Doctor John Tolpuddle 2000 (18) RE: Tolpuddle 2000 18 Jul 00


I'd like to go to that one year, The Shambles. I have to say that "The World Turned UpsideDown" is a terrible distortion of history. You can't judge then by now. Is there any other examples in folk music I wonder: an idea for a new thread perhaps. I'll start it.Writing centuries after the event the "Diggers" are seen as proto-communists or good old union men. Winstanley's men were just one of many crazy groups thrown up during the Commonwealth period and certainly not the most attractive - if you have the patience to write Winstanley's writings. Initially they were regarded as harmless lunatics after a visit by Thomas Fairfax but their behaviour went just too far. Dr John
