Only two weeks to go

Billy Bragg at the Tolpuddle Martyrs Festival 2009. Is that a big wobbly sausage in your pocket, or are you just pleased to see me?

Yes it is only two weeks until the big wobbly sausage!

If that makes it sound like I am losing my marbles a bit, I refer you to this story in the Telegraph, specifically the end bit.The story is about Billy Bragg, and at the end he gives his considered opinion on the general election.

I think it’s like a big wobbly sausage and a really strange pair of trousers and the sausage sticking out of the front of the trousers.  And people saying: ‘I don’t know, is that a sausage sticking out of those trousers or is it a —-?”

Move over Eric Cantona, with your seagulls following the trawler, there is a new champion of the non sequitur!

    Would the Tolpuddle Martyrs voted tactically – if they had the vote ?

    The answer leads me to think Billy Bragg is a w##### whose lost the political plot.

    They didn’t have the vote, even the 1832 Reform Act would not have led to labourers without any property getting the vote.

    And of course back then the choice would have been Tory or Whig, so even if they’d had a vote, they probably would have voted for the lessor of two evils.

    I can see Bragg’s point where he lives, if you see the Tories as the bigger problem.
