If They Had Won

from If They Had Won by Steve Lawson



Sat down to play last night, thinking about the election. It's been a pretty extraordinary few days, mostly because people expected so little from this, and we've actually ended up with... hope? At least some light on the horizon.

Anyway, I started playing and what actually came out was a darker meditation on what we're hoping to avert. As it is, the Tories with all their austerity measures, draconian nonsense and brutal treatment of asylum seekers and the poor are still, just, in power. If they HAD got the majority they were hoping for, we'd be looking at an awful lot more preventable deaths due to terrible policy over the next few years.

So here's a soundtrack to that foreboding, and by omission the sounding of a bell of hope that this is currently an unlikely dystopian destination, and we're heading towards that light on the horizon...
