Thread Name: UK Government to license Morris Dancing
Subject: RE: UK Government to license Morris Dancing
So, if I was enjoying a pint in a pub and suddenly and spontaneously a whole bunch of oddly dressed men started Morris Dancing, it would be okay? But if they said, "Our dancing starts in five minutes!" it would have to be licensed they could be fined? Morris Dancing inside pubs seems to me to be a chancy thing at best -- ribbons whipping around, getting in your ale and so forth. And those sticks!
Frankly, I don't see the point of the whole license thing, unless it's to make money and give the government even more control.
Come to think of it, Bush will probably reciprocate on this side of the pond because Blair supported his thing. Probably include Morris Dancers in the list of terrorists.
