Howard Jones and GSS:
Almost no one, in the real world, knows what the EFDSS is. So any statement from them on this issue would have no impact.
Also, the EFDSS is not going to come out in favour or otherwise of a tradition that has no cogent evidence to support its assertions as to blackface.
Whatever, as I said before, we live in a multi-cultural society in 2017 and if Border want to continue the "disguise" conceit then they need to recognise the obvious, even if mistaken, sensitivities of a multi-cultural society.
What plays well in yokel Lincolnshire won't get quite the same reception in London.
