Subject: RE: Our ghastly folk tradition

Since you are the person who wrote that Gordon Ramsey personally cooked for 700+ troops, you are probably not the best person to criticise people's use of the English language old fruit.

Now why not go back down below the line and carry on defending US military policy in Iraq?
is where Matthew Parris wrote that cyclists should be decapitated.

Here is what he wrote:

"A festive custom we could do worse than foster would be stringing piano wire across country lanes to decapitate cyclists".

And here is where he apologised.

Here is what he wrote:

"I offended many with my Christmas attack on cyclists. It was meant humorously but so many cyclists have taken it seriously that I plainly misjudged. I am sorry".

Now perhaps his description of a traditional singer was meant humourously and perhaps he could apologise for that if enough pressure was applied to him.

I apologise most sincerely if something that simple confused you.
