I've just been listening to her online. Very passionate and stirring. Jeremy Corbyn goes there and really does get treated like the new messiah (I was already a believer). To quote someone on FB (son) "Genuinely can't remember a politician that could have done this in my entire lifetime. Amazing."

There is a great deal of social unrest in the country which came to a head with the Glenfell Tower fire. A tragedy of historic proportions and yet it all seems to come down to the fact the cladding had not been thoroughly tested for fire resistance. And sprinkler systems weren't in place. Would they have saved those people though, given it was the outside of the building that went up. I don't think it can all be laid at Theresa May's door - to be honest I am starting to feel a teeny bit sorry for her, she looks haunted ... and hunted. Now at least she will know how the fox feels.

I loved her storytelling; describing each characters experience as they sit or lie awake in their flats at 4:18 in the morning & how those lives become interwoven as they break free into the streets. It's the glorious joyousness & fury & fantastic articulation with which she describes the way it is today for some people. Oh, to be so eloquent! The musical bits aren't really my thing but it didn't matter. She reminded me a little of Janis Joplin; only to look at & the way she moved. She won the Ted Hughes award in 2013. I'm starting to read her. A good girl:)
There's a danger i think in edifying Corbyn too much, it makes me wary, but I don't think he'd want that either. I think he's got where he has by simply being honest & true to his beliefs; being steadfast & decisive; by being intelligent, articulate & compassionate. For some bizarre reason these characteristics seem to be those that will render him a weak, ineffectual leader according to some. I think a lot of people, especially the young see through this bullshit now.
If I thought that May & her ilk could learn lessons from how it feels to be hunted I'd perhaps have a modicum of sympathy but I doubt they will. Buying up the DUP & risking all that that entails proves this to me. They most likely believe that they are saving the country from the horrors of a Corbyn government as they see it or are they just desperate to maintain their own interests at any cost. Of course she's got to try & save face having orchestrated this fiasco; but why not be the better person & show some humility. Even the bloody Queen had to climb down on the Diana furore; not that I give a shit. I'm aware that at times I'm as bitter & twisted as they are. Ain't healthy. It's all about love...as per. I must remember :)
And no, of course it can't all be laid at one woman's door but I don't care i want them out. So many deaths recently, so much suffering in so many different ways for so many different reasons..all over the world. HumanKIND:)
Keep well tjj.

You're right. Watched it last night. She stole the show. That's not to say that the bar was set very high in the first place, mind - what with Ed Sheeran and the Foo Fighters headlining - but after watching it I'd go and see her now. Always liked the records, but rap doesn't always translate well live.
