UAF gig cancelled

With guitarist Pete Doherty still in rehab, The Libertines have had to pull out of this Sunday's Love Music - Hate Racism festival in London, leading to its cancellation. It's a terrible shame, although the event seemed ill-starred from the off: between the awful Metropolitan Police and The Libertines' continuing woes, fate had rather conspired against it. We will discover after June 10 how successful UAF has been in promoting an anti-BNP message. It would be awful to discover that London cannot host an anti-fascist music festival, but can allow a BNP member onto the GLA.
