  1. Yoko, with Yo La Tengo as her backing band, was one of the highlights of my 33yr Glastonbury experience to date. The worst? Having to walk past any anodyne, generic garbage such as Arctic Monkeys, Killers, Coldplay, Arcade Fire et al on the way to real music. Best ever GB set? Leonard Cohen. End of debate.

    AOC at Glastonbury?

    Not keen on cherries. Also not going to waste time defending things I already know and am happy with. Not offended, just continually gobsmacked that people, esp the younger generation, fall for Corbyn's rhetoric. They are clearly too young to remember the 70s. The Lib Dems are the only major party calling for a 2nd referendum, standing up for students and defending the worker. Or you can vote for the party of Diane Ab... Ummm...

    AOC at Glastonbury?

    'a man who is readily upset or offended by progressive attitudes' No, that's not me. Not upset by progress, just mindless stupidity by anybody who thinks everyone's entitled to an opinion as long as it agrees with theirs!

    AOC at Glastonbury?

    You had a choice, compromise on one issue (which was being called for by the Universities so they could remain competitive globally) and get the majority of the Lib Dem manifesto through, or side with Labour who refused to get rid of G Brown (a major liability and the sticking point for collaboration) or letting the Tory's run the country by themselves. If the Lib Dems were the winning party then there would have been free edu. But they weren't. Unfortunately the snowflakes looked only at the headlines and not the facts and the background story. Besides which, both Labour and the Tory's were seeking fees, and it was only because of Lib Dem intervention that the payback threshold was set at 21k and not 18k!

    As the ever reliable Wikipedia states: Generation Snowflake, or Snowflake Generation, is a neologistic term used to characterize Millennials andGeneration Z as being more prone to taking offence and having less psychological resilience than previousgenerations, or as being too emotionally vulnerable to cope with views that challenge their own. I stand by my statement, or have I triggered you...?

    AOC at Glastonbury?

    AOC is without any shadow of a doubt one of the least politically knowledgeable politicians on the scene. She is embarrassingly naïve and is perfect for the snowflake brigade who seem to fall for anything where they don't have to employ common sense or reason. If you want to hear common sense and reason I will point you in the direction of the deputy leader of the Lib Dems. A woman who understands what she's talking about and understands the true impact of policy from a social, political and fiscal perspective.
  7. Oasis were nothing more than a pub band that got lucky off the back of Brit Pop, a truely hideous period for music. Whilst I appreciate for some young people it may have seemed refreshing compared to some of the chart rubbish of the 90s, it was cheap pub rock compared to Zep, Sabbath, Purple, Queen, Ramones, Sonic Youth (I could fill a few pages here but won't). A cultural embarrassment, the 'rock' (I employ the word lightly) equivalent of the Spice Girls or Mel and Kim that was hyped to death by the media. It was that period's Darkness. Darkness fans failed to see the group started as a parody, a Spinal Tap for their generation, and actually took them seriously! They must laugh all the way to the bank. Ever get the feeling you've been cheated...?
  8. Bowie's last appearance on the main stage. I was there in 2000 and I have to say this performance (Michael Clark Company) was far more enjoyable. Along with Leonard Cohen this was the joint best event I've witnessed at Glastonbury in the last 33 years.
