Bonzo/Boko...Whoever.
If it's all working class bigotry, and inverted snobbery, why on earth did you bother to listen to it in the first place?
Ah, get it now....You're a fan of the "Home Service". the band , not the Radio station! (and wish you could download recordings of same...(It's called stealing where I come from!)
Sorry to inform you Boko/Bonzo.
The company that performed the music for this programme that you so despise, on the whole have first hand connections with what was the mining industry. They were there...Where were you?
And at the end of the day, It was a fitting resume of the feelings of ordinary people/workers at the time.
I'd get back to campaigning for Mr Cameron if I were you. (or are you off on another trip to sunnier climes?)
