Hah! Great minds think alike and all that Tim - I was planning on posting the exact same video!

Ah well, back to the drawing board for me.....

Do it, Cath. In these sad times, serendipity transcends such banal concepts as plagiarism.

The message and attitude aside - are you keen on it musically too? (Can't get into it myself.)

I think the Redskins were interesting because of all the soul-influenced white UK acts of the 1980s, they were the only ones that didn't feel the need to sand off their rough edges (cf Style Council, Simply Red, Blow Monkeys, etc) even when they were on a major label (think this was their first single on a major). Add to that their in-yer-face Trotskyism and they were an unusual beast, to say the least.
