  1. Looks like the weather was good!

    This site really desperately needs a different way of displaying photos though. They’re small, very awkward to move between, usually uncaptioned and overburdened with the Pink News logo.

  2. Some of these porn guys got badly sunburnt because of wearing painted on logos for various internet sites and no suncream while having no tops on in order to show off the six-packs.The sponsors need to think again before the porn lads start to join Equity.

    1. Porn ‘stars’ (I couldn’t name a single so called star) are not exactly great role models for kids to aspire to but i guess it showcases what gay Pride is all about. Hedonism, self gratification and rectal lust.

      1. Jock S. Trap 15 Aug 2011, 8:59am

        Yawn! Your such an ignorant perv.

      2. You’d let your kids watch porn, Keith? If not, then those guys being poor kids’ role models is a complete non issue. If so, you’re as twisted as your comment.

      3. Maybe that’s because you’re not really paying attention to their names when you watch them, Keith?

      4. Jock S. Trap 15 Aug 2011, 11:44am

        Is Keith, David Skinner or Stephen Green me wonders?

        1. I don’t know Jock, but I suspect whoever it is has been angrily masturbating at the thought of all that “rectal lust”.

          1. Jock S. Trap 15 Aug 2011, 2:53pm

            He does seem overy obsessed with Gay sex, more than most Gay men I think.

    Blogger “Foxy Coxy” always has a good range of photographs and his article on Brighton Fay Pride 2011 is no exception:

    http://www.randomhotguys.com/

    I’ve been visiting his various blogs for years and they never disappoint,

  4. Bill (Scotland) 14 Aug 2011, 9:03am

    Doh! Obviously that should have been “Britghton Gay Pride 2011″ :)

  5. Michelangelo 14 Aug 2011, 9:27am

    Many of these photos just prove the old theory that most homosexuals are narcissists.

    What are people proud about? Sex, or narcissism?

    1. These photos prove nothing of the sort, however your response proves you are a miserable git.

      1. Michelangelo 14 Aug 2011, 9:36am

        lol – typical response from someone who might be a narcissist.

        Try reading a) the classical definition of narcissism and b) theories that link narcissistic personality with homosexuality, then look at some of the photos again and be objective (if you can).

        1. Typical response from someone who might be a bigot.
          .
          Try working out for yourself how many homosexuals there might be in the UK and the likelihood that a few dozen young men with their shirts off represent ‘most’.
          .
          Dipstick.

          1. Don’t you and your ‘ilk’ tire of calling every dissenting or questioning voice that of a bigot?
            Expand your vocabulary the Merriam Webster way please, and while you are in perusal of said dictionary, check out the meaning of the word bigot. You will find it appliues to you and your likeminded cohorts on here who insult and abuse all who’s views diffe. Particularly those who hold traditional male female marriage as sacred and denounce unclean sexual practices that kill even innocent babies.

          2. Jock S. Trap 15 Aug 2011, 8:02am

            What a bore = Yawn.
            -
            Such hatred, Keith = A very dull person.

          3. OK Keith, if it makes you happy I’ll replace ‘bigot’ with ‘prejudiced’. Satisfied? If not, I suggest you look up the OED definition of it (and while you’re there, perhaps you could also look up the difference between who’s and whose). Perhaps it might be of assistance if you looked up ‘obsession’ too?

          4. Don’t you think Keith is obviously Pepa really?

            What kind of obsessive hangs around gay websites daily to put down gay people? Reminds me of that virulently anti-gay deputy attorney general who stalked a student leader who was gay, both online and in person, ended up being sacked for using his work computer for harassment, and sued for millions..

        He’s not miserable, I totally go with it. So many gays complain of being stereotyped, and then mince about like a bunch of nancies.
        It does the rest of us a great disservice.

        1. It does the rest of us a great disservice.
          .
          Only if you accept that a minority within a group speaks for the whole group.
          .
          Other people are entitled to behave however they want, whether it does you credit or not. If you have concerns about the way gay men are seen, then do something about it yourself.

          1. Spanner1960 16 Aug 2011, 9:16am

            Reahan: And pray tell me how I would go about that?
            It’s always the handful of extrovert, mouthy ones that get noticed, whereas the majority of us just want to get on with our lives without any hassle.

          2. Minorities are inevitably judged by their most conspicuous examples (and often the worst ones, if you think about the way young black men are frequently demonised), it’s the way of the world I’m afraid.
            .
            If you feel strongly that other voices should be heard, raise yours.

    2. Oh dear. typical comment from a self loathing bitter prlck. try looking at some michelangelo paintings, michelangelo.

      1. I think Michelangelo is really my narcissistic friend David but I could be wrong..oh look a mirror! Must dash!

    3. This might shock you – but people tend to photograph things that look interesting. A lot of the marchers were ordinary guys and girls representing fire brigades, the police, unions, sports clubs etc. But they don’t make good pics so are rarely recorded Of course – the urge to flaunt and wear costumes for parades is not unique to homosexuals – take a walk outside your tiny world experience and check our Mardi Gras in New Orleans or carnival in Rio – acres of hetero skin on display there. Loving to party transcends sexuality.

    4. Dr Herbert Shellface 17 Aug 2011, 1:10pm

      If it is claimed to be a representative sample, it rather proves that gay people are fitter and better looking than straight people.

      1. dig the monicker dr x

      2. Staircase2 23 Aug 2011, 5:18pm

        Actually it does neither – it just shows that the people THERE were dressed up for it and having a good time…

        simple

  6. Why was there only one picture of Joe McElderry?

  7. These pics kind of make me realise why I can never go to pride. When ever I see a pics of a pride even or anything gay related. All I see is 20 inch waste guys with 6 packs.

    This either means these are the only people that fit in at pride or the only people the media wants to portray as gay.

    :(

    1. look through the pics again and tell us how many have guys with 20 inch waists and 6 packs. I can’t find hardly any. pride is always full of all sorts. maybe its you who cant take his eyes of the 20 inch waists and 6 packs. ;)

    2. If they had 20-inch waists there’d either be something seriously wrong with them or they’d be very very small indeed.

      1. Ok 32 or summat. I dunno all I know is I see the pattern of the type of guys.

        Damn. Talk about jumping on someone’s back.

        1. Good grief man, if you’re going to indulge your hangups at least get your dimensions right!

          1. alberto potato 16 Aug 2011, 12:30am

            here man retard feck off why the feck does everybody have to be so correcting, bitter and twisted on here?

          2. Thanks for the QED, potato.

    3. not really im a big guy and i go to pride every year and i love it im 36 inch waist do form of 6 pack in sight you dont have to be a model type to fit in lol

  8. Pink News..do you not have a better way to view the photos than by clicking the numbers under the photos???

  9. Paddyswurds 14 Aug 2011, 2:53pm

    ..
    …two words suffice to describe this non spectacle; Sad and Tired. Time to put this whole pride debacle out of its misery and consign it to the dustbin of history. Whatever happened to the bright vivacious day that Pride used to be. the whole thing reeked of Madam Tussauds basement. Looking at this offering of pics about the only good thing about the day was the weather.Yeuk!

    1. What a misanthropic comment. Pride parades mightn’t be your sort of thing – they aren’t mine either – but the people in the pictures seemed to be enjoying themselves, so why be a miseryguts about it?

      1. Paddyswurds 14 Aug 2011, 9:35pm

        @Rehan…
        …You think those in the pics look like they are having a ball and you call me a miseryguts? If you read my comment properly you’ll see i think Prides have deyeriorated to a sad tired shadow of what they used to be. Time to call it quits when the whole thihg gets as boring as this looks, porn aadvertising and all.

        1. Well, they don’t look as though they’re not having fun, do they? Most of the people in the pictures look pretty cheerful, and why should you begrudge them that even if it’s not your idea of fun?

          1. Paddyswurds 14 Aug 2011, 10:46pm

            @Rehan …
            ….I didn’t say i gegrudged them their “fun” I merely commented on the apparant lack of as is my right on these pages. You must be looking at a different set of pics from the rest of us because apart from the porn dudes, everyone looks thoroughly bored and dejected and the trannies ….well. BTW were you there?

  10. Thanks for the photos PinkNews but you do need a better way of displaying them. It took me ages to click through each picture. Either display all pictures on a single page/several pages OR put them in al album like on Facebook where you can flick through them easily.

  11. The pictures make the day look dull and boring. Glad I missed it again.

    1. Paddyswurds 14 Aug 2011, 9:37pm

      @Ryan…
      .exactly my point although Rehan didnt jump all over you.

      1. Only because I didn’t think it worth repeating myself (which of course I’m doing here, but let’s not dwell on that …)

      2. alberto potato 16 Aug 2011, 12:33am

        that’s as he hasn’t got a clue paddy

  12. Jock S. Trap 14 Aug 2011, 4:13pm

    One has to wonder if the people that whinge and moan about Pride events, celebrating all things culturally Gay, Lesbian etc calling for them to end also make as much noise about the Notting Hill Carnival or is it just anything LGBT that should stop?
    -
    Surely if people don’t wish to take part that is entirely their own choice but as plenty of people do go, LGBT and their families, friends and supporters and enjoy it, why would you want to stop those people having fun?
    -
    The fact we still have bigotry and homophobia, are still unequal shows one reason why they are still important but the fact also that so many people attend and enjoy is more than enough reason for them to stay and be celebrated.

    1. Just as equally as you like pride events you must understand those that don’t.

      I understand how some people are tired of seeing a lgbt event and it’s a sea of stereotypes and imagery that people have spent decades trying to say we aren’t and don’t label us like it.

      Personally I don’t feel I fit in at pride stuff. I was once part of 2 commities forming pride events but it didn’t end well.

      Like I said earlier all the pride stuff that’s posted is of just beautiful fit people who are flamboyant.

      I guess I’m just ostracised from a sense of community within the lgbt life

      1. I didn’t like the idea of pride events. but not coz they’re full of beautiful people but because i thought they were too camp for me, and i’m not into trannies. i went to my first one this year and i’ve never seen as many mingers and ordinary folk in one day. it was not a sea of beautiful fit flamboyant people. i was disappointed because i thought all gay guys were supposed to be fit, like me – only joking. but they werent. but even though i dont like pride events. i nearly started crying at pride (how camp is that) coz i realised how homophobic i was by being so bitter about them. lesson learnt. and now i dont complain about them. theyre not my scene. i dont reckon ill go to another. but i know they’re a lot of other LGBT peoples scene. so good for them. i rekon i might try folsom in berlin. looks much more fun. total sleaze pit. guess i’m just trying to say you’ve got to find your own sense of community within the lgbt life. depending on what you’re in to. i think?

        1. I used to think like this once. I thought the whole Pride thing set us back because the world only saw the flamboyant silliness that sets their teeth on edge and makes them resist us all the more. That said, we still have a lot of opposition and being quiet and pretending we’re the same as everyone else will not make any progress. The flamboyance of the parade doesn’t represent gay people generally, it represents a refusal to be oppressed and a symbol of gratitude to those who have already made progress for us by not lying down and being satisfied with what scraps they had. Most people who went to the event went to celebrate being themselves in public for once; it’s nice to be in the majority once in a while. Being somewhere that I can hold hands with my boyfriend with absolutely no fear of reprisal makes me remember exactly what we have left to achieve, and that is what the parade is about.

          1. Jock S. Trap 15 Aug 2011, 11:13am

            Indeed.
            -
            What people see is what the media, including the Gay press, choose to put out to ‘glamourise’ or ‘de-glamourise’ I guess but when did we become so closed minded to think the event is not for all sorts, attracts all sorts from all over the country and all over world.
            -
            It is for all to celebrate, if you wish to do so.
            -
            Not forgetting 2012 will be London will host World Pride which it a deffo in my book.

          2. Jock S. Trap 15 Aug 2011, 11:14am

            Excellently well put, sven!!

      2. Jock S. Trap 15 Aug 2011, 8:09am

        No adam88, I’m don’t very often do Pride but I do realise many do and many enjoy it.
        -
        I totally understand that some enjoy and some don’t but thats no reason to stop others pasing a message and enjoying the day and who we are.
        -
        It’s too easy to blast it if you don’t do it but my guess is, it wouldn’t matter how much they changed it it would get the likes of you whinging about it.
        -
        It’s a day to be enjoyed and celebrate being Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual etc, etc, etc if you don’t want to or don’t like it so what. Do go getting stereotypical on people’s asses for enjoying themselves.
        -
        Fact is that as long as their are people wanting and people watching it is relevent and an important day for all who wish to participate.

        1. Jock S. Trap 15 Aug 2011, 10:18am

          Also it is for Everyone wanting to celebrate our culture. Don’t blame Pride for what the Gay press choose to show, thats their narrow mindedness.

          1. Spanner1960 15 Aug 2011, 8:47pm

            “Your” culture is not everybody’s.

            Spanner1960
            -
            Thats why culture is diverse, probably why our culture is one of the best. It’s supposed to accommodate all no matter how different or the same people may be but we all have one common element… we all happen to be Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual etc etc etc. We also happen to me Black, White, Asian, Christian, Non-religious, Muslim, Camp, Butch….
            -
            We have to be one of the best and biggest of diverse cultures there is and if they ain’t worth celebrating one way or another then I don’t know what is.

          3. Spanner1960 16 Aug 2011, 9:18am

            Why is diversity something to be celebrated? What’s the big deal?
            I would say it was actually the opposite, we have absolutely nothing in common except who we happen to sleep with.

          4. Jock S. Trap 16 Aug 2011, 10:42am

            Ok well if you want to make it all about sex you need to speak to pervy Keith.
            -
            More to people than sex Spanner1960.
            -
            Life is to be celebrated, being Gay is to be celebrated as well as everything else, good in life.
            -
            Your choice if you don’t but most of us pretty much do want to, in one way or another.

      3. Jock S. Trap 15 Aug 2011, 8:11am

      Notting Hill Carnival is stili vivacious and fun and a great day out and one isn’t charged an exhorbitant fee to see or take part in it. It certainly looks from the pics from Brighton that a lot of people now think the same way and stay away in their droves. Looks to me more like an ad fest for pornagraphers rather than a fun day out for anyone.

      1. When was the last time you went to Notting Hill Carnival, Paddyswurds?

        1. alberto potato 16 Aug 2011, 12:35am

          when is the last time you said anything or done anything productive retard? that’s right – NEVER

          1. Jock S. Trap 16 Aug 2011, 8:30am

            Erm, seriously? thats low! Notice a name change there though, what’s up didn’t want people to know who wrote it? I think we all can hazard a guess.

          2. Paddyswurds 16 Aug 2011, 11:23am

            @alberto potato..
            …. is this your attempt at making it look like i’m changing my tag Rehan? Pink news really needs to get to the nub of this problem by requireing e.mail and tag registration, as well as fixing this awful software.

          3. @Paddyswurds, I’ve only just got your drift – don’t be silly, I know you’re perfectly capable of expressing yourself. Besides, my avatar would come up automatically if I tried to post under a different name, wouldn’t it?

      2. Jock S. Trap 15 Aug 2011, 8:19am

        Actually the Notting Hill Carnival is exactly the same as a Mardi Gras/Pride and they have been talking about the possibility of charging because they are having problems with finance.
        -
        You seem to forget that this events not only do wonders for the cause and celebration. They don’t just bring joy to though taking part and watching. They also bring economic revenue to the area too.
        -
        Having been to both I have totally enjoyed both and feel they are about celebrating who people are and get tremendous support.
        -
        Anything that bring Joy should be promoted esp if the local economy benefits too.

      3. Jock S. Trap 15 Aug 2011, 8:27am

        Actually both are doing the same, celebrating diversity and culture.
        -
        However, Carnival is struggling with costs and are talking about possible charges next year but like Pride if people really enjoy and support they will happily pay a little bit for a good day out that celebrates.
        -
        As long as both attract people they are relevent and lets not forget these even’t don’t just benefit us or our supporters but also the local economy too.
        -
        As long as people attend, these events are ever relevent and I for one, love that.

    3. Blah blah. Bigotry an homophobia. Change the record and learn the meaning of those word. Bigotry is defined as stubborn and complete intolerance of any creed, belief, or opinion that differs from one’s own… Sounds a bit like you my friend! I on the other hand admit to being bigotted (stubborn and complete intolerance) against the ‘practice’ of homosexuality . I harbour the same bigotry against all immoral acts such as inces and fornication and bestaility.
      Homophobia however is defined as an irrational hatred and fear of homosexuals. This shoe does not fit me since I know no homosexuals to hate and if I did my hatred would be for the act, not the person, furthermore , I can rationalize my hatred with statistical evidence of the harm caused by AIDs etc, sadly to innocent babies who are killed every year by selfish individuals seeking self gratification and not considering that the expulsion aof AIDs lies in abstinence.

I harbour the same bigotry against all immoral acts such as inces and fornication and bestaility.
      Homophobia however is defined as an irrational hatred and fear of homosexuals. This shoe does not fit me since I know no homosexuals to hate and if I did my hatred would be for the act, not the person, furthermore , I can rationalize my hatred with statistical evidence of the harm caused by AIDs etc, sadly to innocent babies who are killed every year by selfish individuals seeking self gratification and not considering that the expulsion aof AIDs lies in abstinence.

      1. …Keith is obviously Pepa really.

        What kind of obsessive hangs around gay websites daily to put down gay people? Reminds me of that virulently anti-gay deputy attorney general who stalked a student leader who was gay, both online and in person, ended up being sacked for using his work computer for harassment, and sued for millions..

    7. Blah blah. Bigotry an homophobia…blah blah. Change the record and learn the meaning of those words.

    1. No I wasn’t, not entirely my sort of thing and besides I live in London. And maybe we aren’t looking at the same pictures, because most of the people in those that I’ve seen look pretty cheerful.

  15. keith is a closet case and what Englishman is going to use an American dictionary?

    FYI keith, HIV/AIDS are now overwhelmingly contracted by heterosexuals world wide.

    Marriage is an artifical construct, invented by men not by some supernatural entity you call god, delusional at best. It existed long before the abrahamic cults came along and changed it. Civil marriage has absolutely NOTHING to do with your so called “traditional” religious marriage, no mandate to procreate and no invocation of your sky pixie either.

    Why isn’t he trolling straight sites to admonish heterosexuals about their adultery, philandery, soliciting prostitutes and catholic priests molesting girls and boys. His presence here is proof that it’s nothing more than prurient interest. Only the closeted obsess so much about gays and gay sex.

    2. Firstly. Of course more heterosexuals now have AIDs. That is because ther are far more of them ….rolls eyes! Of courseit started out as a homosexual plague and spread quickjly-as expected -amongst the ‘homosexual community’..
      As anticipated, it then spread to the immoral heterosexual fornicators and evetually even to innocent people and babies via infected blood.
      HIV remains disproportionately high amongst homosexuals and they are at greater risk than any other group., hence the bar on blood donation by active homosexuals. I would rather take my chance with a saline drip thanks!

        Wow, you really are an uneducated ignorant w@nker ain’t you.
        -
        Again with your assumption just to put down Gay men. Easy targets eh you sick bastard.
        -
        You and your kind are what’s the most dangerous, with you pure ignorance it’s no wonder things like HIV spread.
        -
        Learn the facts you fvcking idiot coz right now it’s you and your attitude that is killing innocent people and babies.
        -
        It is you with the blood of the innocent on your hands you sick fvcking bastard.

      2. Staircase2 23 Aug 2011, 5:27pm

        Reported – no idiot should be allowed to publish such completely uninformed bigoted rubbish and call it fact – people DIE from that kind of disinformation.

        You are an arse, Keith – pure and simple – completely full of sh!t…

        1. You failed to mention which part is wrong? Do you deny AHIV has caused the death of innocent persons including babies?

          1. “Do you deny AHIV has caused the death of innocent persons including babies?”

            And do you deny that you last statement is borderline insane and deeply misinformed?

            The “voices” wont let you, eh?

  16. HOW BIASED IS PINK NEWS….OVER 70 PICTURES OF THE BRIGHTON PRIDE…..WHERE WERE THE PICTURES FROM LIVERPOOL PRIDE……USUAL NORTH SOUTH DIVIDE……

    1. Spanner1960 15 Aug 2011, 8:49pm

      I wouldn’t worry about it. Seen one camp little trollop, you’ve seen ‘em all.

      1. Generosity of spirit really isn’t your strong point, is it Spanner1960?

        1. Spanner1960 16 Aug 2011, 9:21am

          Ah Rehan, you’re beginning to catch my drift at last. I wouldn’t say the gay scene was shallow, more damp.

          1. Jock S. Trap 16 Aug 2011, 10:44am

            It’s not the Gay scene that’s shallow, it’s people like you that are, people like you who clearly don’t do it and think everybody else shouldn’t either.

      2. Spanner1960 17 Aug 2011, 3:56pm

        I’ve nothing against Pride per se, just the image it gives off to everybody else. No wonder so many gay people have a hard time when the rest of the population thinks all gays act like that.

  17. hi guys.. for me photos is not a way of showing..that u can predict as a porn….anyone can do what they want..as long as they never hurt anybody that never can dare how to pic..there on topless…

  18. dancing in the streets is way better then burning them .

  19. These pictures are great! Looks like a good party! Wish I’d been there XD I don’t get why so many people moan about how its shallow, or how its flamboyant. Personally, I don’t think it is, but if people there are shallow and flamboyant, who the hell am I to judge? Newsflash! There are flamboyant people out there – not liking people because they appear flamboyant is just as discriminatory as any racist, sexist or homophobe and thus I see no point in it XD I always go by if it makes YOU happy, do it, if it doesn’t, don’t. Anything else is just ‘life’s a b****’ and it’s what you do about it that counts, now how much or how well you can moan about it.
    -
    I don’t care what sort of ‘image’ it gives out, I’ve never paid much attention in my life to people who stereotype me by one aspect of my life, be it white, gay, male or whatever, and if they do, Sod em! That’s their problem, and I sure as hell am not gunna try and blame my friends’ party for it.
    -
    That’s my two cents on the issue anyway!

  20. Staircase2 23 Aug 2011, 5:33pm

    Why is it that noone seems to be talking about the fact that this was a ticketed event?

    Firstly, apparently there were apparently 30,000 who attended ‘a’ festival in the park (I understand that 45,000 tickets were printed – which means that only 66.6% were sold – numbers give it away dont they….lol)

    As opposed to 160,000 people who attended last year.

    Pride is by definition about visibility: how can anyone be visible if they are hidden behind a wall?

    Pride is also a rite of passage for many gay people coming to terms with their sexuality. How DARE they try to put a price on this experience?

    How on earth do they expect someone in the closet to walk into a ticket shop or phone a ticket line and ask to buy a ticket to Gay Pride?

    The price alone should be making people on here jump up and down! £17.50 on the day / £12.50 beforehand.

    What on EARTH are they doing?

    1. Staircase2 23 Aug 2011, 5:37pm

      The social repercussions were potentially enormous for Brighton:

      Firstly many MANY people objected to paying for Pride and therefore came down to Brighton anyway which meant that potentially they were everywhere on the streets in town instead of the park. Just the simple amount of toilets that would have needed to be spread around Brighton would have been enormous just because they decided to exclude large numbers of people from the park itself.

      Potentially they ran the risk of turning people away from Brighton all together on what is one of (if not THE) busiest weekends in Brighton for local businesses.

      What would have happened had everyone stayed away out of protest?

      Many people seem to bleat on about tickets as if this was a money raising exercise – it wasnt: Officially this was ‘the only way’ (I don’t believe that!) that Pride could contain crowd numbers.

      This whole thing stinks from top to bottom (no pun intended!)

      1. Staircase2 23 Aug 2011, 5:44pm

        I heard that people who DID go in (some people were giving away their tickets to people before leaving) thought the whole thing was a sorry let down.

        I heard that younger people seemed to enjoy it (simply because they hadnt experienced what it could be or didnt understand what the Brighton Pride committee had taken away in the first place).

        After all – as others have said – what on earth was the ticket price actually giving people? As I understand it people were not allowed to bring food or drink into the park (in line with the fascist dark days of ticketed London Pride).

        As I understand it many tents chose not to be part of it this year because they too objected – so essentially all that people got was a park and the merest hint of the festival it once was – all for the princely sum of £17.50.

        Bloody outrageous!

        Come on people – you sit on here all day long bleating on about nonsense – why aren’t you so vocal about something which ACTUALLY matters!

        1. Staircase2 23 Aug 2011, 5:48pm

          And to cap it all Brighton Pride Retweeted that they had made ‘£4000′ ‘profit’ to give away to local charities after paying for all other costs!

          IS THAT ALL!? – Given that all the costs must have gone up exponentially once they decided to charge admission thats not very much is it?

          All day long on Twitter the Police were tweeting asking people to be extra vigilant (vigilanti?) and report anyone having ‘illegal raves’ (honestly!…)

          While PN’s Journalist tweeted from within the Park a company PR spin about how wonderful it all was – like I said: IT STINKS.

          I cant be alone in thinking so – surely!

          It should never have been allowed in the first place – its a complete mess!

          1. Staircase2 23 Aug 2011, 5:54pm

            Can I just also add that 30,000 tickets at £17.50 (tickets bought on the day) equals £525,000

            30,000 tickets at £12.50 (advance purchased tickets) equals £375,000

            30,000 tickets at £8 (‘community tickets) equals £240,000

            So they probably made somewhere between £240,000 and £375,000/£400,000 I would imagine.

            How much did they have to pay the X Factor ‘stars’ to appear? How much for fencing, security, police presence, clear up? etc etc etc

            And then they have only £4000 to give to local charities?! (My guess is that XFactor ‘stars’ cost more than that)

    Thanks for all the different pics!

    It would be great if there was a thumbnail page. I first wanted to check out these strapping lads and had to click 47 times to get to them!
