It's Street War (and certainly not Class War)
Tories talking about rap. Sorry posh Eton-educated Tories talking about rap. With all the social resonance of a nun talking about smack.
Call me Dave 'Looking almost as old as Ming' Cameron has spoken up about gun and knife crime. Social deprivation? Lack of social inclusion? Desperation? Exasperation? Class struggle? No f*cking way, Dawg:
"I would say to Radio 1, do you realise that some of the stuff you play on Saturday nights encourages people to carry guns and knives?"
This criticism was levelled particularly at White Men Can Jump, faux Brixton accented, 49 year-old Radio 1 Hip Hop DJ, Tim Westwood. In that case I would like to level the same accusation at Virgin Radio for ilicitting the exact same reaction when they play anything by Coldplay or Queen.
Maybe I just don't hang out with the same homies as Dave. Step to Dave.
