GUEST,Volgadon England's National Musical-Instrument? (1943* d) RE: England's National Musical-Instrument? 16 Oct 08

Wavey the racist dragon...?"...false and defamatory language from Ruth Archer/Joan Crumb who works for the National Council - who, in my opinion, should have words with her.

Shouldn't the UN get involved?

Volgadon (who somehow reposted what has been deleted?!): I'm no expert on Israeli music (although Inbal Dor has been on my myspace Top Friends for ages)...but am surprised that you seem to be suggesting there is no such thing?...

Deleted? Not that I'm aware of.
I couldn't care less about Inbal Dor, have no idea who she is and don't see what a myspace friend has to do with anything. I could be top friends with Charles Dickens on that thing!
You missed the point. Israeli music IS multicultural, it has a bit of everything.

Granma of the "saggy old tits" - "Not sure what you Australians call it" (Granma) I have to repeat repeat that I'm an English repat - actually born in Manchester the day Alf Ramsey's English team won the world cup of football.

So, should being born on that day give you special priviledges, or ensure your Englishness? I'm sure plenty of Pakistans and West Indians were born on that day, in England.

Catspaw - more false and defamatory language from one who has both whinged about being deleted and almost pleaded for Mudcat to host my website.

-Baldrick, do you know what irony is?
-Yes, it's like bronzy and goldy.


Nobody accused you of being a racist according to your own narrow, shallow and inaccurate definition, although you do seem to hammer on AMERICAN culture, which puts a lie to your statement.

Now, back on thread: at that above site, you may see and hear my beloved tenor recorder/English flute/"little organ" (William Shakespeare, Hamlet), which, to drop a clanger, is, in my opinion, a definite rival to the bell as Englands national musical instrument...

You mean a continental instrument used in a continental court setting? Hamlet Prince of...?
Were Shakespeare to write a play about the Grand Mogul and include a line about the sitar, calling it that wondrous instrument of joy, could we consider it an English instrument?
