Thread Name: Our ghastly folk tradition
Subject: RE: Our ghastly folk tradition
He made a disparaging remark after the short clip of an Irish unaccompanied singer, then said something to the effect. "That ghastly warbling makes me grateful that ???? came along and saved us from our own ghastly English traditional music" Or words to that effect. I was hopping mad, Matthew Parris has a always been on the waspish side, but a remark like that is a display of total ignorance on his part.
I wonder how he would feel if someone were to characterise his snippy remark as typical of the sort of waspish remarks made by many gay men.
Oh I am so cross at him, what an arrogant tosser!
