Jezfest. For the few, apparently. Not the many.





I'm no fan of Corbyn (especially since his pathetic stance on Brexit) but I think there's a bit of media manipulation going on there. Seen plenty of photos with very large crowds in it.

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

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.

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.

Unsurprisingly, the CWU failed in their desperate attempt to offload free tickets onto me to swell the numbers  ;D

Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind. Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

Think he's had it legally prescribed for a while?  Way ahead of us on this one is Trudeau.  Just needs to sort out his inane employment gender quota policy.
