Blog: The Guardian wants Stonehenge revels banned

Jonathan Jones, in his blog at The Guardian, wants Stonehenge midsummer revels banned because he says there is no historical tradition for them.

He says: "The ancient stones should not be reduced to a stage for feeble pseudo-religious, pseudo-communal fantasies."

Well, that's a bit controversial I would have said. What do you think?

Seems to me just a troll post to increase the comment count! No reason afaics to worry about what people do at the monument as long as they aren't damaging it. His notion that the stones are being somehow "reduced" seems more mystical to me than any of the celebrants' beliefs.
