Naked Morris. My God! That is an ugly thought.

I don't think the Catch 22 really applies. Local nespapers are always desperate for news, and it really would be pushing at an open door.

Of course that is another place where leverage could be applied - it'd be easy enough for a local reporter to plant the idea in the mind of a council contact with a view to working up a story.

I think the thing to do is try to avoid having the folk aspect in the limelight, because that is defined as a funny and ecentric, but to concentrate rather on the fact that the law penalises the good old pub piano singalong.
