Have just been watching Amy Winehouse murdering 'Free Nelson Mandela' at his birthday concert in Hyde Park. She sounded like someone deliberately trying to sing badly to amuse her drunken friends at a karaoke night. Obviously she is a celebrity and all that, but as far as I know she hasn't a political bone in her body and wouldn't have remembered anything of the original campaign. By contrast, I actually found Eddy Grant's performance of 'Give me Hope Johanna' quite moving. It meant something to him.
I was going to go off on one about why they couldn't have just given Stan, who sang it originally with The Special AKA, another 15 minutes of fame. Thankfully I decided to Google him first, and found out exactly why. Oh dear.
I'm told Gordon was very good when he was being interviewed, but I missed that bit.
