Thread Name: Show Of Hands - over the top?-Arrogance, Ignorance
Subject: RE: Show Of Hands - over the top?-Arrogance, Ignorance
As I replied to the post above, at the time...I've not seen Show of Hands for well over 2 years now. I have also, as you well know, never met either of them. And why would you think that Steve Knightley would even begin to imagine I was at the Folk Awards, Diane?

Look, just so as you two get this straight...I used to write to someone who was in contact with Steve and Phil all the time, and at no time was there ever any mention of Steve shaking in his shoes, nor of Phil crying in his bedsocks at night over me...Honest! :0)

I was also in contact with Vaughan, their manager, over on myspace, about a few things now and then, and again, Vaughan always wrote to me in a polite, kind manner.

And it's a mystery, ain't it, why Steve would have written his song on Cruel River, which he was inspired to write because of my saying that 'all would be quiet on the South Western Front' from now on'..and he wrote to thank me for that little bit of inspiration, via our mutual friend.

I'm sorry if that incenses you, girls, but...c'est la vie.

Oh, and if you can find anything remotely 'boybandish' in my post from last night about where their song 'Arrogance, Ignorance & Greed' takes me, then please post the slobberings here....because it seems to me that you guys read completely different posts to the ones I put down.

Now stop moaning at ME and get yourselves writing about your new heroes, because we're all gettin' awful fed up of you both posting Phil Beer's letter all the time, in the vain hope that it'll embarrass the hell out of me.

If a song is good, I'll write about it, although I'd prefer to have the utmost respect for those who've written it, but there ya go..I wrote about it, now you girls go off and write about it too, because the world would LOVE to know what you think, rather than your continuous boring 'Lizzie's been rejected!' syndrome....

If you like Steve and Phil so much, respect them so much, then bloody well stop copying and pasting and use your own words to write inspirational words about them.

Thankooooo :0)
