The Shambles Miskin 2007 cancelled ! (97* d) RE: Obit: Miskin 2007 cancelled ! 25 Mar 07


Instead of just venting off in this Mudcat location which can have no effect upon Government/Local Council.

If that were just what I was doing - as you say this would have no effect upon Government/Local Council - so why are you and others so concerned about what I choose to do and say?

I can't help thinking that if all the energy engendered in all this petty division, between those who should all be pooling their talents and pulling together - that these last minute cancellations and the general careless approach taken by our officials towards all forms of folk activites would have ended long ago.

Perhaps it is this approach on our part and our willingness to divide and slag-off and blame each other - that actually causes the the problems that are presented to all forms of folk activities?

Perhaps it is time for us all to be seen to freely share information, help and openly work together?

Perhaps this local authority were expecting themselves and the local press to be swamped with letters from disapointed festival attendees and because this will not happen - as these have been discouraged - there must be a danger that they may consider that no one really cares that the event has been prevented by (it is claimed) "over zealous application of powers embodied in the new licencing act".

For the public have not been informed. A public accusation has been made here about the local athority which blames them for the late cancellation and the public have be asked to accept this and not to to make any similar ones.

I suggest that if the local authority were to be upset and dig in their heels for the future - this accusation from those who do have the full information - will have been enough already to threaten the future of local events.

Being able to vent-off in such accusations against a local authority may not alone help much but it is not a luxury that can be indulged in but denied to others who may feel just as pissed-off about the loss of the event. And even more pissed-off after hearing the public accusation made by the organisers, of where the blame lies.
