back when I was doing my A-levels, my two greatest passions were the Manic Street Preachers and the labour party.
Both were left wing, commited to their beliefs and not afraid to say what they ment, instead of what they thought people wanted to hear.
'New Labour', much like the new (and by new I mean post Ritchie) Manics, seem to have lost all the things that made 'old' labour great. You think
Kinnock would have taken a single ounce of crap from that jumped up gun fanatic, who now leads Blair like a tightly muzzled bitch on a leash? You
think Ritchie would have had a damn thing to do with the trite pop crap the manics now churn out at the demand of thier record company?
Maybe people are less ideolistic today, or maybe the church of $$$ is getting better at disposing of it's heretics.
What ever the truth is, it's a sad one.
