Nigerian musician/performer Patti Boulaye is on Woman's Hour, and is talking about how she was influenced by a certain dance extravaganza when putting together her new Africa-themed West End musical:.

"You used to say 'Ireland' to me, I'd think 'terrorists'. Now you say 'Ireland', I think 'Riverdance'."

Wow, thanks!

Oh, that's exactly how I'd like my country to be thought of, too! Though, what are our equivalents? Colonialism and Andrew Lloyd Webber?

She was the one who famously joined the Tories and got gloriosly misquoted by the Guardian as being in favour of "apartheid" when she had only said she supported "the party"!

Terrorists and Riverdance. It could have been worse. She could have said leprechauns.

This is terrible to admit, but it's so nice to hear about someone other than an American making such an ass of themselves.
