INDIEROCK DECLARES WAR ON HOWARD. SORT OF: No sooner had Michael Howard got up and said "Drug addled pop stars? Not on my watch" than a former drug-addled pop star stood up and ripped into him. We're not entirely sure that Brett Anderson batting out at Tory immigration policy is going to swing many seats come polling day, but it makes a change from having to rely on Damon Albarn for our political commentary. Brett said:

"There's a lot of scare-mongering right-wing politicians that will tell you that your country is being destabilised by refugees, just to win a few votes in middle England.

"It's a load of old bollocks, immigration is essential to living in a healthy, diverse, multi-cultural, 21st century society and Britain wouldn't have anything like the depth of cultural wealth it has without immigration."
