GLASTONBURY has won a place on the 2013 long list of crap towns, appearing in the top 100 contenders of worst places to live alongside Liverpool, Merthyr Tydfil, and Slough.
50'successful' towns will be picked from the long list to appear in a book entitled Crap Town Returns in October 2013. The reviewer for Glastonbury, Jane Ahserton, wrote:
"If you ask most locals in Glastonbury, they'll tell you that Glastonbury is one of the mellowest, most beautiful, most colourful and most spiritual places in the entire nation.
"But then, if you ask most locals, they will also tell you that water has a memory, and that vibrating it with infinitely minute quantities of various poisons will produce a drink that cures any disease - so long as the patient parts with enough money before swallowing."
The town won its place for the heinous crimes of telling people we're likely to be visited by 'benevolent beings from the world of infinite light,' and 'talking about hedge witchcraft.'
Other faux-pas include ignoring people's comfort zones, claiming to have known Jimi Hendrix and having thinning hair and a pony tail at the same time.
The town's residents are also accused of smelling of "patchouli and weed" and trying to sell crystals which will ward off cancer.
A statement on the Crap Towns website said: "Are you incandescent with rage and dispute your town's inclusion within this list? Good! Or perhaps you want to kick your town when it's down? Even better!
"Either reaction suits us. And now you can maybe influence whether or not the town makes the final cut. And have fun doing it."
Mayor of Glastonbury Sue Thurgood said she "absolutely refuted" the town's place in the long list.
"We have a very vibrant community, and we work well together in our diversity," she said.
"You only have to walk down our High Street to see that the shops are always very busy. We are a bright, colourful town, and a lovely place to visit."
