"Dick Gaughan otoh is about as far left as you can be. The only times it gets on my nerves is when he force feeds his politics. siad Le Scaramouche.

That's about it: Peter Bellamy's politics are unknown (to me at least) and certainly don't come across in the songs he chose to sing. I can take Dick Gaughan only as far as his politics don't get in the way of his music. Ditto Leon Rosselson, Ewan McColl, everybody else. I can take Peter Bellamy all the time.

Politics gets in the way of music.
