The long haul

I first encountered Chumbawamba when I was in my late teens, in Leeds, in 1984.  I thought it was our mission to abolish the state and bring about a new society.  I thought this was going to happen within the next few months.

I am now a member of Commoners Choir, run by Boff Whalley, from Chumbawamba.  Thirty-one years later, I still believe that it is our mission bring about a new society, but I am not promising you anything about when it will happen.

We need it to happen, more than ever.  And how long it takes depends partly on you.
