According to Wales on Sunday
Cops are spreading muck to stop illegal raves in Wales.
Farmers in remote parts of the country are being advised by police to cover their fields with fresh manure to deter fashion-conscious ravers stepping foot on their land in designer trainers.
And officers believe the organic crime-buster is already bringing a sweet smell of success in West Wales.
‘Who’d want to have a party and camp in a field covered with fresh dung or slurry?’
In August 2003, 20 party organisers approached a farmer in Marloes and told him they were about to have a party on his field, and he was unable to stop them. More than 500 people attended the illegal rave, which lasted four days.
This year Dyfed-Powys Police teamed up with Pembrokeshire Council, the National Park Authority, National Trust and other groups to try to avoid a repeat.
Police monitored potential sites and had a quick response team on standby at high-risk periods for signs of disturbance.
Pc Max Bevan, a community safety officer in Pembrokeshire, said: ‘If farmers want to spread muck on their field then it is a pretty good deterrent, and we do have a ready supply of that material here!
‘After the events last year we have proactively attempted to prevent events taking place.’
Julian Salmon, Wales director of the Country Land and Business Association, said the slurry method was tried, tested and very successful.
‘When people spread slurry on the fields it seems to calm the ravers down,’ said Mr Salmon.
‘It makes the field less attractive!’

What I’m wondering is:
Where did that get all that shit :confused:
I’d be worried about trainers?
Would I want to go to a shit party?
A quick shit response team? Is that how my taxes are being spent?
Oh Julian Salmon? Everyone knows he’s a cunt:rolleyes:November 30, 2004 at 9:43 pm #1063090Anonymous

someone should nick the manure, bag it and sell to old ladies in the village for their plants – then use the money to buy rig bits 😀November 30, 2004 at 10:58 pm #1063092globalloonParticipant
