Saturday Sound: Robb Johnson & The Irregulars

On Question Time last week, broadcast from Plymouth, an elderly local man speaking from the audience contrasted the austerity policies of the current government with those of Attlee's Labour, elected shortly after the end of World War II in Europe in July 1945:
After [the War] this country was broke. That was austerity. What happened?
Labour gave us the National Health. They gave us houses. They gave us full employment. They gave us that.
Now the Tories are taking it away!
Robb Johnson is one of the finest radical singer-songwriters currently performing. Here he is with his band the Irregulars, celebrating the post-War spirit that man in Plymouth referred to.
