RantBox (it’s Foxie’s and it’s always slightly different but it just looks & sounds the same, ok ….. it is the same…these are my own views and not necessarily those of the band although they voted me leader to tell them what to do according to Gel, so you may remain mystified by it all……………..) So, you can read what we’re up to in the Newsbox without ever having to listen to my missives ever again to get the Bleeding News. Jolly Good. Election fever rules supreme with Theresa (does my ego look big in these very expensive trousers) May’s snap election hoping to cash in on an undeserved poll lead thanks to media bias against Corbyn. Well then, who’d have thought that with that kind of Tory lead that Corbyn would start to close the gap, and the Tories would make a number of policy gaffs. Me. That’s who. Corbyn has won 2 elections to be Labour leader against the odds and against a hostile media and sometimes the undermining Blairite wing of his own party, some of whom still fail to realise the world has moved on. He has been massively underestimated and I hope he comes through to give the Tories a bloody nose. The Labour manifesto is what many of us socialists have been crying out for over the last 30 years. Finally, we get there and it is indeed one “for the many not the few”. On the other hand, the Tory manifesto shows their contempt for everyone, now even the elderly, showing their arrogance and dirth of ideas by thinking all they have to do on June 8th is turn up and slag off Corbyn to have a landslide. A landslide the country will regret giving her if it happens. They (she) still think cuts will carry them and the country through as will tax breaks for the rich. Since 2011 they have given away Ł20billion a year in tax handouts to corporations and the wealthy - money that our services badly need, including the NHS. Now they have tossed away the triple lock, and introduced a dementia tax which will rob ordinary people of their own homes because of an illness lottery which is frankly a disgrace. Nice work Theresa. The Tories simply don’t understand the difference between investment and putting money in at the bottom of the economy, which will be spent by the many, and so increase tax revenues so reducing the deficit and paying off the debt – versus cuts and giving handouts to the rich which means they’ll just squirrel it away in some tax haven not spending it, driving down wages and demand here. But then they don’t care do they, so long as they protect their rich mates. Be warned. So yes Theresa May, let’s make this about you. You have a bloody awful record with everything you’ve touched but which the media has a total blindspot about. If you do win, and when it all goes inevitably wrong as it will because you have no ambition but your own, and absolutely no original ideas but supporting the rich, the Tory Party will ditch you and I predict that will happen in 3 years. For the rest of us we’ll still be left with a Tory Government when that happens. Arghhhhh. That in a nutshell is why elections should be about policy and not personalities because people come and go, but like Labour’s great idea of 1945, the NHS, it’s is still here and we have until June 8th to save it from Tory lies and spin and self-interest. Brexit has nothing to do with this election despite what May says. This is about the longer term future not a debate that’s already been had and which we need to ensure does not now cost thousands of British jobs. It’s all about Theresa May’s rather fragile ego and I for one hope we can shatter that into a million pieces, one piece for every person who has to use a foodbank in the 5th richest country in the world. Cheers, Foxie
NewsBox For those of you visiting this page for the first time, here is a jargon buster: 'Hearts Attack' means gigs 'Hearts Propaganda' means biog 'Hearts Noize' means music 'Hearts Pix n Mix' means photo/video Hearts Doshswap' means merchandise The rest are hopefully self-explanatory (-: Gigs Gigs are being worked on and slowly coming in, so watch the GigBox, not GoggleBox, but the GigBox, or better still visit “Hearts Attack” which will tell you everything you need to know, apart from the meaning of life or what’s for tea ‘cus it’s all just a play on words innit. 2017 Plans Now that we’ve a few 2017 gigs under our belt, we’ve started turning our attention to the album and working on new material. Yipee. The plan, yes the plan, is to start recording later in 2017 with a planned early 2018 release. Given everything that has happened since June 2016 and the political clusterf**k that is continuing and in recognition of ‘the 3 wise monkeys’ attitude of the Brexiteers, it seems appropriate that this album is a sign of the times. So, “Patriots & Partisans” it is. Website Yup, it’s changed a bit. In a kind of evolutionary way, not a revolutionary one. Revolution’s cost money and take a lot of planning in case you hadn’t guessed but we live in hope…………………….see you somewhere in 2017. Peace & Love with the occasional necessary disturbance to keep things fresh. All the best, Foxie, Gel, Ewan, Stuart
