This was a comment I made in the Guardian regarding Radioheads Thom Yorke who is talking about suing British Prime Minister David Cameron if the Conservative party use his music.
As an artist/musician it would be a luxury for me to choose who likes and doesn’t like my art.
I’m not prepared to censor anyone who would care to look, read or listen to my work. However I agree it would rankle to have a political party who you don’t particularly warm to associate themselves with your art.
It’s a complex business politics whether you are a Conservative/Labour or Liberal politician you are still dishing out Western Industrialist Capitalism (in our world anyways).
At the end of the day the difference between the parties is more a matter of what people aspire to (for some reason). The policies that are put in place by the parties (as opposed to the rhetoric we are told prior to an election) look and become very similiar.
Still we do like to take sides before we head to that polling booth and vote for not the Conservatives/Labour or Liberals but Western Industrialist Capitalism.
There is only ever one ideology.
I’m adding for the record – “There is only ever one ideology” —there is of course more than one ideology floating around this planet of ours but governments usually form just the one at a time, like it or lump it.
To be fair to the two subjects in this post I attempted to acquire two pictures of the men in question looking straight at camera. This was the best I could do. A fair job…
