Billy Bragg

This blog stands full square with The Bard of Barking. He's been receiving hate emails from Friends of George Galloway after he did a fundraiser for Oona King.
At the general election expected in May, her 10,057 majority is being challenged by former Labour MP George Galloway, who is standing for the anti-war Respect party. Following the gig at the Spitz club in Spitalfields, Bragg received a series of derogatory emails from opponents of the war.

He admitted people had been "disappointed in him", but said opposing Labour could split the vote and let the Tories in. "We were misled over weapons of mass destruction. But there was never a Labour government that didn't disappoint me in some way," he said.

"People are angry because they have been misled. But I don't see how handing Bethnal Green and Bow to the Tories helps the people of Basra. I signed up to fight the Tories and the BNP. That is why I am here."
Vote R*E*S*P*E*C*T and elect a Tory.

As the man said Wearing badges is not enough in days like these.
