I was somewhat troubled by the male primary school teacher on BBC Question Time this week who, in the course of defending Brexit voters like himself from accusations of racism, complained about the problem he has with the different languages spoken at his school. If that wasn’t disturbing enough, he went on to implicitly link that situation with the difficulties people have when trying to get...

I signed this letter along with 120+ other musicians calling upon President Obama to end the attacks on peaceful demonstrators defending the Standing Rock Reservation from exploitation by the oil industry. Big Up to Kate Nash for pulling the thing together.

You could say the Daily Mail has no sense of irony, but we already know that. I just think this is plain insensitive. The beloved comedian Andreas Siegfried 'Andrew' Sachs was a German Jewish immigrant who fled to Britain to escape the Nazis.

Clash - the mag, not the band - meets Billy Bragg uptown

Train Kept A-Rollin' - Clash Meets Billy Bragg

No editorials in the Mail, Express or Sun this morning demanding to know who radicalised the far-right terrorist who murdered Jo Cox. I wonder why?
Looking forward to performing at the Dick Gaughan benefit concert in Edinburgh on Sunday. Still some tickets left if you'd like to come along and support one of the great political artists.

As anyone who has come to the recent 'Shine A Light' dates will know, the album was inspired by a book I've been writing for the past couple of years. 'Roots, Radicals & Rockers' looks at how skiffle transformed British pop music from being jazz-based to guitar-led and will be published by Faber Social in June next year.

Here's a new song from Joe and me, a festive Merle Haggard cover recorded at Levon Helm's barn in Woodstock when we played there earlier this year.

Some thoughts on Trump, Corbyn, Taylor Swift and who should be the next James Bond

Billy Bragg on Jeremy Corbyn: "He's between a rock and a hard place."

Joe Henry and me were at Stocken Prison, near Grantham, in Rutland this afternoon, playing a few songs while delivering half a dozen guitars to the recovery unit there as part of the Jail Guitar Doors initiative. The instruments will be utilised by substance misuse officers at Stocken, who have designed a pathway programme to encourage prisoners to detox from drugs, learn how to stay off and...

Been disappointed by the number of posts I've read here in the past few days that have sought to promote the narrative that liberals/leftists/feminists/the 'PC Brigade' etc are to blame for the election of Donald Trump.

"X made me do it" is nothing more than the excuse of someone who knows they have done something wrong but is looking to shift the blame onto the victim. It's the classic...

Everyone to blame for twats like Trump ‘except the people who vote for them’

I apologise to my American friends for once again making the comparison between Brexit and the election of Donald Trump, but this footage reminded me of another facet that both events have in common.

Although they won the referendum, the people who voted to leave the EU were not happy with their victory. Rather than celebrating, they reacted to the result with anger, offering nothing but...
