GUEST,achmelvich Folk Singers who are Politically Conservative (290* d) RE: Folk Singers who are Politically Conservative 08 Jan 16

as a general rule i'd say (again) the right don't make art , their purpose is to buy and sell it

i'd question if any country ever wins a war - certainly no individual involved wins anything. many folk songs are written about the poor bloody infantry, press ganged into fighting for the wealthy and powerful. such songs express a common humanity and acceptance of such matters as liberty, equality, fraternity and a love of peace. and love. all concepts routinely sneered at or mistrusted by the right wing.

if britain had shared a very long border with nazi germany, it's safe to say that we would have many collaborators - particularly among the upper classes and their gullible fools in ukip and the tory party.

ake - before you come out with this socialist nonsense again, do you still think that immigrants are responsible for the poverty and other social problems in glasgow? are you an international socialist who believes in equality and co-operation between all workers across the world. or a national socialist?
