    "A song about a former Labour MP has been topping the Amazon download charts ahead of Lady Gaga, Kylie Minogue and Bruce Springsteen."

    It's this one.



    It's not a song I would personally rush out to buy, but I'd be interested to learn what the appeal is from someone who did.

    The charts are pretty meaningless these days.

    It was a big thing in the 60s, 70s and 80s but today nobody cares who' s number 1.

    Whatever the value of the charts these days, that this is top gives me hope.

    I always like Dennis Skinner. I don't agree with his politics but always felt he was a man of passion and integrity. He stood up for what he believed and Parliament is a poorer and less colourful place without him.

    "Have you got Helen Mirren on standby?"

    I like the lines:
    “This one can’t be bought, this one can’t be had...”
    One might hope that this could be said of all MPs, however I rather doubt it.

    I read palms too, for very reasonable rates. :)

    It's lottery numbers or nothing.

    I grew up in Bolsover ... love it - apart from the pronunciation - it's Boser.
