  1. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    But still widely regarded as an astounding success. The bigger win is turning the tide away from me me me conservatism towards a social democratic future.
  2. Workers Rights at Glasto under Question

    But he is spot on. You yourself are expressing a belief. You argue that I should not critique GFL or CWL and because other people know better. But you have no actual knowledge of this 'better', no evidence to offer, only blind belief. Debate with me if you want to but don't try to close me down for your belief. (Expecting the downvotes again from those active on the other thread. I would truly appreciate some reasoning)

    Thanks DeanoL for the downvote. Trying to silence me?
  4. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    Do you mean the 'vile,abusive,threatening' grammar? I blame Gove!
  5. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    You forgot 'plain stupid'
  6. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    Apparently he is gaining quite a social media following. That worries me. I can only hope he gets called out for his odious views but more likely he will become a hero for the ukip voters who are now looking for a new hero.
  7. Workers Rights at Glasto under Question

    I'm far from a hero but thanks anyway. I completely share your puzzlement as to the contrast between the two threads.
  8. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    I'm guessing you're not a fan :-) Being serious for a moment I was sickened by some of the applause he was getting on QT last night, particularly regarding cutting the foreign aid budget.

    Jacob Rees-Mogg would be a great booking! As a Victorian throwback he should feel quite comfortable looking down on the (literally) 'great unwashed'.

    Your original post was emotive and opinonated, not observational. Mr Tease's response seemed appropriate. Perhaps you should restate your observations and the question you are asking if you are findling the responses are not helping you.
  11. Does anyone have a spare programme?

    Have you asked the festival, I wouldnt be suprised if they had loads left given the piles I saw still at Gate A when I left midday on Monday. Have a great wedding day.
  12. Workers Rights at Glasto under Question

    I lack your confidence in GFL, its a large orgaisation with many competing priorities. I would feel more comfotable if Critical Waste, who depend greately on casual labour, made a statement and also had a published ethical policy towards their staff. The so called 'gig economy' is overall beneficial to big business and disadvantagous to the workers. It should be challenged, particulaly when linked to an organisation that expouses and practices strong ethical behaviour in other areas. I wonder if OFP is out of votes yet?
  13. Workers Rights at Glasto under Question

    OFP you just look stupid downvoting me. Move on.
  14. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    It's caled 'progressive politics' traditionally the domain of the left. Torys are most welcome, but don't expect the rhetoric of the festival to change to suit your views, expect your views to be challenged by the festival.
  15. Workers Rights at Glasto under Question

    Nothing I have read hear indicates that anyone has detailed knowledge of the nature of the contracts involved. Loads of speculation, sure, but no actual knowledge. If you do know perhaps you could fill me in. When did Critical Waste take on the litter picking contract? What is their scope? Is there a bonus system? Is there a risk sharing arrangement? Who recruits the staff and what promises are made by the recruitments agencies? Have these promises changed over time? It is possible to run ethical cost effective profit making businesses. I have my doubts about CWT and I feel that GFL are turning a blind eye (yup, there I go again criticisng GFL - how many downvotes do you think I'll get?).
