Hippie Bouncers at Hippie Festival Threaten Hippie

At Glastonbury:

One of the campaign group members said: “That was totally over the top. He threatened to hit me.”

It\’s what bouncers do with unruly members of the crowd mate.

  1. So Much For Subtlety

    That’s what Hippy Bouncers might do. In my neck of the woods they tend not to give people time to prepare. They go from mildly minding their own business to throwing you out. As they should. Next time they should put this guy on the ground and drag his sorry arse out before he has a chance to realise what has happened.

  2. It brings to mind Henry Kissinger’s quip about the Iran-Iraq War: “it’s a shame they can’t both lose.”

  3. The Telegraph article points out that U2 are Irish. So UK Uncut are demanding that bands who are neither resident nor domiciled in the UK should pay tax to the UK or their non-UK income?
    ER???
    Does the twit think that it would have been better if the security guard had called two pop-loving psychiatrists to have him sectioned?
    @ Julia M
    You wouldn’t *really* be the first – years ago Ian Hislop asked about the Hamilton-Al Fayed libel case said “UI want them both to lose”

    Tim adds: Strange that I should defend a bunch of wankers like Art Uncut but no…..they are claiming that Irishmen living in Ireland should pay taxes in Ireland.

    That they are wankers should be obvious, for they are not demanding that the artists’ exemption from Irish income tax be lifted (yes, it still exists). Only that rich artists should pay tax.

    John77 – “The Telegraph article points out that U2 are Irish. So UK Uncut are demanding that bands who are neither resident nor domiciled in the UK should pay tax to the UK or their non-UK income?”

    While not wanting to detract from the twittery of UKUncut one little bit, it is worth pointing out that at least half of U2 is, in fact, (speak it quietly), English. Adam Clayton is undeniably so – born in Oxfordshire even. David “The (more pretentious than Bono) Edge” Evans was born in Essex but claims to be Welsh. The only two born in Ireland rejoice in the not-particularly-Irish names of Paul “Bono” Hewson (whose Father was called Brendan so probably was Irish. His mother was a Church of Ireland Protestant though) and Larry Mullins. Mullins I will give some credit to.
