The Shadow Minister for the Environment was a high profile activist against US bases and nuclear energy and weapons. As a member of the Labor party those views are no longer allowed.
This sound piece contrasts his view over time set to Midnight Oil music. Hear the former head of the Nuclear Disarmament Party’s voice crack as he avoids reporter’s questions. Hear him do a 180 degree turn on US bases over his eighties hit, ‘Short memory’. Weep as you realise the incredible power of the lyrics which he can no longer sing.
Listen to a great man turn into a worm.
