Keith, there may be people wanting to 'have a pop'.

But I expressed an opinion which, I have learned since, Peggy Seeger would probably have agreed with, on the quality of a particular singer. I was subjected to a tirade of abuse as a result. I pointed out that a lot of material produced on that singer was framed within a specific ideological perspective and got called all sorts of names. Yet Jim himself is on record as saying he doesn't think he and his associates would deny having been political. My intention was not to 'have a pop'.

Sorry if this isn't very helpful, but it's the way I see it.
