I already know that. I'm more interested in the fence/searching/booze/queues/camera angles.
Their FAQ seems to have been considerably expanded:
Lambeth Country Show
And more about that fence:
Given that I watched several people get over the - professionally - erected fence for Field Day / Hoopla with zero bother, I can't see this umm.. fence being much of a challenge. what a bunch of idiots.
I'm sure there'll be ample supplies of Nitrous Oxide inside, provided by young local entrepreneurs.
hopefully the fence will be like this one, and easy to penetrate, whether that means breaking into the show or more importantly passing booze under/over it. Anything more heavy duty makes it so fucking obvious the fence is clearly solely so people dont bring their own alcohol and have to buy it on site.
Is the fence for the fireworks like the one at Field Day?
That question was contained in my email. Will update if I hear anything,
Any news on this?
Did the councillor respond to the requests for him to back up his yarn about the unseen, unreported secret pitched battle between the youths and the cops?
Still waiting for a reply. 11 June is the legal deadline for the Council to respond.
Trying to get answers from Lambeth: Lambeth Country Show 2018: an open letter concerning the fence, alcohol ban and queuing
Ah, he's after a full ban on alcohol.
This 'public order' thing has become quite the meme.
That Pimms bus is such a menace.
It's a slow ride to hell and back....
what a complete wanker.
A quick search on him reveals he is no longer a councillor and lives in Wales so his input is quite irrelevant.
If you read back over ole Bernard’s tweets he asks in the last week if German whiskey is any goood and exclaims “World gin day on Saturday. Something to celebrate”.
But he wants to keep the country fair dry because of non existing public order offences. He’s about what you expect from a Lambeth councillor. None of it good or complimentary.
And now the FOI has been refused.
I'll appeal, and take it to the Information Commissioner if necessary.
I smell bullshit...
With a name like 'Bernard Gentry' it's hard to believe he's not a clever parody. Nominative determinism at its finest (what a c*** btw).
Among the reason to refuse FOI request is this gem:
You couldn't make it up. Orwellian
They are trying to argue it contains sensitive information. Council can redact a report and release it. Leave out individuals names for example.
Well here's a big development: Friends of Brockwell Park express serious concerns about Lambeth Country Show and ask for postponement
As much as I'm against the fencing etc, I wouldn't want it to be postponed. Feels like cutting off your nose to spite your face.
otoh this fence sets a precedent that doesn't need to be set. At the moment there are far more questions than answers. Surely if 10s of thousands are to attend a fenced event the process should be subject to scrutiny, just as FD was. It's ludicrous that there was adequate preparatory information published for that but nothing at all for LCS. Where are the planning and licensing applications and documentation, or is Lambeth as promoter somehow exempt? What is the perimeter of this fence, what's the build schedule, what's the management plan, where are the risk assessments, where's the environmental audit?
Or have I missed a whole tranche of published info?
I've probably said this before, but I still wonder whether this is in some way fallout from the proposal for Lovebox and LCS to share infrastructure. Not necessarily in terms of contracts signed before LB pulled out but perhaps bureaucratic trajectory?
Nope. After my emails, tweets and FB messages were ignored, I posted an open letter on Buzz asking for information, and I've been completely ignored. It's been the same story for everyone else, including the Lambeth Tranquillity group and the Friends of Brockwell Park. Lambeth aren't interested in engaging the community here.
Many suspect that it's just the softener before they introduce charges next year.
