eFestivals is fund-raising

eFestivals has been here 20 years supporting festivals and festival goers. Without your support it will not continue as it has been.
Advertising used to pay the bills but advertising revenues are much less than they were.

Festivals: if you'd like us to continue to promote your event to our 650,000 monthly readers you'll need to give a helping hand.
Festival-Goers: if every visitor in just one day donated just £2, that would provide funding for a whole year.

You can donate or sign up for 'gold' (ad-free) membership, or you can contact the editor.

  1. Looking forward to watching the Village tonight and slitting my wrists
  2. Yes, my point was that they had principle, the quid pro quo you describe, and they stuck to it
  3. Yes, just like the did with parliamentary boundary changes, for example.
  4. The Lib Dems promised not to something yet, when they got into government, they supported its introduction. If that's not breaking a commitment, I don't know what is. And the Lib Dems are in government, they had the chance to oppose the plans, but chose instead to support them Didn't Labour stick exactly to the pledge you quoted? Repayment of student loans is income related, is it not?
  5. All of that depends on the UKIP vote only being traditional mid-term protest vote. I'm not sure that it is, but time wil tell
  6. I agree with what you say about labour, but I think you're wrong on the Tories. Cameron privately will be shitting himself. There will be pressure in his party to shift to the right in response to UK's success. If they do, it may split the coalition. And if he doesn't shift right, they'll dump him for a new leader. The last thing Cameron wants is an election before 2015
  7. I'd say that it was stretching the definition of "good" beyond breaking point to use it to describe the outcome for the tories. The fact is that the results are poor for all three major parties. Poor for the tories because they've lost ground to UKIP and to Labour. Obviously poor for the Lib Dems. And poor for Labour because an opposition to an unpopular mid-term government ought to be wiping the floor with them.
  8. That's exactly the point, treatment is offered...it should never be imposed, or the patient left to feel that they have no choice. Our recent baby was born at home delayed cord clamping and a physiological third stage were parts of the birth plan. It went really well, but that was in no small part because we had thought about what we wanted and were clear about that with clinical staff.
  9. Me too. On the Saturday.
  10. Pillows and Prayers. Still got my copy - it's got Attila the Stockbroker on it too
  11. it may not be the best way, but it does work
  12. No, he'll be tried for federal offences and, if found guilty, will be executed by the federal government (as opposed to a state government)
  13. The whole point of RSD should be to get people into record shops who don't go regularly, so that would completely defeat he purpose...
