Anyone else think this now sounds pretty eerie?
I wasn't even born in 1981 yet considering the background to the song - Tory Government, riots in London/the UK
30 years later, we have a (practically) Tory Govt. and riots in London and the UK.

Still sounds relevant.

Aye, I've heard tales from a Scouse chum (not Annie, in case you wondered) that there's riots in Nottingham, Birmingham and Liverpool. (And if Caz is to believed, the police are trying to unsuccessfully to block off Blackberrys internet connection.)

It is indeed relevant, as even 23 months of the Conservatives taking control after the Wilson/Callaghan years was too short to treat the rot that had set in.
