  1. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    I don't know of anyone who has been "converted" by discussion from one side to the the other. I know a few who have changed voting habits as their personal circumstances were being changed considerably. That's why I tend to avoid talking politics as it usually ends up in the name calling scenario one way or the other.
  2. Lack of facilities and end of Gate D hell

    The warm (20 degree?) heat overnight with it being dry, plus the panic over longer searches and queues helped cause the mad queues I think. We got there early and we're way back from where we usually would be. Moved quick enough and we were set up by 11am but wouldn't have fancied being in it during the mad heat. Fair play to those who endured it
  3. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    Having been in situation where we were almost unable to eat, to being in situation now employing people, I can confirm for me the latter is preferable. However I have more sleepless nights now and more stress worrying about others depending on the business than I did about family depending on me trying to find food to put on the table. I'm guessing that's the point being made
  4. NYC Downlow

    With the amount of class A's consumed it was hard enough finding it at the urinals, never mind in front of a load of folk in a queue for a club. Maybe would've got in half price (or more like quarter price)
  5. Which day do you prefer Wednesday or Sunday ?

    Missed getting out pink 52 by around 2 cars and got stuck there for 2 1/2 hours. Attendant said they were told to clear the others first before letting us move. Our friends had ended up in 53 (just by luck as we arrived at same time) and got straight out. How smug they sounded with their updates as they headed home! Have the mindset it is what it is though so wasn't too stressed ( or hungover as always have a fairly easy Sunday for this exact reason )
  6. Glasto 2020: Passing the torch?

    I'd struggled after 2016 so made a concerted effort to get much fitter and lost 2 stone for this years. Felt much better and still think I could do a bit more beforehand. Will be 45 at the next one, still think I have a few left in me! I did feel a bit wheezy after this one but reckon that was the dust on site
  7. Sexual Assauly at Silver Hayes

    Great idea, I'm going to have a chat with the wife about it tonight
  8. Rude,pushy,aggressive young girls

    The chains of people (mostly girls) holding hands and barging through folk did get on my nerves a bit at times. Almost clotheslining some people as they went past and refusing to break the chain despite it being easier to do so at times. I did want to say to them that in all my years of festival going, anyone lost has always been found and indeed those lost tended to have a great time discovering things away from the main group. The one time I tried I just got scowled at
  9. Sexual Assauly at Silver Hayes

    In clubbing/going to gigs days of around 10 years ago (and more) we used to go out in a big group. The girls in the group nearly always experienced it and sometimes it would result in some of the guys in our group thrown out as they confronted the offenders. Now as a father of two girls under 10, I really worry for them in the future and how to educate them later on how to handle the situations. Sad times. I wouldn't think twice on calling someone out I seen doing it, despite the risk to my own safety. I can understand others not doing so though as there are a lot of idiots out there that can quickly turn violent. More education at an early age needed and more stewards etc needing to be shown what to be looking for and explained to them that they need to step in sometimes
  10. Interesting that there’s not much discussion of Ed Sheeran

    Thought he was a fine way to finish off the festival and done a good job. Wasn't the show Coldplay put on but was better than Mumford and sons closing for me. I was just in front of the sound stages and everyone seemed to be enjoying it immensely. Bit of musical snobbery on the go it seems. The guy is obviously a huge booking going by his worldwide popularity
  11. Banning Picnic Chairs

    There are enough video slots between acts at the main stages to drum in some etiquette to people on all the issues raised, not just chairs but stuff in general. Plus the bonus of an additional couple of tunes rather than the same few!
  12. Best cover version of the weekend

    Liam doing don't look back in anger. Surprisingly good!
  13. Weather 2017

    I think they once said sun when everyone said rain so we liked them. As soon as it's the opposite they go on the other list
  14. New security measures in place

    Not everyone goes back out, and those that do, do so at varying times. If you are in fairly early the re entry will be straight through with increased checking over usual checks
  15. Weather 2017

    Defo take loads of socks, changing them for the late night stuff stops those sweat ridden feet becoming really cold sweat ridden feet
