A festival of isolationism

I read earlier that the outists are trying to organise some kind of concert or music festival in aid of their cause. It’s obvious they are trying to re-frame or re-present their message as something positive and social; they think that by holding such a rally, they can come across as something popular and inclusive. But frankly, this festival, if it happens, will be more akin to Nuremberg than Live Aid. No doubt they want to invoke the massive social events of recent times like the diamond jubilee or the olympics, allowing Farage et al to preach their isolationist, intellectually void bullshit to a massive, cheering audience of unthinking halfwits. It would be a sickening sight. I only hope no popular musician is stupid enough to sign up to play; or that, if it happens a similar ‘in’ festival can be organised in reply.
