This is as quoted, a total misuse of a very well considered song. I too can see no conection with the reasons for the rally. I thank you greatly Helen for posting this thread from my purely selfish point of view, what a great song this is, I had never heard it before and certainly will hear it often in the future.
I am leaving shortly to go to Manchester Airport to pick my wife Di up as Sheffield in from Adelaide, I will spend time researching the author and trying to obtain a CD. Had Australia not had the 12 week limit I feel Di would have stayed much longer,I thank Australia for that rule, I have missed her, she has been staying with her £10 Pom brother.
Thanks again Helen and I must say hi to you Sandra
