LETTERS / Morris dancers demand the ancient right to make merry

From Mr Bob Price Sir: I am disappointed that the Independent has seen fit to give even mocking credibility to the ideas promulgated by Binky Braithwaite ("Death to jangling idiots in cricket whites", 12 December). The English need no encouragement to bedismissive of their traditional culture and value it less than does almost any other nation. Could you, for example, conceive of publishing a similar article about Indian traditional culture - especially one containing an overt incitement to commit violence?

Yours sincerely, BOB PRICE Squire of Leeds Morris Men Horsforth, Leeds 13 December
