Thread Name: Bertsongs? (songs of A. L. 'Bert' Lloyd)
Subject: RE: Bertsongs?
on which we'll probably never agree.
Phil, I don't actually have an opinion. But it pisses me off somewhat, when I see that people can't somehow see that we are all a bit like flies frozen in the amber of time.
Why didn't bert Lloyd and Ewan macColl take themselves as seriously as wot we do. Well actually they did. the only bloody reason you're here is cos of what they did. They did the best they could in the circumstances and with the insight the and expertise THEY had. Which may I suppose not have been up to the scholastic standards of some round here.
Why didn't they see it like I see it. the same reason Inspector Morse doesn't use a mobile phone in the early episodes.
A future generation will ask why you lot didn't storm the BBC and get things done, and left it to them to sort out.
