Ridiculous to suggest that Derek Broadbent is biased towards a band he conducted over 30 years ago. I also wish people would stop trying to rationalise adjudicatiors' results - it is by its very nature an irrational thing. When you ask a man (or two, or three, or even the very occasional lady) for his/her/their personal opinion on a performance, it is going to be just that; their personal opinion. As we know not everyone shares the same opinion - the world would be very dull. As for 4barsrest, I think it's not unfair that their predisposition towards bands with a Welsh element is widely documented, even if not perhaps accurate. Anyway, just another man (or men, or woman's, or whoever's) opinion. It stands as an opinion, but (unluckily for Dyke it would seem) they are not employed to adjudicate contests.
