GUEST,eliza c England Lacks Talent (55* d) RE: England Lacks Talent 22 Jan 05


Mike,
I don't think the English have to be embarrassed about the British Empire any more than the Scots and Welsh do. In moments like this, I look at this quote I found in a cracker somewhere:
"The ordinary working people of England were never masters of an empire; they were that empire's first colony, and its first victims".
Feels weird to be culturally crippled by an Empire we never had.

As for lacking talent, that's obviously rubbish. But a big, slick festival like CC wants to put on big, slick bands-do we have those? Do we want them?
