Best Foot Forward in the New Year with a contemporary Internationale!

Keen-sighted readers of our site will have noticed that a number of recent posts have appeared under the  name of indefenceyw rather than that of the usual Tony Taylor. This change has been prompted by concerns that the site reflects too much my political outlook. Hence, as from now, contributions that I feel step outside of an IDYW consensus will appear under my own name. All other posts will be the work of indefenceyw. Obviously the best way of counteracting any bias in the site’s perspective is to send in your own criticisms and commentary, the receipt of which would be deeply appreciated.

A few folk know that in a past life I was a singularly obsessed race walker. Indeed I competed in my first race at the tender age of six, looking very much like the likely lad on the left! Thus I hope you will forgive my use of the old rallying call to put our best foot forward as we face the challenge of continuing to defend youth work in the coming year.

And, as musical inspiration, what do you reckon to this ‘a capella’ reworking of the Internationale by the Invisibles?
