Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Keep you doped with religion and sex and tv
And you think youre so clever and classless and free
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see
A working class hero is something to be

There's room at the top they are telling you still,
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill,
If you want to be like the folks on the hill,
A working class hero is something to be.

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg

Thanks for that one, MfM.

(A trip down Memory Lane: I was a grad student, it must have been towards the end of 1970. Some friends somewhat mysteriously had me sit in an armchair, handed me a joint and told me to take a good hit or two, then put headphones on me and played that track loud. Ooomphbadaboomkaboom! I play it loud often still, and it hasn't lost one iota of its meaning and power for me.)
