I've done Glastonbury on a (free) corporate ticket.

Re: DLT verdict

Hmmmmm
Compare the attitude of the police in this case (massive effort to secure conviction at any cost) to their attitude when dealing with the 'industrialised ' trafficking, torture, rape and assault of hundreds of young girls in Rotherham - [more]

Excel unprintable chars, make visible??
