..but on another tack, I wonder why it is you dislike 'the farmer' so. Is is jealousy? Is it a latent feeling from childhood Beatrix Potter stories? Is it guilt at buying cheap shite from Tesco? Is it a burning socialistic conviction that you and your mates could do a better job of husbandry? Or is it just that you feel our three-year-old people carrier is a bit naff and you'd rather drive a 15-year-old Land Rover but can't get hold of one?
It does amuse me how many people will happily sing songs about farming and 'the country life' without having a fucking clue as to what it actually entails. In that sense it is sad that folk music has become a pastime for bourgeois urban wankers - mostly teachers and IT spods with a handful of social workers and other useful sorts...;-)
