Has the makings of a good story if expanded, gotta be a Billy Bragg in there!
It has emerged that the Orgreave Colliery Brass Band are to headline at next weeks Thatcherbury Festival.
The senior civil servant charged with planning the festival, Sir Tristan Barrowville of the Cabinet Office announced, “It really is quite frustrating when the Government lands these last minute festivals on Whitehall. At least when we had to put together Squidgyfields at such short notice in 1997 we had the talents of Sir Elton John to call upon. However Sir Elton has a prior commitment on that day in the form of a back, sack and crack wax at Vicki’s Tan and Beauty in St Albans which he is loathe to cancel as David says it is like a slit in a trappers hat down there at the moment” .
Other acts thought to be under consideration included Billy Bragg but his potential involvement was somewhat played down by Sir Tristan, “Bollocks. The Government would need to go through an expensive and time consuming compulsory purchase order to even attempt to get him off Twitter”.
