Brilliant video. The fact that it's being banned means that millions more people will seek it out. Just like I did just now!

Tricky. I would not really want to open the door to any party getting unrestricted air/viewing time. It might not be the party you would like another time.

On balance, I think the BBC compromise of letting people know where to find it but not broadcasting it is the best of the bad options available.

Until the Tories, the Greens, the purples, the yellows and the oranges promote a song it would be difficult to broadcast it within 6 weeks of an election and remain impartial. All broadcaster are bound by UK statute to deliver balance. Radio music programmes don't hector their audience. Unlike some neo-folk performers.

Could go up on YouTube. They are still hosting diatribes from extremist Imams. So why not a simple protest song? BTW don't forget to watch the 'Power of Song' documentary by Pete Seeger.
