punkfolkrocker BS: Brexit & other UK political topics (2456* d) RE: BS: Brexit & other UK political topics 14 Oct 21

Steve - you protested donkeys years ago before the internet was even a twinkle in anyone's imagination..

well done for that..

I marched for the miners;
and occupied an accademic faculty for a week,
for fuck knows who can remember now whatever cause that was for..???

[Not sure if I was an actual fully accepted student socialist worker then, they were really stuck up elitists on our campus].

I protested in a rabble yelling abuse at a tory mp arrogant enough to visit our lefty Polytechnic..

Even came too close to chucking a spunk filled johnny at the queen mum,
before I snapped out of it and realised the crowd would rip me apart
before the police even got to me...

.. and various other youthful futile petty protests...

I do still wish I had set fire to that rolls royce,
though again had sense enough to withdraw sensibly in tactical retreat.
The fate of the owners golf clubs had to make do as a symbolic gesture of class war defiance, and militant cycling..

.. and I wrote some pithy punk rock protest songs..

40 years ago, I made serious principled decisions how I would not live my life,
and stubbornly stuck to them no matter how self defeating it's turned out for my financial well being..

[It's a lot easier being an eco warrior in a North Wales TeePee, on a trust fund...]

However our living in the past, dwelling on old battle glories, is not helping persuade back near enough Labour voters NOW...

Just rewatched the first episode of "The Young Ones" this evening..
We can't stay being Rick for all the rest of our lives...

Then again, I have avoided ending up a middle class self-rightious cartoon lefty blowhard...
