Leon is the Ken Loach of music. Nobody else puts their finger on the political pulse of how the actions of politicians and the wealthy impact on the poor in anywhere near a degree of effectiveness as Leon. With a rare mixture of humour, pathos and social comment he is constant in his championing of the needy.
Leon is now in his 80s, still gigging every now and again, and is an inspiration to anyone who wants social justice! Nobody comes close!
Why aren’t there others? In this time of desperate need why are there not young people protesting about the gross inequality?? Why aren’t people up in arms at the enforced austerity? Why aren’t they screaming about the greedy bankers and executives who are creaming off the top while the poor suffer!! Why???
As for the looters – well – what’s revered for the rich is damned for the poor!!
According to Leon it’s because they’ve got their football and Strictly Come Dancing and can’t be bothered!!
This album has some brilliant thought-provoking stuff.
Everyone should buy it and start putting up barricades.
