#Fail to the ThiefPosted on December 12, 2011
So Thom Yorke of Radiohead appeared at Occupy London last night to play a gig in support of their aims.
Whilst most of what Occupy stands for is so vague it’s almost impossible to pin down – even when they try to do so themselves – it is perfectly clear they claim to be for the poorer “99%” and against the rich “1%”. In their world the 1% are responsible for all ills, their wealth should be redistributed and they are fundamentally immoral by simple virtue of their wealth.
But which group does Thom Yorke fall into? With over 30 million record sales worldwide, it’s hard to see how he is part of the 99%…
Or do their principles of class war not apply when it’s someone left wing who’s been raking in the cash?
