Early reports from the Love Music Hate Racism festival today reveal a dour spectacle populated by middle class teenagers and a world apart from the Rock Against Racism carnival it was attempting to celebrate.
The no alcohol dictat left most people sat outside the event with the only booze inside being poxy bottles of Carling at three quid a pop. Typical of an SWP dominated event to ensure that those with the least cannot partake. Still at least Carling made a buck or too.
Meanwhile on the outskirts it was a case of love music, prefer racism as far as the Met were concerned with young black men being routinely stopped and searched throughout the day.
That’s probably not likely to concern the self-congratulatory trots who were massaging their egos from the main stage most of the day.
This event got no end of hits from the free festy listings on this very blog. We won’t be promoting their events again.
