we’re fairly used to political turmoil in the UK right now. what at first appeared to be a cocky Cameron bluff to appease the Tory swing towards UKIP in 2015 has descended into complete and utter chaos like we’ve never seen before.
and today, the openly racist and homophobic bigot Boris Johnson becomes our Prime Minister. the man who said that black people have lower IQs; black children are ‘piccaninnies’ with ‘water melon smiles’; gay men are ‘bum boys’; Muslim women wearing burqas resemble ‘bank robbers’ and ‘letterboxes’; and equal marriage resembles bestiality.
can a song change that? no, it can’t. but we’ve specifically chosen today to release the official video for our latest single, ‘#RefugeesWelcome’. the track was released by Fierce Panda on 14 June and is available here via all major digital providers.
