Fantastic. Can't stand the woman, was completely in denial when the banks crashed and seems to be of the opinion that she is to tell the voters what to think, rather than to act on the voters' behalf.

Nah. Her and her sister are decent local MPs. Maybe she's not good enough to be in power, but for constituency affairs then she's a good un.


Then again a fart in a wetsuit is better than Comrade Corbyn. :lol:

Precisely. She's been a good MP for us over the years and I'm not the only one who says that. It's why she get's in at a canter when Wallasey historically had always been Conservative (she's our first ever Labour MP and has held the seat since 1992).

The bio and photo do make you want to slap them all in the face.

However, since I'm interested in new music, I'll be there for their set. Perhaps they're good, and just couldn't sell a glass of water to a thirsty man?

I would've avoided them just from the photo before even looking at the blurb. :lol:

Listening to them might be marginally worse than reading the bio

Fast forwarded to about half way through, could only listen in 5 second bursts. Are the organisers out of their minds? And I don't mean that in a neckbeardy "grr I hate screamo it's so false" way. I wish them well because I like to think I'm not a dick but they'd be better off at some Download/Sonisphere small stage playing to demographics that might appreciate them more.

I had a look at the video above. Sam Allardyce think's it's hilarious. :P

Gave their songs a listen and their bio a quick read. I liked what I heard. Despite them not being my usual cup of tea I can clearly see they're talented young people who deserved to win M2M. The lead singer has a great voice, and dat drummer. I will happily go and check them out, I'll keep an open mind.

if you're into that sort of music, they probably aren't that bad for what it's worth. I know a few of my friends on facebook like them.
They won a competition through whatever means (I still think popularity wins over actual talent in these things but whatevs) to play a festival for free.
They've probably spent hundreds of pounds on rehearsals/getting to the competition rounds/getting to bloodstock and at the end of it they still aren't making a penny so fair play to them if that makes them happy.
That bio is inexcusable however :lol:
