I was twenty-one years when I wrote this song

It’s scary, but I almost agree with David Blunkett. He’s calling for a reclaiming of pride in being English, a celebration of identity that takes nationalism away from the racists. I was thinking much the same thing yesterday whilst walking through the market they’d set up for St. Patrick’s day. (Strictly speaking, by birth at least, I’m Welsh, so what I really want to do is reclaim the Union Jack from the racists.)
