Little boys throwing stones

Listening to the track, Leaders of the Free World, by Elbow on my iPhone today I was struck by how politically relevant it is during this push and shove election campaign. It’s a wicked tune so worth checking out anyway, but note the insightful lyrics:

The leaders of the free world are just little boys throwing stones
And it’s easy to ignore till they’re knocking on the door of you homes.

One only needs to think back to the election debates to see the echoes of truth…

Largely because I just want the whole damn system reformed, it is my intent to vote Lib Dem. Let’s have some drastic change. Kick out the arrogant, complacent parties of the past. Vote Nick Clegg.

Anyway, politics aside – enjoy listening to Elbow!
