Greetings sisters and brothers! I hope that all goes well with you and yours, and that your spirits have risen with the temperatures following the worst winter we’ve experienced for the last three decades? Those of you who have followed my work over the years will have undoubtedly realised that I’ve always taken a keen interest in politics. I was writing lyrics about political, social and environmental issues long before it became fashionable to do so.
Thirteen years of Labour ‘government’ have left Britain in a very sorry state indeed. Our nation is practically bankrupt and our society is in complete and utter disarray. Despite this fact our country is currently at war in foreign lands; engaged in the illegal conflicts for oil instigated by George W. Bush and Tony Blair. These needless wars will eventually prove to have had absolutely no winners whatsoever; and by then will have cost countless innocent lives and many billions of squandered Pounds and Dollars that could in my most humble opinion have been far better spent upon schools, hospitals and renewable sources of energy in order to combat the imminent threat to our fragile planet now posed by drastic climate change.
I have studied each of the U.K. party manifestos, and after much careful deliberation I’ve decided to cast my vote for the Liberal Democrats on May 6th www.libdems.org.uk Nick Clegg and the Lib Dems have by far the best policies; and are the only party to display the fresh, honest approach to politics that Britain so desperately needs during the difficult times ahead. The result of the forthcoming General Election will have profound and far-reaching effects for us all, so whatever your political allegiance it is vital that you use your vote and make sure your voice is heard. A great many people have fought and died so that we may live today in a democracy, and we each owe it to their memories to make the effort and visit a Polling Station on May 6th.
