We’re in the midst of another Tory mess. Where are the angry Punk balladeers?
Tom took the Punk rage and married it to good lyrics and politics.
In the days of the seventies when unemployment was rampant and the Tories ran their war against the Trade Unions, Gays, Liberals and anybody who cared. While she was busy making deals with Murdock and setting up the capitalist State with Reagan which would result in the financial crash and the emergence of the super-rich billionaires, some people were protesting.
This wasn’t a time for sitting on the fence. You were on one side or the other. It was easy:
Fairness, justice, tolerance and liberalism
Greed, selfishness, intolerance and winner takes all – scum to the wall
“Better Decide Which Side You’re On”
All you downtrodden people
Always bear the brunt
Just sit back on you fat backsides
Till you have to face the Front
Waiting till the bullyboys get you
Don’t make no kind of sense
