    Bonus points for track title and band lol:

    “Have you ever thought about your soul can it be saved?
    Or perhaps you think that when you’re dead you just stay in your grave
    Is God just a thought within your head or is he a part of you?
    Is Christ just a name that you read in a book when you were in school?
    When you think about death do you lose your breath or do you keep your cool?
    Would you like to see the Pope on the end of a rope do you think he’s a fool?
    Well I have seen the truth, yes I’ve seen the light and I’ve changed my ways
    And I’ll be prepared when you’re lonely and scared at the end of our days
    Could it be you’re afraid of what your friends might say
    If they knew you believe in God above?
    They should realize before they criticize
    That God is the only way to love
    Is your mind so small that you have to fall
    In with the pack wherever they run
    Will you still sneer when death is near
    And say they may as well worship the sun?
    I think it was true it was people like you that crucified Christ
    I think it is sad the opinion you had was the only one voiced
    Will you be so sure when your day is near, say you don’t believe?
    You had the chance but you turned it down, now you can’t retrieve
    Perhaps you’ll think before you say that God is dead and gone
    Open your eyes, just realize that he’s the one
    The only one who can save you now from all this sin and hate
    Or will you still jeer at all you hear, yes I think it’s too late”

    It’s campaigning for the eradication of systematic and institutional racism which would certainly decrease racial tensions in the long-term, Kris.

    Leicester – Brighton looks awfully draw-y to me. I hope West Ham lose again!

    At least eradicating the clap should take some pressure of off the health service!

    Modern day forms of socialism: Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Canada, Sweden, Ireland, Norway, New Zealand, Belgium…

    Historical: Paris 1872 (first revolution), Hungarian commune, Germany 1919. Some even say Maoist China.

    Capitalism merely encourages the worst of human nature: greed, envy, narcissism, discrimination, untrustworthiness…

    We are poles apart, Paul, on most of the important issues including Brexit!

    Are the people coming out to applaud after 8 weeks, whilst ostensibly doing so for NHS/key workers, actually motivated more by keeping up appearances in front of the neighbours? Does doing so even contain an element of narcissism? And does it not convey at least tacit support for the government?

    It beggars belief that, with all due respect, you trusted your vote to a party you knew had a highly flawed leader, a buffoon in fact, even if out of fear of what Labour would do.

    By the way, I’m not a fan of any political party (being way to the left of any) but Corbyn’s Labour offered a socialist vision that was the best I was going to get under our system.

    You make some interesting points, Paul, but all the proud Tory voters from last December were electing a party whose MP’s, for example, clapped, cheered, laughed and waved their order papers when defeating Labour’s attempt to force the government to lift the pay cap on public sector workers in 2017. So you can’t say you didn’t know what you were voting for five months ago. To have done so and then come out to applaud key workers can only be regarded as hypocritical unless you are politically naive.

    Initially, perhaps, the applause was more a letting off of steam during lockdown – it’s not as if the vast majority of key workers could actually hear it (unless it was filmed).

    As it’s gone on it has become (endorsed by pots and pans and fireworks (any excuse)) more a ritual and I have a deep suspicion that people taking part are doing so because not to may cost them some kind of social status with their neighbours, it’s largely become all about keeping up appearances.

    Throughout, I have taken a similar approach to Drone. And I have never been out to clap because, living in a conservative village, I do not want to associate myself with folk who not many months ago returned to government a party that had seriously underfunded the NHS for years whilst effectively reducing the wages of most of its employees. Such people, who are clappers, are also hypocrites.

    “Hope all the Millwall “Treatment” Lads from the 80’s kept their stuff”

    The surgical masks were handed out and worn for a joke in one specific away game in that 70s stich-up TV documentary, Nathan.

    Did you mean knees up for the pervs, Gamble? I once met Jonathan King – seemed like a decent bloke to me. Goes to show you never can tell!
