F**k Off Back To Eton – The David Cameron ‘busker’ affair

robin vs cameron

Oh golly gosh, I was up in Northumberland to see my Nana for a peaceful break after the ‘Three Acres And A Cow‘ spring tour, when a nasty big blue bus cut me up on my bike… and then I had a little unplanned chance to sing to David Cameron… Quite an unexpected bit of serendipity perhaps?

This interview is a good place to start if you want to know my thoughts – http://www.independent.co.uk/news/people/david-camerons-ukulele-busker-i-thought-f-off-back-to-eton-was-a-bit-crass-but-it-came-from-the-heart-10177329.html

Due to popular demand I have begun a campaign to get ‘F**k off back to Eton’ to number 1 during the general election – subscribe here to be kept in the loop with updates – http://eepurl.com/bjZrGr

On 5th April at Ye Olde Rose and Crown Theatre Pub in Walthamstow, I am putting on a show called ‘I’ll Be Good To The Land; A History Of Land Rights And Protest In Folk Song And Story’ as part of the Community Food Growers Network spring events series.

I will be joined on the evening by many friends and a special guest called Hugh Lupton as we unpick the people’s history of this fair isle.

Hugh is one of the most brilliant and widely respected story tellers in the country. You can catch a sneaky peak of him below on youtube.
