Well, where to start. Seen as most of the comments have been removed from the other forum i will post here. (the joys of modern technology) Ed Blaney is completely incompetent to look after himself nevermind an "organised" event! How anyone expected him to run this festival without a punch being thrown or a car being drove through the pub window i don't know. As i previously said in the other forum... (yes i will troll) i had the misfortune to work with this cretin, and all i learnt from him was how to stay as far away from him as possible if i wanted to keep my sanity. GOOD TIMES!
