Coming soon to a festival in the UK ??

37
Found 2nd Aug 2017
Shocking news that future festivals in Sweden are being cancelled due to the high amount of sexual assaults or the possibility of female only festivals are being looked at.

How long before this comes to the UK?

Y Not festival in matlock thus weekend was a complete farce.. I think UK festival organisers have a lot to learn.

Each link is a separate festival where this has occurred in the last month.

Something tells me its not the indigenous male population causing the problem. Sweden has been destroyed by immigration and one religion of immigrants in particular.
Yet so left-wing they rather blame to women for being sexually assaulted rather than the perpetrators.
Amazingly same people migrating from the same parts of the world arriving on-masse in Germany/Austria and the same sexual assaults and issues arising. Rarely reported by the left wing media because we wouldn't want to upset the immigrants.

Wonder why this has just started happening? we have been holding music festivals in Europe for centuries without any problems, its time we sorted out the problem rather than trying to treat the symptoms.

Put it this way.. once my daughter is old enough to go to a festival with her friends you can bet that I'll be going along with them!
Other governments need to learn from this..
I know the UK is one of the safest places at the moment.. but then again so was Sweden..

Dude we are so scared to offend we will sit back and watch it happen with the left-wing protecting the rights of predators and their cultural beliefs.
Trump was right...

Look at what is happening in Sweden...

I am now afraid.


I fear for safety my daughter, my sister, my mother, my wife and my female friends.

I am fearful of males, ESPECIALLY those with a foreign passport.

I am guessing that's the response the originators of stories like this want.

Unfortunately like a Jedi mind trick stories like this work on a certain type of person.

As far as I can tell from the links... this is one festival in one country....

I wouldn't panic just yet.

My thoughts are with the victims though.

I don't think Jedi's have anything to do with raping 15 year olds.. Not sure what sick parody you may have been watching..
Maybe the spelling of wars was a little different
Or are you saying if you wear a short skirt and drink at a festival your asking for it?

AS for originator of the story.. They originated from FACT.. feel free to find out yourself.

Not entirely true in the past getting groped was just all part of being female you where expected to put up with those things, forcibly kissed, grabbed at etc happened pretty much to every female at some time. But now with more equality these things are taken more seriously, the same applies for what counts as rape, the link there says about a woman who changed her mind, years ago calling that rape would have been unheard of and all the drunks and drugs at festivals would have meant any such accusations would have been ignored by police.


As the saying goes you don't know how good you got it, you seem to be totally unaware of how times have changed with crime reporting.

Yes, other governments should ensure that festivals only allow entrance if accompanied by a parent.

Funny how you mention that. I remember a kid at school who always used to grab girls butts when they were sitting on the science class high stools.. one evening this week Radio one was reporting that this is no longer acceptable..
The girls did used to protest but never told a teacher. We were also not taught that we should report it and/or view the groper as a pervert. I myself however was raised better than that..

Ha. We all looked at them.. (Which most teenage boys would) Some of those skirts were reallt short.. but only one guy groped them..
Times have already changed.. skirts are not allowed at my daughter's school.. trousers only and not even crop trousers.

Islam is the religion of peace.. So they did not expect the fighters to cause any problems..
Especially as the jihadist fighters will already have a virgin allocation awaiting them on the other side..

Sweden is a failed state. Their customs and civil rights are in tatters because theyve been governed by the the extreme PC brigade for years and years.

Their politicians hate their own peoples and their police force are a joke . Bye bye Sweden looks like your going down the toilet.



Left wing champagne socialist sums up the argument perfectly. This man was close to tears when the Brexit vote came in. Pathetic flimsy views.

I can't believe anybody would believe that - it just doesn't make any sense at all.

Why would anybody associate spirit with carnal?

Did you go? Did you read the crime reports or get short changed at the bar or served by staff high on drugs.. guess not..
Many many other complaints. It was a complete shambles.
My point being that festival organisers need to protect the paying customers. Not just take the ticket money and do a poorly organised event very badly. Teenagers should be safe and feel safe at a festival. Mud and rain never stopped Glastonbury or V-festival..
Poor organisation stopped why bother..

No, did you? I've got plenty of friends who went, and my Facebook page is full of pictures of families having fun until the torrential downpour hit. A colleague took her five and eight year olds, and didn't mention anything particularly out of the ordinary - at any gathering of 20,000 people, you're going to get some kind of trouble, no matter how well organised. There were five arrests - there were over sixty at Glastonbury (reported as a 'success' and 'record low'). Y Not is about a tenth of the size.
From what I've heard, there's just a lot of people trying to force refunds because they're unhappy with it being abandoned a day early.

Anyone sick of terrorism is UKIP?
Anyone who voted Brexit is UKIP?

...hmm the latest elections show an entirely different span of political leaning - I challenge the widely held liberal and over-generalized pigeon-holing of people who are against terrorism and extremism as UKIP or BNP or EDL, it simply isn't true.
there was an item on woman's hour yesterday about females being subject to upskirts photo-`enthusiasts` who are especially prevalent at music festivals.

the woman being interviewed was upskirted at a killers concert.

she was wearing knickers so the police said prosecution wasn't possible.

it is when people are only interested when a certain demographic are likely to be the perpetrators.

i'm sure your concern extends to all victims and perpetrators of this vile crime and to sexual mistreatment of women both home and abroad.

Of course it extends to all victims of abuse, What a silly non point, like anyone is ignoring sexual assaults when not commited by a certain "demographic". There is a specific problem involving this demographic and that is what people are discussing, just like when a thread is posted about pedophile priests (" a certain demographic"), the subject is about pedophile priests. Or is your attitude it is a hate crime to discuss pedophillia by priests?

I honestly dont understand this head in the sand mentality. You cant discuss a proven problem because they are immigrants, I guess the statistics are racist, so lets ignore them.
well, that's you, and well done. but a huge number are a bit too keen to call out immigrant rape yet at the same time their worship of massively misogynistic behaviour by the likes of mummy basement dweller roosh v shows that their real concern isn't women or rape at all, but brown people. and here in the UK 90% of rapes don't result in a conviction, even in the 50% that end up with a court case at all. curiously those facts often get forgotten by such people, if they don't openly denounce victims' ordeals as false accusations that is.

What utter rubbish, If the thread was about British or white people rapes I doubt anyone would be condoning it either.

Rape or sexual assault is rape or sexual whether committed by white people, black people, brown people or multi coloured people it doesn't matter. Facts are facts and you shouldn't ignore them.
