Subject: RE: blacked up morris dancers abused in uk
padgett - Well you can say all that in such a dismissive manner...

But aren't 'non folkies' a significant majority of the UK population...???

...that's by your reckoning a hell of a lot of idiots..

Idiots who by sheer numbers hold a lot more sway, with media, public opinion leaders, and public policy legislators...

A damn sight more than the slither of 'majority' that won Brexit... 😜

This is why it's essential for survival of BlackUp / Face morris and Coconutters, that the care-holders of these traditions
present and explain themselves to a wider public in a far more intelligent and considerate manner..

Arrogance, insensitivity and a superiority complex will lead to their downfall.....????
