Hay Festival 2008

Mud glorious mud....that's the reason for no blogs. Can't carry the laptop along with wellies, umbrellas, cagoules etc to the Festival site from the carpark without getting soaked.

Today the rain has stopped but they have closed all the car parks because the fields are now deep in mud ( yesterday you were only allowed in one if you had your wellies on). So have found a free Wi Fi site in the Granary restaurant this evening and, more important, a car park space.
The police are busy sticking parking fine tickets on all the cars parked on the Llanignon road which I think is a bit steep since there is literally nowhere to park.

Oh yes we had a citizen arrest on the Festival site last night. George Moinboit tried to grab the former US American ambassador John Bolton to the United Nations on his part in the illegal war in Iraq.

He had primed~Brecon police and the media beforehand so everyone was prepared.
