Thread Name: Trad English song & the BNP
Subject: RE: Trad English song & the BNP
Maybe Eliza, Kate and others who might be attracting the unwanted admiration of the BNP could think of a few songs to include in their sets that would make their position clear and make these louts feel uncomfortable. They'd need to be English songs, either traditional or "in-the-tradition" more modern songs, of a left-wing or feminist or pro-immigrant slant.
I'm not suggesting such singers turn themselves into female versions of Billy Bragg, but come on, can't we think of a few songs to suggest, songs that could be slipped into the set list of anyone who had suspicions about the motives of some of their audience?
