Maybe it was the Emperor Bokassa’s golden crown or Caligula proclaiming his horse as proconsul but every corrupt regime has a FOLIE DE GRANDUR where an act that might seem no less acceptable than others finally leads to downfall.
The act does not have to be committed by the regime itself – but someone with overwheening confidence on the values of the regime. Enter HARVEY GOLDSMITH and his golden calf – ON BLACKHEATH.
At a time of austerity and food banks and hunger Goldsmith decides to show off a festival for foodies. Those who have paid the £108 plus booking fee of £5.70 can stroll down aisles of celebrity chefs supervising exquisite delights. Quail, peacock……..dainties from the Moluccas .Doubtless ALEX JAMES’ will be on hand as the OLD ETONIAN headline act croons out bland assurances.
CLASS WAR WIL BE SETING UP A FOODBANK ON THE COMMON FOR THE WHOLE OF THE FESTIVAL.
