    Like he said, he was asked a question and he answered it, he didn’t send out a press release.

    Nah, if he’s asked he can answer. You can have complaints with small issues at the same time as the big ones. I see where Williamson is coming from, but I don’t think Idles really sing about being poor do they? Feels a bit like he’s weakly accusing them of something like “champagne socialism”. I don’t know anything of Idles background, but if they are more middle class I do see why he could find it frustrating that they’re finding success on a Punk for the Many type platform. Not really their fault though, I think they’re sincere, which is the important thing. Sleaford Mods are the better band but I do think sometimes he doesn’t realise they’re actually pretty weird and always going to be a niche concern.

    Thanks for clarifying. I actually think that needs to be said far more than the grooming stuff. We all know grooming is wrong and nobody disagrees. It’s being investigated and there’s nothing to discuss. The other stuff requires a conversation and to be seen as more than just bad but legal behaviour, as many still do.

    Good, yes, thanks for quoting what he said to reiterate my point... What with this and thinking Noel is playing 2019, you’re really having trouble reading things correctly these days

    Saying one thing isn’t shocking and another is “the issue”, singular, clearly means the first isn’t an issue. The minor stuff is irrelevant in this conversation really, as everyone agrees that’s wrong, but the other stuff is also completely unacceptable and should not be seen as normal, regardless of how common it is.

    Nah, you’ve made it pretty clear that’s what you think

    I don’t really care how bad it is compared to other rock stars, I just think it’s a lot worse than you seem to.

    The number of women who never get justice because they can’t prove it, or are too scared to come forward because of fear they won’t be believed, far, far, far outweighs the number of powerful men who have their careers ruined by the testimony of several lying women (are there any examples of that at all?), so I’m comfortable with accepting their story with the “evidence” that we have.

    We’re not talking about the law though. We’re believing the accounts of several women which corroborate evidence of similar behaviour. He could be found innocent of all crimes but I still believe their account of his behaviour and wouldn’t support him again (not that I ever have tbf).

    The fundemental difference seems to be that we believe the women and you want “proof”, though what kind of proof you’re looking for I don’t know. He can have an album if someone wants to put it out, and he can try and tour if someone wants to put him on, but we can call him out on what he’s done and refuse to contribute to his career in any way.

    Exactly this. You can’t separate the two because they’re both part of the same problem. jyoung, you’re right, don’t worry. A lot of people just don’t want to get dragged into this same old arguments you’re talking about because we’ve been over it all before.

    It was Sawdusty Surfer wasn’t it? Not sure exactly what he does but he’s worked in the general Green Fields area for years I believe.

    Yeah I’m thinking the distance is calculated from the pedometer, which could be affected by stuff like clapping. It says I did 42 miles over the weekend and I saw loads of acts at many stages, but am quite a lazy clapper.

    Big up all the lads defending the man in his 40s attempting to fuck a 15 year old cos she said she was 18, you keep fighting the good fight.

    If you’re capable of separating it then that’s fine, I don’t think we should be forcing people to stop liking art they previously liked. I was just saying it’s no coincidence that guys who abuse their power and treat women over 18 badly also prey on underage girls. He’s not the only one who will abuse their power whether it’s illegal or not.
