SOAP BOX BOYS

The new Pet Shop Boys album isn't very fond of Tony Blair, actually:

But a spokesman for them said: "The Pet Shop Boys think we should try to increase our freedom, not limit it - they don't believe ID cards are an effective way of countering terrorism.

"Some tracks are about the climate of fear being exploited so people can push through ID cards."

They also blast Blair's relationship with President George Bush on a song called I'm With Stupid.


When even Neil Tennant puts the songs about shopping and young italian boys on mopeds to one side, you know the nation's in trouble.
