  1. Strange commentary to be making given that Labour were in government at the time this was released in May 1978. Thatcher didn’t become PM until May `79.
    A lot of people hated Labour for what they did to Britain in the 70’s, and Robinson was just one of them.

      1. Who ever wrote a song about a Shadow Govt.?
        It’s also a most myopic take to automatically exploit and confuse subjective reference to what “Right” refers to, considering that when Thatcher formed her govt. – having won a general election in the midst of the post-Punk fall-out, some members were homosexual, which bombs that anti-gay nonsense.
        Your memory of the state of affairs in 70’s Britain under Labour is shot.
        Did you seriously think that these gangs of gay-bashing skinheads were Tory voters?
        I very much doubt and it’s patently obvious actually considering his input into social reforms that Robinson hadn’t much of a clue about Keith Joseph.
        As for Whitehouse, she was just a working class mouthpiece for the puritanical.
        I’ve no idea who Reed was (he wasn’t a shadow cabinet member).
