    I've just had a phone call from Dub and police with dogs are going up and down the queues at Glastonbury specifically by the coaches.

    Many people have been nicked all ready. :(:mad:

    This has been a public service announcement. Be careful kids. :cool:

    Hollis bloody furious

    I dunno.. is this the Avon & Somerset Constublary's own Sniffer Dog squad, or are they taking the ones from London away for a nice weekend in the country?

    Hmm... glasto's turned into virgin festival etc in most other ways so why is this surprising?

    I got a bit fucked off (when as a much younger and more angry man) at v2000 when i blagged some tix, and then got told *exactly* where i had to pitch my tent. then i got told i had to drink virgin cola..... they had dogs there, fortunatly id left my stash in the car.

    fast forward a coupla years and hey presto - im being told i have to buy budweiser at glasto (even backstage - tho that was at least free)....

    the things gone to shit - everyone knows it. any festy that u have to enter some kinda lottery, spend shedloads on the mobile, or be super net-savvy - then a looks contest (ok im exagging a bit now) fuckin sucks tho... i hated it last time.... never again..

    donnington - the metal one, is the dogs bollox now i reckon. download i think its called. now thats a party... :D

    Bristol's Ashton Court isn't far off going that way by the looks of things .. especially now it's being repackaged as "family-friendly".

    You would think the cops could do something better with their time than stopping people smoking ganja. (which, being very smelly, presumably accounts for 99 percent of sniffer dog detection)

    and i got 'sniffed' by a doggie at Strawberry fair, who failed to sniff out the gram of MDMA in my pocket

    There is a large multi-agency sniffer dog breeding/training establishment near Bristol. Glastonbury would be a good training exercise for them.
     
  15. Does anyone know if sniffer dogs can smell drugs that have been wrapped up 3 times in tin foil and immersed in a shampoo bottle etc?

    I doubt it but I daresay the police are very grateful for all the information given on internet forums as to where people hide drugs.
     
  17. Well don't quote my post then innit.

    This sort of thing has been posted many times before, it won't be the first they've heard of it. And anyway they can't exactly go and empty out everyone's bottles of shampoo/creams etc

    Jeepers. That's a bit harsh. I always thought Mr Eavis was staunchly against things like sniffer dogs.

    I guess the size of the event and license ramifications and blah blah means it's abit out of his hands :(

    Why would anyone take shampoo to a festival? If I was a copper searching someone & they had shampoo I'd nick em just for that.

    Spion I hear ya

    dunno, but my recipe for sniffer dog avoidance would be to leave the stuff lying around for ages somewhere to lose it's odour. I recently flew to the US followed by 2 internal flights there. I got to Wisconsin and discovered a small bag of weed in my wallet :eek: :D

    I've know people who wash their hair at festivals.

    I would not put a bet on it never happening, especially with liquid explosives and terrorism being flavour of the month.

    It may come as a shock but Glastonbury is not given diplomatic immunity from the law.

    Really? Wow! Thanks for pointing that out to me you pedantic fucktard.

    I was talking to a girl last week who was planning on shaving her legs at Glasto! :D

    Christo a bit corporate

    they were also doing this en masse at Paddington Station yesterday evening, loads of them lining the route to the train, leading of lots of poor people to a special hut they'd set up...

    Well it does because the times I have been there there was a live and let live approach from the police. First Strawberry fair and now this - don't the pigs have anything better to do?

    The past is one thing, since all aspects of licencing responsibility passed to local authorities things have changed, whatever the event.

    no-no Small robot you know

    Glastonbury has become a kak hole. At least they aren't attack dogs like they had at the Phoenix fest years ago. They had moody bouncers and their dogs patrolling between the two fences.

    We camped up near the fence and were entertained all weekend watching fence jumpers getting their ankles mauled, so not all bad.

    The dogs were all sorts of breeds too, looked like the bouncers had brought their "pets" along.
