The Glastonbury Festival starts in a few days.

Here are some perhaps little known facts: Saga, the insurance outlet for the zimmer framed, is offering... oh, I’ve just realised I qualify for Saga ... the insurance outfit for the middle aged, is offering over 50s who take out its motor home insurance a refund on the rental for a motor home pitch at the Festival.

The big draw act this year at Glastonbury is Stevie Wonder, who had his first hit some 47 years ago.

And the BBC are sending 400 people to cover the event. Four hundred.

I don’t at all mind a private event for middle class hippy-manqués but that our state broadcaster is taking it seriously is quite, quite preposterous.
