As always you miss the point in the usual attempt to sling shit, Dave. Usually ably assisted by your Mudcat mates.
The point I was making - who would mastermind a public intrusion into what consenting adults get up to, usually - it has to be said - whenever it ventures forth from folk festivals and country jamborees to mass indifference. the image of morris dancers folornly jumping around to the leaden beat of a drum, melodeon and badly strummed guitar in a shopping precint near you - will be a familiar one to many of us.
it goes against the tolerant and laid back tenor of the times we live in. I think it will be interesting to see what next artistic endeavours comes under attack from this group.
They're going for the weakest first, like Mrs Whitehouse did with Gay News and the National theatre a generation ago.
