So here’s my few thoughts.

There wouldn’t have been great music like this, had she not existed and had the job she had.

Somewhere today I read an article which pretty much backed that last sentence up. The anger that came from a Tory Britain and the music which happened was a GOOD thing for music.

Obviously, the world isn’t about music, it’s one of those things which exists like cheese, beer, crisps.. you don’t *need* it, but it’s there to be had.

I’d never vote Tory. She made it that way.

I don’t want to give the woman any more attention. She’ll have her weeks worth, and then hopefully will be forgotten so we can get back to news like North Korea and so on, which is FAR more important and scary.

I feel like it would be mean to put the Hefner song up. I love ‘We Love The City’ and have sung along to the song many times at their gigs… so instead have some Billy:

I was a miner
I was a docker
I was a railway man
Between the wars
I raised a family
In times of austerity
With sweat at the foundry
Between the wars

I paid the union and as times got harder
I looked to the government to help the working man
And they brought prosperity down at the armory
We’re arming for peace, me boys
Between the wars

I kept the faith and I kept voting
Not for the iron fist but for the helping hand
For theirs is a land with a wall around it
And mine is a faith in my fellow man
Theirs is a land of hope and glory
Mine is the green field and the factory floor
Theirs are the skies all dark with bombers
And mine is the peace we know
Between the wars

Call up the craftsmen
Bring me the draftsmen
Build me a path from cradle to grave
And I’ll give my consent
To any government
That does not deny a man a living wage

Go find the young men never to fight again
Bring up the banners from the days gone by
Sweet moderation
Heart of this nation
Desert us not, we are
Between the wars
