Subject: RE: Alcohol - PC correct songs
The most interesting thing in the original article was the statement that "What shall we do with the drunken sailor" was written in 1891. When you consider the endless arguments on the origins of folksongs that occur here and elsewhere, how reassuring to have an incontrovertible fact. It must be true, it was in the Telegraph.
