You thought was offensive. You should have been living in a mining area when that little bugger was a trusted minion of the blessed Margaret.

While I don't agree that English folk music is ghastly in its entirety - it does have some fairly ghastly manifestations. if you've never sat in a folk club, sometimes one that you're actually running and thought, what the hell am I doing with my life - you've not actually had much experience of any kind of folk music - English or otherwise.
