"carnival was really good i loved the food and music and RAMPAGE the thing i hated was it finishes at 7!"

The barriers bother me the most. People too squash up, squash up. Police close off barriers, but of course no one can see the barriers ahead, which leads to huge amounts of pushing. Also more significantly it stops people from joining with floats. To curtail these menaces, why do they police not come up with some initiatives that do not also limit the fun of spectators….
The only other thing that bothers me is the attitude of some of the police. I do not mind their presence and I am used to it. I understand why they have to be there and appreciate it. However do they have to help out so grudgingly?

One downside... I found myself in a street packed with people .. felt the hand in my pocket trying to nick my property.. Fortunately he wasn't a very good pick pocket so he got nothing.. but what a piece of trash he was.. just spoiling a very special day Anyway.. that aside thank you ... have still to try Jerk chicken and goat curry... maybe next year Jan and Barry"

My ears took a week to recover.......and i said I thought the police were wussers for having ear plugs in........I have learnt to eat humble pie.

The police presence didn't upset me though they did seem a little stiff and starchy towards the crowd and some of the dancers who tried to encourage them to join in. It did come across as a bit "them and us"


People that are pushing cannot see that barriers maybe something to notify people that the barriers are there would stop them from pushing to get through."
Karen, Devon 05th September

We waited for some time for the first float to come out and it was quite promising and then there was a gap of about an hour until the second float came out which consisted of people in combat outfits drinking and just walking along behind a lorry and then nothing again.
Tricia from Plymouth 01st September

"The floats were great and the music/dancing were great! My kids really liked the whole ambiance. But the troublemakers were not! I am black and I find it shameful that many of our youths act that way."
John 01st September

When you stand beside to watch the passing groups it took to much time from one band to the other. Either the route should be urgently extended or restricted to less bands... hopefully some more streets are closed for the carnival one day...

 Can the police coordinate their info? PCs in Tavistock Road directed us back to Westbourne Park tube via Channel One Soundsystem (wonderful music) and Westbourne Park Road - the PCs then won''t let you go to Westbourne Park tube. If it''s not accessible tell us -

Shaun 31st August

I waited at Ladbrooke Grove from 1pm until 4.00pm and saw 2 floats - yes 2!!! There was at least an hour wait in between floats and in between we just saw the thugs of the MET walk up and down until eventually people actually booed and whistled at four that walked down. People's conversation was on the police and not on enjoying the carnival. In the end I left at 4.30pm after getting fed up of waiting.

I walked past another group of policemen and said "Well done for killing the carnival" to which one said rather pleased "That''s alright love, that's what we're here for!"

Says it all dunnit?"

"I have to say that i was really disappointed with carnival this year. I go carnival every year, but after this year i really doubt i will be going again.

There were so many youngsters out to cause problems, shoving people, starting trouble. i also didn't feel very safe, i witnessed so many fights, and clearly saw policemen standing there as they were too scared to stop the fights. And also the police have ruined carnival, they literally block off so many roads that u cant even go and dance and have a good time. And at one point i got lost and asked a policeman what road we were on, and asked him for directions. and he said he couldn't help help me, coz he didn't even know where we were!.. what's that about, shouldn't policemen know the roads and routes, if they are working on a particularly busy day, where people are bound to get lost...

Overall, my experience of carnival this year wasn't very nice...But regarding the floats, the music, the was very nice. I just hope for the future, that youths stay at home, and find something better to do, rather than coming out to cause trouble!"
