Like a child in a shop who constantly cries for the sweetie, UKIP have constantly and doggedly dragged immigration to the heart of the county’s political issues, smokescreening away from the efforts of the ConDems and subsequently Pure Tory governments to hammer down against the poor and minorities following their Etonian blueprint. This has led to a rise in the far right, not just in militant forms like the EDL and Britain First, but also a worrying undercurrent of casual cursing towards ethnic minorities. Whether that’s arguing with strangers in the pub or blocking fascist marches or more active in shutting down detention centres and systems.
Whether or not it only exists in my leftie echo-chamber, I don’t know, but I do want to write a more accessible piece for audiences in any context, in any open mic. If you’re in the music scene, write yourself an anti-fascist song for the music open mics. If you’re in the punk scene, think hard about whether your songs are generic posturing to dunk punx or actually have impact.
