Rock Against Racism - Politics for Dummies



By Brighton Rock

There are plenty of great rock bands with shambolic lifestyles. One of my favourite bands is Alice Cooper (1968-74), and they were certainly no angels. But they knew their limitations, they knew they were no role models, and they stuck to playing Rock and Roll rather than preaching politics.

"If you're listening to a rock star in order to get your information on who to vote for, you're a bigger moron than they are. Why are we rock stars? Because we're morons. We sleep all day, we play music at night and very rarely do we sit around reading the Washington Journal."

Babyshambles however seem to think they can advise us how to vote. The big babies can't take care of themselves and yet think they know best how to look after our country.

Singer Pete Doherty was sentenced to six months imprisonment, later reduced on appeal to two months, for burgling band member Carl Barât's flat, and he was recently jailed for 14 weeks by a court for breaching a probation order after a string of drugs and driving offences. But he's urged fans to vote for any party other than the British National Party, so that's alright then.

Bass player Drew McConnell is now urging London residents to vote in the forthcoming London assembly elections to prevent the British National Party from having a chance of getting a seat. He doesn't care about the future of the indigenous British people. But then he's not even British, he's Irish, so why should he care about us, and why should we listen to him?

No, it might make Babyshambles feel better about their disastrous lives to throw their dummies at the BNP, but grown up indigenous Britons want a civilised, safe London, not a scene of chaos, full of thieves and drug addicts. Don't let the maniacs of multiculturalism turn London into a complete shambles; vote BNP. Goodbye, big babies, we're gonna be elected.

Strider is also a big Rock n Roll fan, and has already booked tickets to see Motorhead later this year. One has to remove the monacle and don a pair of ripped Levis now and again, does one not?

Until then, the writing of high brow ideological affairs takes centre stage.

But in the words of Lemmy, "Live to Win!"

Excellent post, BR, Alice Cooper is my all time favourite as well, saw him at Wembley Arena aeons ago. He cut his head off on stage! Amazing how he managed to replace it just moments later...(-;

Hi! I think that we should not generalize about rock stars..they're not the same!
But I also think that Babyshambles and, even more, their fans are really stupid! How could a normally intelligent person do what Pete Doherty say? No way! A normally intelligent person would never do it.
But we live in a world in which if you are rich and famous, you rule.
I hope British people realize how big and near is the risk of a decadence.
