  1. That's not what wooly means, if anything his estimate was highly precise yet likely innacurate
  2. That is a very wooly statement.
  3. Go on Coronavirus, piss off, sling yer hook ya cun
  4. Does every person at the festival use 1 litre of HS? I guess including the crew before / after it is possible but is seems a lot, also they frequently seem to run out too!
  5. Props for owning that
  6. I'm afraid that technology is still a few years off
  7. Am I the only person who saw this!

  10. Hardly surprising & sorry to everyone for the disappointment, I knew this was coming fora while but it's still a blow.
  11. Yes yes but I haven't actually chosen a narrative, my very close relative is highly involved in the planning and communication of the response to this situation in the UK from a senior role in government and I am party to some insight about what is going to happen next, and everything that I have shared, has been correct so far on here & mainly a couple of other forums. It is quite frustrating that when I am attempting to give people a heads-up from a position of knowledge, it is met with mistrust, denial and dismissal. I guess it is the internet so to be expected. Noone can verify my credentials and there's no way I can do that. Ironically people respond this way, for the reason you stated above because it doesn't agree with their chosen narrative - one of hopeless optimism. I'm more of a realist and thought people would want to know the reality but it seems some would rather bury their head in the ground.
  12. Hello there, we will be coming to the Lake District in 2 weeks. I am more than happy to bring you some chocolates as a cheer-up aid as I have an amount left over. We will probably just go for walks and stay in our accommodation rather than eating out. I am guessing the claustrophobic but quaint atmosphere of the Grassmere gingerbread shop is off the table however which is a downer.
  13. Hahaha 6 acid trips and a gaming PC!!!! Good work enjoy
  14. I guess Because it doesn’t mitigate their financial risk in the way that early cancellation will, and unlike typical reasons for postponing an event, it is a lot less clear that the situation will be resolved by then. Don’t get me wrong I’m gutted, for the first time ever all our friends in our group have a ticket and I’ve had a particularly unpleasant year this year with work and personal issues and have been looking forward to this more than ever. I hope it’s postponed honestly.
  15. Hello there please let me wish you all the best for a speedy recovery. Can I ask, are you taking a multivitamin and staying on top of your nutrition to give your immune system the best chance of fighting whatever you have? Of course there is a small chance you have it but it could be anything else too. You also probably will recover and then be immune and unable to pass it on so stay positive I would seriously try not to worry about it right now, just minimise you energy expenditure and eat and drink well and rest. Don’t go out on your bike or drink alcohol or anything if can be avoided. Do you have anyone locally who can help bring you stuff / food / medicine if needs be? I do have some very high quality boxes of chocolates here left over from work (they were Easter gifts but all our customer meetings are cancelled) and would happily send you some to cheer you up if you wish, pm me your address if you like
  16. My sis works in a senior capacity in this area and was round for lunch today. Spent almost the whole day on work conference calls. All events over 500 people will be banned in a few days. Event organisers who are showing no signs of cancelling are likely holding off for this policy to be officially announced as it will be favourable to them from an insurance / legal POV. Sorry I know it’s not what you want to hear but it’s what is happening now. I’d say in likelihood tickets will cary over as that’s what happens with 99% of other events.
  17. I’m very sorry. I was trying to be lighthearted by calling someone a silly duck but I’m afraid I got it badly wrong In response to another comment I do not believe if the festival goes ahead that people will want to eat batch cooked fudge of unknown origin made by a festival participant so for now I will be putting fudge cooking operations on temporary halt awaiting further news I do have 12x Cadbury’s creme eggs at home that I don’t need for Easter so if anyone wants one let me know once again very sorry about everything and hope a smiley is now ok?
  18. I’m going to laugh in your face in a few days when it’s cancelled you silly duck!
  19. 15 million voters in the U.K. who you have never met and have no idea what motivated them to vote against your opinion, are ‘scum’. Keep thinking like that Labour will die off. Not helpful.
  20. If you think Glastonbury is going ahead this year you are sadly deluded. Sorry that upsets you but it’s not my fault or my decision. I think you could learn a thing or two from the tabloids I’m afraid!
  21. Grow up. Like they’re going to stop people assembling or football forever for fun. It isn’t the Conservative party historically that wants a huge government that reaches out and interferes with everything.
