    Oh Well, That’s It, Then! Gotta Be Labour!


    Any UK voters still to make up their minds with just a dozen and a few more days to go until the General Election must have been grateful for that letter in The Guardian this week.

    It makes dilemmas so much simpler to resolve when the distilled wisdom of one’s community is represented in irrefutable form.

    We are musicians, artists, rappers and grime MCs, and we will be voting for Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour party this election.

    Any momentary hesitation about following such erudite examples must have melted away, like snow off the proverbial dry-stone-wall in a Cumbrian springtime…

    ….when the lead signatory of the ‘Epistle of The Grimy Ones to The Electorate’ is revealed as a person who rejoices in the name of …

    Stormzy!” ‘

    ‘Stormzy?’ ‘Grime?’ ‘Rappers?’

    ‘Musicians?’

    Musicians?’

    How come these cacophonists are not immediately called out by the many British people who still understand the correct meaning of the word ‘music?’

    BTW, has nobody else wondered about the increasing infantilisation of British life, with thousands voting to name an important ship ‘Boatie McBoatface..

    ..and all kinds of ‘arts experts’ perennially lauding a cowardly grafitti-dauber who skulks behind the diddums name ‘Banksy!’

      If any voters are influenced by this Guardian ‘epistle’ then I pity them.
      I like classical music ( and the Eurythmics! ) but if any famous conductors or any member of any band were so presumptuous as to think their political opinions might influence my vote, I would laugh in their faces, and very possibly say something very rude, like ‘who do you think you are!’

      I do share your views on the use of baby-talk by adults.
      It’s quite acceptable when talking to babies, but people who feel they have to use it in grown-up discourse are suitable subjects for a psychologists’ seminar.

      Rap, hip-hop, and whatever ‘grime’ might be.
      It’s an insult to music to include such talentless noise in any discussion of music.
      I tried to watch some of the videos in which that kind of ‘bands’ perform and it was a repulsive experience.
      Badly-dressed males clutching at their groins as if the noises they were making was the result of pain enanating from that area ot theit bodies.
