There now follows a Party Political Broadcast on behalf of the Bard Party:

When I wrote Sons and Daughters (of Robin Hood) I’d just had what I hoped would not be a premonition of things to come. I am deeply saddened that my premonition has become reality.

Attempting to sell off publicly owned forests, the bedroom tax, fracking, and now the badger cull. All actions that go against overall public opinion. Sometimes it’s hard to remember that we live in a democracy.

I wept on Monday night as I thought of the killing that would be taking place in Albion’s countryside in spite of the scientific evidence.

This song is in honour of the protestors and activists out there who are risking their freedom, the bloggers and writers, the Facebook sharers, the letter writers, all of us who will not just believe what we read in the press.

If you thought that we would do nothing you’ve misunderstood.
