1. Whatever faults London has, and they are many, it has a wonderful public transport system. You arrive at a bus stop, wait a bit, and a bus comes, maybe a bit less frequently in the wee small hours. Compared with buses 09.00 and 16.30 market days only!

2. I won't publicly hazard a guess at Leadfingers age; but I am certainly a wrinkly, of an age where it is also appropriate to be a grumpy old git. And I am not at all jealous (publicly that is) of his having a pass which works on trains as well as buses!

3. Perhaps you could justify your statement that in terms of folk festivals Leadfingers, Richard and myself, for example, are basically parasites.

4. "If the event was not there then neither would you be! " - true, but we could well be playing somewhere else.



I wonder how many performers at the "official" festival themselves play at fringe venues, or at least did before they had enough paid work?
