Glastonbury without soul

The violent intervention by U2 security guards this weekend, which led to broken fingers and intimidating behaviour, and the total destruction of Art Uncut's balloon (shown here minutes before the guards struck), challenges Glastonbury's claim to be anything other than a commercial rock fest with pretensions (not helped by Beyonce's ghastly Las Vegas style closing act, which surely has no place in rural Somerset). Shame.
