Jon Snow says he can't remember shouting "Fuck the Tories" at Glastonbury


There were a lot of celebrities at Glasto this year – Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, the Beckhams, probably Paul Danan somewhere, and of course, both Jon Snows. The Jon Snow from Game of Thrones and the Jon Snow from Game of Channel 4 News. Some lucky revellers were fortunate enough to bump into both of them.

Here’s someone “having a laugh” with the six-pack, curly-haired Jon Snow:

But of the all tweets involving all and any Jon Snows, this is the best one; involving the one-pack, silver-haired Jon Snow:


Great tweet, and the revelation that Jon Snow was on a large one, storming about shouting “Fuck the Tories!” is what makes it. Course, broadcasters are meant to be neutral, so it probably wasn’t the best idea to be razzing it with such reckless abandon (if he did actually shout that at all).

However, if we’re being pedantic here – the rules, enforced by Ofcom, only really apply when relating to what’s actually on telly, so if Jonny wanted to paint the town red, as it were, then that’s fine. I’d still advise against it though – he’s not Paul Danan.

Snow has since responded to the viral tweet, telling the Huffington Post: “After a day at Glastonbury, I can honestly say I have no recollection of what was chanted, sung or who I took over 1,000 selfies with.”

Completely fair answer, that – I can’t imagine most people have a solid recollection of what happened at Glastonbury, and a lot of things were likely shouted after too many ciders, and slipped through the brain-net. So let him off, I say – he was having a right laugh, clearly.

Here he is throwing back to his time at the fest:

I assume he's talking about Jeremy Corbyn's banging set on Saturday, where The Absolute Boy acted as Run The Jewels’ support act, and somehow got everyone into a short but sweet dialogue about politics in an arena full of people completely off their faces. Pretty good going.

Anyway, Jon, shout what you want. You’re at a festival – anything goes. Drink your own piss out of a shoe, let your hair down.
