Partick, Politics and Passions

Waiting for the great leap forward

Someone asked me the other day if I liked Billy Bragg – hmm, let me see I replied – 40 something leftie , what do you think ? Was browsing in a bookshop the other day and picked up his book “The Progressive Patriot” – we do live in interesting times as people start to define and debate ‘Englishness’ , and what it’s important to hear (and remember) are the articulate voices and proud traditions of English radicalism that’s as much a part of the Labour movement as Keir Hardie and Red Clydeside. There is more that unites us than divides us.
