Come TogetherPosted: July 6, 2017
I’ve largely kept out of the post-election scraps but I was heartened by the shift towards the “for the many” policies being put forward by a rejuvenated and radicalised Labour Party. Astounded that the Conservatives are clinging on to power despite the blandest of Leader and an appalling campaign. More so as they have just carried this on through the Brexit negotiations and, in particular, the reaction to the Grenfell Tower disaster. And this week we have the audacity of Sajid Javid shifting the blame from the absolute ineptness of a Conservative, yes a Conservative, run Council to all local authorities without even choking on his own irony at the fact that, if anything has been the cause of lack of trust in local authorities, it’s the incessant cuts that his government have forced on them. The goddamn arrogance!
Largely putting this on here because I saw Primal Scream in Hull the other week and Bobby G was in fine form. Like Massive Attack, the point is mostly made away from the music but there’s a point to Come Together that seems to fit the mood right now.
