I got this in the post from Billy Bragg yesterday.
Do you feel like you are the only person in the country who is dreading the festival of fawning and flag waving that will accompany the golden jubilee celebrations this summer? Fear not. You are not alone.
Billy Bragg proposes knavish trickery for this years golden jubilee.
Billy is attempting to get - against all the odds - the UK's number one single during the golden jubliee week at the start of June. His song, Take Down The Union Jack is the music industry's only dissenting contribution to the royal event, which will otherwise see Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Elton John, together with Pop Idol Will young and S Club 7, performing a pop concert at Buckingham Palace.
Do you want to take part in this michevious knavery? Well this is your chance.
Register your protest and buy Take Down The Union Jack.
The single is released on Monday 20th May and they reckon they need to sell 20,000 copies to make it to number one. I'll be off to my local record store first thing on Monday and I invite everyone in the UK to join me
