I had the misfortune to listen to BBC Radio 4 “Saturday Live” this morning, presented by Rev Richard Coles and Sian Williams. The special guest was Billy Bragg, yeah, I know. He was introduced as an intrepid fighter against “fascism” and the entire tone of the interview as simpering sycophancy. Bragg moaned about the fact that too many posh boys were in the charts these days and he proclaimed that you just had to look at Mumford and Sons “to know” their background. You just have to look at Comrade Billy to see the giant chips he has on both shoulders. Bragg articulates a hard left meme that resonates easily at the BBC…. his cliched anachronistic left wingism fits in perfectly with the State Broadcaster. Here is his bedsit in the frontline in ..erm..west Dorset. Power to the people!
