Rifleman (inactive) Folk Against Fascism (980* d) RE: Folk Against Fascism 10 Jul 09

"Even though Show of Hands have disgraced themselves with their anti-BNP rhetoric, no "British" Asian or Black "British" could ever write a song such as "Roots."

There ARE certain elements, and they know who they are, who have long considered this song to be a "right wing" rant. The same crowd, I might add, who consider Countrylife by Steve Knightley to be playing into the hands of The Country Alliance, where as Countrylife, infact, laments the loss of rural housing to the 'townie' set who have taken the houses and made them into holiday homes, empty most of the year.

and no, much to surprise of Messers Knightley & Beer, Roots has not been adopted as a BNP anthem, it's that sort of rumour that hinders the real work at hand
