There’s been a general election in Britain since Sleaford Mods‘ last album ‘Divide & Exit‘ was released to an unsuspecting public in 2014.
The result in itself was shocking enough as the voting public returned a right wing majority government to Parliament for the first time in more than twenty years, but even more insidious was the rise to acceptance of the proto-Nationalist group UKIP who, despite their monotheistic approach to policy and barely disguised racism, won almost four million votes.
