Story

Ok I really didn't think people were actually such a***holes as this but: after being banned from performing at Goldsmith's College, then after much discussion invited back, having the show cancelled twice due to rather suspicious problems identified by the SU, a LOT of hard work from Asher and Shaz and the organising group, tonight we finally did the show. We wanted to do it as a benefit for Refugee Action. We made the tickets free and asked people to donate at the door so the charity would get 100% of the money and no-one on a tight budget would miss out. We fully booked out overnight and I spent a lot of the last couple of days telling people I was sorry there was no more room but we couldn't risk breaking the room's fire capacity and giving the SU another excuse to chuck us out. Well it turned out that the tickets had been reserved in bulk by people using spurious email addresses to make a point by then not showing up. So a load of people who wanted to see my show were not able to and a vital charity doing life-saving work missed out on at least several hundred quid, maybe more. I hope you're really proud you f**king s**tbags.

Note: original getting banned story http://cruellablog.blogspot.co.uk/2015/02/goldsmiths-and-me-full-story-proof.html then they told us there was a burst water main, then they said the paperwork had been filled in wrong then today, finally, the show went ahead but ... turns out we had been sabotaged again!!
