well I alerted friends to this, thinking they would do a better job. He, of the duo, commented they already had a song that fitted.

But, you know, when a song wants to come out it won't be held.
So I have a new song, first one in 12 years!

I did tinker with the idea of calling it "Blair*. Which Project?", but somehow think that wouldn't impress the judges. I am still looking for a better title. Subject: the poverty aspect, not the polemic on socialism.

Not that the song stands an overly good chance - but hey! It's mine & I like it. Wiki on: the Road to Wigan Pier

*Orwell's real name.
