Cancer scare mum fined for taking children out of school to experience Glastonbury Festival

A mother who took her two children to Glastonbury Festival for a "once-in-a-lifetime" experience after a serious cancer scare has hit out at her local council after she was left with a hefty fine.

Rachel Bailey, 51, took her two twin children, Blade and Trinity Flint, to the world-famous festival for the first time this year, and along with her partner, the family had a "brilliant time".

"I got fined for taking my kids to Glastonbury," Mrs Bailey said..."It is something I have always wanted to do, and it was something so special to do as family, after what we have been through."

"I want to make experiences for them while I can, and Glastonbury is a once-in-a-lifetime experience."

Isn't it on every other year? So possibly not 'once in a lifetime'.

Also, Blade and Trinity?!

One is obviously a vampire / vampire slayer, and the other a notorious outlaw hacker who's bonking John Wick.

Flint blade, geddit?

You think the thinking went that far? I'm sure the mum just fancies Wesley Snipes or something...

These people should be culled.

Blade Bailey used to be in Iron Maiden, shirley?

It's a shame there aren't any festivals on during school holidays.

She only did it for the kids. She, of course, abhors all that boom-boom music and drug taking.

Depending on where she lives it is possible to.go for just the weekend. Go down Friday at 3pm and leave on Sunday after the big headliner. Still gives the little smashers a good two days of Glastonbury experience.

Or maybe wait a couple of years and take them after exams.

Or maybe just pay the fine.

#6 it was Blaze, not Blade Fogger

has she got her sad face in the daily mail yet?

So, she hasn't got cancer and her kids have lived for more than one year, so it's an annual, rather than a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Please, just go away, you dreary, dreary person.

Oh yes but I couldn't bring myself to link to it so went for the somersetlive site.

It's the Universe punishing the stupid -

"Dear school. My kids are vomiting and shitting non-stop, and will not be attending for a few days.".
