them.
  10. the mother has gone - onwards and upwards
  11. They once considered having a North and south version didn't they?
  12. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/aug/16/grouse-shooters-kill-first-casualty-is-truth-astroturfing-botham-rspb-packham?utm_source=&utm_medium=&utm_campaign= This is how, in a democracy, you win when you are outnumbered: you purchase the results. It’s how politics now works. The very rich throw money at the parties, lobby groups and thinktanks that project their demands. If they are clever, they keep their names out of it. .....
  13. well hello - been some time

    well, I'd forgotten all about this until Z printed off one of my blogs on here and handed it to me in the week. I think Facebook kind of took over for angst, but is actually less expressive so I thought I'd return. I'm not really doing much treading water as the arachnoid cyst and the brain connections continue to bug the hell out of my life with noisy tinnitus and balance issues - worsened by more recent labyrinthitis (probably from the neural feedback shorting out as it gets more blocked/damaged). Half the time I forget I've got anything wrong me - which leads to quizzically asking K why my archery (I've kept that up over the years along with going to festivals, and working at eFest Towers) has gone to pieces. At the moment I have breathing issues too (pile it on fates why dontcha?) following a bad case of flu with effects the lymphatic system - K far worse than me this time around. I lost my tankard at a very muddy Glastonbury so can look forward to dropping a few pints at Beautiful Days (literally). Z is about to move out to her own place up the road, and so it'll just be me, IK and the cat rattling around here (again literally in my case). I just noticed it's 10 years since my post on here where I was first diagnosed and given a decade so it's all good (keels over and dies)
  14. Wikileaks leak 3,000+ Soros documents: ttp://soros.dcleaks.com/
  15. Whilst Corbyn is wrong to say the Trots have not invaded the Labour party they clearly have, are muscling in at Labour meetings and have a clear agenda to make "Corbyn their man" with bullyish tactics, I'm not particularly impressed with the Torygraph's unclear linking to Labour's 1988 campaign calling for "complete rehabilitation" of Leon Trotsky. It's this very document that the Trotskyists believe make Corbyn "their man" - the sooner it's made clear it isn't their party and they should fuck off back to the Communist party the better. It was around nine months ago Mendelson brought this to light this very document and had the trots jump behind Corbyn in the first place - without it coming to light, it may have been easier to replace him. I'd like to stick an ice-pick in half of them. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3250578/Mandy-Corbyn-s-Marxist-conman-elected-symbol-not-leader.html
