Greg ...Get a grip   "indescribably loathsome".
That might apply to the politics of our present leaders, but not Ewan Maccoll.
He music and his politics inspired most of the folk movement in my youth, myself included.
The manner in which these "politics" were applied in Russia or China bears no relation to the vision that MacColl portrayed.

He was by far the finest of the "modern" singers and writers and it was his "indescribably loathsome" politics above all else which made him so ....Ake
