Thread Name: Trad English song & the BNP
Subject: RE: Trad English song & the BNP
Kim Howells was far more specific than that; his idea of hell was three folk singers in a pub near Wells, a concept which Steve Knightley incorporated into the rather naively conceived Roots. Unsurprisinly, the dim dickheads of the BNP completely misinterpreted the song's intention and stuck it up on their site, much to the author's dismay. Can there be a clearer illustration of the vigilance required to safeguard our cultura; inheritance from fascists? As Ms Carthy says, it's not funny and nor are Koch's trivialising attempts to make it so.
