Festivals Drug Free As Nation’s Youth Take Labour MP’s Advice

Or not. Shadow Home Office minister Diana Johnson is in full mum mode this morning, warning young revellers:

“Enjoy the music, but don’t play roulette with your health. My message is simple: if you’re going to a music festival enjoy the music and hope for some sun, but don’t risk your life with a pill.”

Clearly Diana doesn’t want anyone to experience anything more exciting than Tom Watson’s “fragmentary moments of pure music joy in a field in Glastonbury falling in love with a bloke barely in his twenties playing the guitar like a mid-west cyclone”. Wonder what she thinks about votes for 16-year-olds…

      You are wrong Guido. Taking pills is just stupid. Besides the obvious risks of scrambling your brain and storing up health problems there is a very good chance that the pills may contain other impurities.

      Stick to beer or if you must then home grown cannabis.

    Nor do I. Life is quite exiting enough for me.

    Adrenaline is all that I need. Try living a life, not taking time off from it.

    Also avoid middle age lefties wearing round glasses and corduroy trousers offering to expand your mind.
    The only thing they want to expand is your vagina.

    As a youth my son Gordon went to a party and got drunk on house bricks.

    Our Mathew Street Festival (now renamed Liverpool International Music Festival) over the Bank Holiday weekend usually brings 100,000′s in. Usually a great day out and I remember one year when there was only one arrest during the day.

    Pity it’s overshadowed by Notting Hill and Manchester Pride. I suppose it’s ignored by the media because the attendees are hideously white.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
