From Red Wedge to Blue Rinse
The Tories are playing "Shout to the top" by the Style Council as intermission music at their conference after Theresa May's speech.
My memory is that the Style Council were prominent in Red Wedge, the pro-Labour campaign by various leftist pop stars in the run-up to the 1987 General Election. Is Paul Weller aware that his music is being appropriated to gee-up drowsy Tory conference delegates?
By playing '80s leftie pop after their DWP Spokesperson spoke, are the Tories trying to remind us of their awful record on youth unemployment last time they were in power?
