That's a crowd of roughly 2,500 people; pathetic for a festival and confirming the predominant narrative that BackwardExtremistFest was a pitiful failure. It's not for nothing that they literally couldn't give the tickets away.
Unsurprisingly, the CWU failed in their desperate attempt to offload free tickets onto me to swell the numbers  ;D

I heard 13,000.  I suppose political events are not as popular as a major rock act coming to town. I'd like to see the kind of audience May, Gove and Rees Mog could attract. Johnson would probably headline for his renowned comedy act.

The Financial Services Ombudsman has arrived at their final decision in my complaint against AXA PPP. Despite upholding my complaint, in part, the prescribed course of action would potentially leave me hundreds of pounds worse off (it's complicated!). For that reason, I have not accepted their decision and, presumably, that will be the end of the best part of eighteen month's worth of wrangling. Had they dealt with it in a timely fashion rather than trying to convince me I hadn't a case, they may have been more use than a chocolate teapot >:(

Funnily enough Jeremy Vine posted a brief video of a horse being spooked by cyclists today. Absolutely appalling.

Saw this courtesy of my wife, absolutely shocking! Undertaking a horse. It was a triathlon, the people should be banned/reported etc

Could you share one? And what's a large crowd for a festival?

Brexit is probably the one thing I can't fault him for, at least he's not trying to kick the voters in the teeth.








I found it quite interesting that it was a lot easier to find pictures of a relatively empty field which seem to have been taken before the event got going than the ones above.


Didn't quite match the predominant right wing narrative I suppose

You are alright.  Really nice to catch up on Friday.
Was good to see you and a great show too!


Safe travels this week and enjoy!

City types, probably never seen a real horse before.
