"You could have got your own clubs and called them something else - you chose to take over our description"
The Royal "you" Dave - you have alligned yourself with those who justify not presenting folk songs in folk clubs - you claimed to have moved on

The same with the rest really - you say there's nothing wrong with the scene, yoiu seem comfortable that they have driven away thousands because of their policies

Is this notwhat you (not you personally) have done/
"There is always room for traditional music but the fact remains that unless you move with the times, you stand still and get overtaken by something better. "
Something better ?
So it's our fault for expecting to har folk song
You seem to be taking evasive action to divert from your previous statements
Some of us don't believe that there is "anything better" but I'll be fascinated to learn what you believe is

Isn't 'hoist on your own petard' appropriate here?
