Illegal gatherings shocker

Vile enemies of the State, yesterday

Over the bank holiday weekend, some young people gathered, without permission and had some unauthorised fun. They cleared up the mess, no one died or was injured and all have now left.

The Police are absolutely furious.

While the event was peaceful, it was also illegal....

"The natural beauty of the north Wales area has, on occasions, led itself to the unfortunate seasonal phenomenon of open air gatherings where loud music is played and which many young people attend.

"Events of this type are illegal unless they are licensed and the organiser has complied with his or her lawful requirements.

"Illegally-held events are a nuisance to the local community and are, through their lack of organisation and regulation, quite frankly dangerous.

"The regulation is there for a purpose and in the main ensures that attendees at an event are kept safe."

He said the police response may include arresting those who attend the events.

"On the whole human beings want to be good, but not too good, and not quite all the time." -George Orwell
"Those who choose to ignore licensing and safety regulations for such events will be dealt with robustly, and may find themselves facing court action and ultimately, imprisonment." said a leading member of the outer Party yesterday at IngSoc HQ

the sooner we have elected Police Chiefs, the better...

Those chicks will do thanks. A little scruffy but I'd rather party with them than the Gestapo anyday.

Police furious, more like 'worried' as events like this prove all that fucking legislation was never 'needed' in first place.

Reminds me of that 'hug a stranger' trend that started happening in loads of countries. The police cracked down on it, the state doesn't like the cattle mixing like that.

North Wales - isn`t that the lair of that prime four-letter-type Brunstrom?

Pembrokeshire is in South Wales, which is nowhere near North Wales. Brunstrom hasn't been Police Chief in North Wales for many months. And the taxpayers have had to foot the £3,500 cost of cleaning up after these muppets. I suspect the people that think it is wonderful would be the same ringing the police constantly if it took place near to where they lived.

Elected police chiefs won't solve this non-problem. We already have police authorities whose members include elected councillors.

Its a non-problem because the police don't make law they implement it. So go back one step and change the licensing and safety regulations instead. They might be a bit heavy handed but that's not because the police chief is not elected.

Licensing regulations that require every site to fill in a long form with the personal details of all musicians when they apply for a license to put on any kind of live music are the kind of things that need to be changed.

Here's another selective quote:

"Some £100,000 worth of sound equipment was seized at the Pembrokeshire event."

That should just above cover the cleaning up bill then. You muppet.

I'll assume that the 2500 who attended are not taxpayers then shall I?

A little selective in your 'opinion' of what happened here OH aren't you? Or did you just 'assume' that everybody just tidied away after themselves (fat chance) etc etc

While I agree that it's ridiculous for the police to leap into action over every event like thgis, it's also very boring to have you moralising over it with a load of made up 'facts'

Will you be gracing Strawberry Fair OH?

Polite but dead lazy old git said...

OH: All very interesting, but it would make life a lot easier for your readers if you could please make the links (from both yourself and commenters) clickable. I suspect many folks, like me, can't be bothered to copy and paste all these links when elsewhere a simple click will do the work for us. plesae ponder on't.

Indeed I shall be at Strawberry fair

if it is true about the rubbish then of course that is not to be condoned..

but...it's back to the old control thing again......

when the rave scene started 20 years ago the authorities shit themselves because lots of young people,myself included,didn't like the corrupt westminster scumbags treating everyone with disdain and enslaving them.....so nothing has changed in two decades!

lots of false flags were hoisted...it was always about 'safety' and 'drugs'....

but people taking E are actually very friendly and do not drink alchohol.which of course really upset the establishment as they were losing out on ££££.....

people coming together,in peace,with a cause,really does get the authorities worried........

whatever next? people not wanting to be enslaved by a national debt ?

Doesn't look that cleared up to me, not sure I'd want 2500 people shitting in my garden

They should have said they were "travellers". Been left to their own devices then

Catflap said...

Being a man of a certain age I don't want young people having fun.
Especially because fun is all they seem to do these days.
Fuck em.
It is my turn to be a miserable cunt.

First free concert l went to was Hyde Park ... yes, the Hyde Park. l was 16 l think. Bands were Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, T rex amongst others. Happy Days!

Best of luck to the kids nowadays and hope they keep doing it. Better than the other crap they call festivals today like Glastonbury. £200 for a ticket, £75 for campervan and you get penned in and herded like sheep. F##k that!

Nice to see the cheese rolling went ahead though.

Jess The Dog said...

Sod em. I visit that part of the world quite frequently, camping, walking, kayaking and drinking. Don't want a bunch of ravers wrecking the place and leaving rubbish. Bad enough in Scotland where chavs leave beer cans and rubbish all over the place in the national parks. Fcuk them. Make the six arrested pay the three grand before letting them out. Freedom has responsibilities.....

Kit said...

The best way to deal with stupid laws is for as many people as possible to ignore them so that they become unenforcible.

Just like the 'banned' cheese rolling that is too dangerous for the police to allow (since when did we need the polices permission to do anything?) Good to see all the people turning up to do it even without all the 'organisers' and the police being forced to stand back and watch.

Magic said...

Not heard about this kind of thing for over 15 years. In the early-mid 90s, the Conservatives were often irked by this kind of thing, (albeit, in hindsight, the place wasn't as clean, and the music was loud), i.e. organized raves, and they set about banning rave music. From this, The Prodigy created Music For The Jilted Generation, which proved to be a great album, and sold copies by the shedload. Now, I am not advocating that everyone should create/attend an illegal rave (Can't stand it, myself), but if the Conservatives/Police are getting their knickers in a twist over this kind of thing, we'd be no better of under them, than Labour.

So you may face a court of law and a prison sentencve for organising a largeish picnic with some stupid licence? Bloody outrageous that in a supposed free country and free society we have this nonsense, all in the name of safety. Bollocks. All in the name of police overtime to supervise the crowd, harrass them and search them for drugs.

Agree about electing chief constables.

Sorry peeps - this is utter shit. They had this "do" on a sheep-farm - private land & the farmers were genuinely worried about their flock (not surprising given the margin on lamb these days). The "party-goers" also literally left shit all over the place - lovely. Sorry, I hate the police/authority as much as most people on here, but you need to be realistic - there is a massive difference between libertarianism & anarchy. If I had been the farmer, I may have got my 12 bore persuader out of the cupboard.

Meanwhile, the organisers of the Radio 1 Big Weekend left a hell of a mess in the surrounding area, which the council have also had to clean up - will they be in trouble too?
