A sad response

How sad! I refer of course to the letter in The Village entitled “End this Morris tradition”.

I wonder how many of your readers, on seeing your magazine on their doormat, were “horrified” to see the cover shot?

Or I wonder if, like me, they didn’t even give the slightest thought to whether or not it was offensive?

I’m not particularly a “Morris dance” fan. I look upon it more as harmless entertainment, as I expect the dancers do.

With the world in the state that it is today I think the writer would do well to heed their own final paragraph and instead of asking, “Isn’t it time for the village to move on?”, they should, in fact, move on themselves and stop harping on about a part in history that they are powerless to change.
