It seems like it was worth writing, and dispite the disappointment that goes
with the Oils not touring Europe at present, the good thing that comes out
of this is that the role and rights of the 'fan' are put in perspective.

If the Oils had been guided by their fans, they wouldn't have survived this
long or produced the breath of albums they have to date.

There are so many different scenarios that could have caused this
cancellation. What caused the cancellation is not necessarily ours to know,
which avoids apportionment of blame on individuals, events etc.

The fact of the matter is that the Oils have made a decision not to go ahead
with the tour at present.
Let's respect that the decision is theirs to make, and that they will
hopefully see the Euroworkers soon.
