MIND WHAT YOU WRITE, COMRADE

By Pete Moore On September 18th, 2020

Northern Ireland’s health minister has described three new songs by Sir Van Morrison that protest against coronavirus lockdowns as “dangerous”.

Hmmm

Whatever the lyrics of the songs, politicians reminding artists to watch what they do is infinitely more dangerous. We don’t want to live in that kind of world. Back into your box sunshine.

  1. Well done to Van the Man, and the minister should keep his views to himself. It’s not appropriate for him to comment on this.

  2. Why should Van be allowed to voice his views on this while the Miniter shouldn’t?

    I have to say that this is a welcome turn around for ATW, though. Entertainers are are normally ridiculed for expressing political views here.
