Pick of the Political Pops: Pete Seeger “We Shall Overcome”

This is for anyone who’s suffered over the last nine years, can barely contain the pain and grief of last night and is in fear of what the next five have in store. In all seriousness, if you’re at the end of your tether and you need someone to talk to, remember you can call Samaritans on 116 123. Remember too that nothing changes – we are still here for one another, and one day we’ll beat the fuckers. As Tony Benn said: “There’s no final victory. And there’s no final defeat.”

  1. Tony Benn was a legendary politician let’s not mention him in the same breath as Corbine – fortunately this will prove to be a final defeat for Corbine. Let’s just hope Dianne Abbot puts her name forward for the leadership !
