Britpop/Brexit

IMG_8152

Jon Savage raises the interesting idea that the Britpop moment was related causally to this catastrophic Brexit thing we’re needlessly going through.

It did somehow contribute to the re-continuation, re-construction of a type of English identity. The Blair worked for me up until Iraq. Then I voted Green.

Now, any form of sentimental nationalism which I may have once indulged in – like eating nostalgically from an over-rich box of Christmas chocolate liqueurs – just makes me want to VOM.

I tried listening to Vaughan Williams ‘Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis’ a few months back & I just could stomach it. UKIP have ruined such previous apparently harmless rural Edwardian fantasies.

Sleaford Mods as Savage points out in his article. Just that.
