RC 221: Stuff the Jubilee

Another 10 years and another Jubilee – this one the Diamond Jubilee, and then shortly after the Olympics for the full Union (I’m Alright) Jack overdrive, waved by the Dumb Flag Scum. More nationalism, more strangeness, more sucking up to Liz to try and get a gong by people who will claim that they are cool & rock n’ roll at other times. Off with their heads! Even weirdly Viv Westwood is at it, and Tinie Tempah. WTF? The world is going mad…

I didn’t talk too much about the rather obvious correlations in the show – that we have cuts, a ruined economy, a conservative government and a wide divide between Rich Queen and the poor – just like in 1977. So I decided to create the Anti-Street Party, the musical accompaniment to those who won’t go and drink tea from union jack tea cups, wear silly hats or put up the bunting. Same goes for London 2012 and it’s Taste Exclusion Zones and frankly SHIT logo.

Especially if you’re a sex worker or homeless (or made homeless by the Games) or just don’t fit, and we’ll be paying this off for decades to come. No, not the sponsors or corporates or the VIPs and Human Rights abusers attending the Games for free, we will pay for it all. Funny how the branding police enforce a clampdown to protect the games, but the sponsors won’t be paying for all it, and will make a pretty penny off the Games isn’t it?
