All over the UK a legion of Kate Bush fans are sighing with relief after the iconic singer released a statement stating that she is not a Tory. (we still loved here whatever – John Robb review of her album here)
The whole situation started a couple of years ago when she said…
“We have a female prime minister here in the UK. I actually really like her and think she’s wonderful. I think it’s the best thing that’s happened to us in a long time,” Bush told Maclean’s in 2016. “She’s a very intelligent woman but I don’t see much to fear. I will say it is great to have a woman in charge of the country. She’s very sensible and I think that’s a good thing at this point in time.”
It was probably more that she was trying to say she liked having a woman prime minister but in the internet age any comment is there to take a totally black and white stance ion leading to digital whispers that she was a Tory which she has countered with the statement today.
