Apparently, last week's Pink Paper – owned by the Mardi Gras owners – confessed that only 28,000 (of a possible 85,000) tickets were sold.
YES! YES! YES! Death to Mardi Gras!
Unfortunately, it looks as if Mardi Gras 2000 Ltd – still naughtly overdue in sending last year's accounts the last time I looked – will go the way of its predecessor and the shits who effectively took away our community owned Pride will escape too much financial damage and try again next year.
And remember these were the men who refused to help when Pride went under owing about £50k, because they said the event needed to be run by proper businessmen.
