Jolly Old Morris Men

There is not enough Morris Dancing in this town for my liking. I cannot remember seeing a single Morris Man since I have lived here, and to my mind that is a disgrace. It is May Day soon and will we see them on the street? Unlikely.

Look at them!! What a great English tradition! There should be more rural jollity brought to the city. Less protests about foxes and more Morris Men I say. Perhaps a petition is in order to see that all boys are taught Morris Dancing in school.

Talking of which, when I was at school we were taught "English Country Dancing". Does that still go on in school today? It's not like it is a life skill, but it shoudl certainly be on the national curriculum.
