Subject: RE: blacked up morris dancers abused in uk
I have nothing against Morris Dancers. I suspect I know more Morris dancers than most. I suppose I do tend to think the music could frequently do with a bit of a kick up the bum with a more spirited rhythm section.

What i was saying was if the national pastimes had a league table - with watching telly being Manchester United. Morris dancing would somewhere round about Tranmere Rovers.

So how come a telly crew and reporters just happen to be on hand when some Morris dancers decide to dance in Brum town centre. A place usually associated with tight lipped Brummies dashing from one department store to another.
Then there are press releases to all the papers. Gotta be. Morris Dancing in front of Brum town hall is never even a news story.

Call me suspicious. but I spy dirty work afoot.
