Thread Name: Change at the BBC folk awards
Subject: RE: Change at the BBC folk awards
No-one here hates Emma, Lizzie, as far as I can see. I think some people wish she'd come back and engage around her opinions rather than use Mudcat for hit 'n' run advertising. In any case, as she's a journalist who has set herself up as a commentator/blogger on the folk scene, she's bound to express some views that not everyone agrees with. Personally, I read her blog from time to time and enjoy some of what she writes, but I happen to think her crusade about the Folk Awards is misguided.It's her right to promote those views, it's my right to respond with slightly sarky comments about folkmasons and gimps. I'd happily have that discussion with Emma if she'd come back...
