    Default Tory Glastonbury

    Not really like Glastonbury though is it: Conservative MP launches 'Tory Glastonbury' after Jeremy Corbyn's success on the Pyramid Stage | The Independent

    George Freeman wants to establish the event for party activists and their families as way to bolster the Conservatives' dwindling grassroots support.
    ...
    But the centrist Norfolk MP Mr Freeman said: "Why is it the left who have all the fun in politics?"
    His plan for a "Conservative Ideas Festival", a one-day event to be held in September, would be less grand and is unlikely to attract titans of rock like The Foo Fighters and Radiohead.
    Instead, Mr Freeman who said he envisions the Conservative Ideas Festival as a "cross between Hay-on-Wye and the Latitude festival".
    ...
    A project team of more than 20 people, including 10 MPs, is working on Mr Freeman's event, which will be invitation-only with between 150 and 200 attendees, some of whom will camp.
    ...
    One sympathetic Conservative MP told the FT the idea was "very trendy" but would need "a lot of expensive booze" for him to attend.
    Did someone mention 'out of touch"?
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Imagine how many it would have taken before the austerity cuts...

    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

    They've confirmed the headline act.
