Subject: RE: 2008 R2 Young Folk Award - What Happened
"I think Jim Moray who presented the award said something along the lines of "dragging folk into the future"

I said no such thing. It's one of my most hated phrases and I wouldn't inflict it on anyone.

I'm increasingly sickened by Mudcat which has turned from "highly opinionated but essentially fair" to downright nasty recently. You should be ashamed of yourselves - the broadcast of the finals hasn't even gone out yet, Megan and Joe haven't made an album or played any gigs yet and you're all willing to judge based only on hearsay and a myspace page containing a completely different set of songs in a different style. Say what you like about me, but please please stop kicking two very talented performers (one of whom is 15...) before they've had a chance to prove themselves.

Give them time to develop before you judge. It's only fair.
