I can't think of a more fitting state-of-the-nation address for the UK in 2012 than this.
Here, one of the biggest icons of the 60s, and all the forward-thinking, anti-authoritarian social progress that decade brought with it, performs badly for the benefit of an unelected monarch and a swathe of braying idiots draped in their national flag and false bonhomie, in a costly and overlong charade paid for (but not asked for) by the public. Meanwhile, thanks to the "work force" initiatives of an "old-boy" governments, people with no jobs are bussed in to act as stewards at this event, on threat of losing their unemployment benefit, and without even the most basic needs of food, shelter and sanitation looked after.
The name of the song? LIVE AND LET DIE.
This makes me feel fucking sick.
