Regrets, I’ve had a few…
Posted on January 2, 2012
….and having now seen this piece of unmitigated misogynist shite – Fake Bitch Anthem – one of my biggest regrets is for ever endorsing the wanker concerned on Comment is free: The Andrew Lansley Rap perfectly skewers its target.
Truth be told I regretted that piece within days. Not because I didn’t agree with the message in the rap, but because I didn’t know at the time of writing that UNISON was behind the video. And even after my CiF piece had been published, no one from UNISON had the decency to tell me they’d funded the whole thing, which considering I’m a UNISON activist as well as a writer, left me (I felt) looking like a bit of a UNISON stooge. And that’s not a position I’m very comfortable with. At all.
So there you go: I’ve (finally) said my piece. All that’s left is to hope that someone from UNISON will now issue a statement disassociating the union from MC NxtGen and his vile misogyny…..
