Episode 7: General Election Special

The show was pre-recorded as the British General Election results came out on Thursday. So the first hour is anti-Tory reggae and punk classics, mostly from the heyday of political punk, otherwise known as The Thatcher Years. The plan was a full two hours, but then technological gremlinism (the internet died) meant a sudden change of plan and a much more mellow, improvised, second half.
