OK yah....Glastonbury 2013
Actually that's not quite fair, because half the tickets have gone to BBC employees, under the guise of broadcasting requirements. With 250 hours of "Glasto" coverage - even during Songs of Praise - the people's broadcaster (sic) now needs fifty thousand executives (plus the odd cameraman) to be present so that we can all watch wealthy old socialists, who used to appear on Top of the Pops in the 1960s, croak out their songs of revolution for the Range Rover 'n' Grouse Moor Brigade.
Glastonbury is a great opportunity for the braying hordes of Eton from both Broadcasting House and the City to meet up again and take large amounts of drugs. And with this year's coverage pushing the cocaine bill beyond all previous records, expect the television license fee to double, PDQ.
