Subject: RE: TV Ad: Folk music ridiculed - again
It's fine by me, Sminky, you don't need my permission for anything. No offence intended!

But d'you not think it says something about the sensitive little flowers that are the whingeing folkies of this parish, when stuff like this causes so much angst and handwringing? Those on the thread who are firing purple prose off to advertising standards or whoever, are potentially making this strange little world look even stranger. That's ok though. Eccentricity and handbags-at-dawn are fine things and probably far more traditional than most folk music...

Having said that, when I got to the impassionated Is there no end to this? at the end of your OP, it gave me my first decent laugh of the day. For this I truly thank you.

In answer to your earlier question, one of them has to be Peter Bellamy, of course.
