All the same the show must go on and I truly wish that all rational English Dancesport athletes to seriously consider the acts of BDC.
The Crystal Cup Competition have its supporters through out the world. They are not alone in promoting Dancesport as a sporting event. The IDSF letter to BDC is enclosed hereunder. I do not know what the future is going to be, this matter will be debated at the coming IDSF AGM in Luxembourg. Action will have to be taken and if this is the attitude of BDC so be it. You reap what you sow.
With the Royal Wedding of William and Catherine just around the corner, I hope you do not consider it in bad taste for me to borrow a quote by King George the VI* made to the English people in September 1940. I am going to substitute certain words to bring this quote relevant to the acts of the BDC. Perhaps it is an exaggeration of the situation but in essence the effect is the same.
*"Like so many of our people, we have now had a personal experience of BDC stupidity which only strengthens the resolution of all of us to fight through to final victory."
On behalf of MYDF, I do wish the Royal Couple a Blissful wedding and to the wonderful British people for keeping this Historical Institution alive today. A Happy Holiday and God Bless!
