Or is blocking pavements to get tickets more than a bit inconsiderate?

I get it, they want tickets(so do i!)they're excited, its currently the only thing that matters to them, and sitting in the rain for 5 days is no fun so talking to each other is about all they can do but huddling your chairs to block the entire pavement and then putting up a gazebo that has two feet on the road requiring traffic cones to alert drivers to its presence is taking the fucking piss. Other people need to use that pavement and should be able to do so without having to go out on to the road to get by. People with wheelchairs or prams or small children or lots of shopping shouldnt be being inconvenienced like this for something that isnt necessary.
Right? I'm confused as to why the council arent doing something.

And yes, iamnotaprincess it was people such as yourself that i was thinking of. Easy for me to nip down on to the road and back up again, not so easy for yourself or people with buggies, children, disabilities etc.

I've been singing 'think I'll slip on down to the OH-O-ASIS" all morning.

That's a pity Silly. Hopefully he might put on a third night though. Definitely demand for it!

Accomodation is indeed a scandal. I've a friend booked a hotel room when the dates were announced. She got a phone call last night to say they were no longer available and her booking was cancelled.
So they can sell rooms at a higher price from today I assume.

Oh sorry I see the third night is sold out too. Bah.

I have queued at various venues for tickets and waited with my teens while they are waiting to go into Sultudebt Union Arena's.

Every time we have been waiting, although there is a pavement opposite or alternative route, some wanker has insisted on walking where we are queuing.

I know that we are creatures of habit, but using a bit of common sense occasionally, seems beyond some people.

That and people can be twats, of course. Because just getting on with it and counting themselves lucky that they live close to a venue, is asking for too much.

And I lived between Anfield and Goodison, so had to readjust my life all football season.
