No political music at Glastonbury this year

I know I shouldn’t laugh, as advocating violence shouldn’t  be encouraged, but this has me chuckling into my morning coffee. The band Killdren has been blocked from their Glastonbury gig this year. “A band criticised for calling on members of the Conservative Party to be killed have had their Glastonbury Festival booking cancelled.” I know it’s wrong but reading that tickled me. How hilarious would it be to see so many people  dancing away to songs about killing twits like Gove or Johnson? I suppose it’s  just a reflection of  the time, both in that society is now so politically furious that we  get bands singing songs about murdering politicians, and in that we’re now so insecure that we can’t allow people to listen to them at festivals.
