Radiohead Frontman: "We must throw Tony
Blair out of office NOW"
Releases video in protest of political climate in UK
Thom Yorke, the lead singer with group Radiohead has demanded that Tony Blair be removed from office immediately and that the people of the UK be the ones to do it.
Yorke has just released a solo album entitled 'The Eraser' much of which encapsulates the uncertainty and climate of fear that the government has enforced upon this country.
In a public post on the band's website Yorke stressed in his own inimitable way:
ive had enough of this
our government sitting on the fence with the US
while world war 3 appears
to be breaking out in Lebanon and Northern Israel.
we must throw Tony Blair our of office NOW.
he does not represent the views of the british people.
he does not represent the views of his foreign office and officials.
he does not even represent the views of those in his cabinet.
he cares far too much about his relationship with Bush, and Murdoch.
this man is not fit to be our prime minister.
its a nice sunny day. come on lets do it. you know it makes sense.
a vote of no confidence. or something. anything..
Clearly Yorke has taken note of the fact that whilst WWIII is brewing Tony Blair has been living it up in San Francisco, doing business deals with elite figures and most likely visiting the Bohemian Grove.
Yorke is the latest icon in the music industry to speak out. Earlier this year Neil Young released his anti-war protest album 'Living with war' which took direct swipes at Bush and the Neocons in the Whitehouse.
The first single from Yorke's album is entitled 'Harrowdown Hill'. The song is about the mystery surrounding the death of former weapons inspector Dr David Kelly and the shockwave of aftermath since the invasion of Iraq in 2003.
The line "Did I fall or was I pushed, and where's the blood?", entertains the evidence that suggests Dr David Kelly did not commit suicide but was murdered by elements within our own government in order to cover up the fact that evidence supporting WMDs in Iraq was falsified.
It is thought that Dr David Kelly was about to go public with this evidence but then he was mysteriously found dead in the woods near Harrowdown Hill, a phrase he had himself used to describe what may happen to him should things turn out badly.
The video features much police state activity and clearly highlights Yorke's discomfort with the current political climate in the UK .
Yorke has also submitted a track, 'Black Swan', from 'The Eraser' , to appear during the end credits of Richard linklater's 'A Scanner Darkly'. The film is an adaption of Philip K Dick's novel of the same name and depicts a near future America that has lost the war on drugs and capitulated into the tentacles of a pervasive control grid.
Art forms such as 'The Eraser' and 'A Scanner Darkly' represent the latest example of a refreshing and burgeoning trend in that seeks to enlighten the listener/viewer into recognizing the real world prison barriers being erected around society today.
Yorke has previously spoken out and attended marches over the the use of UK army stations by the US for advanced missile defense and by the NSA for eavesdropping. He is vehemently against the planned weaponization of space by the Neocons in office, commonly referred to as 'star wars' or 'son of star wars'.
