James frontman TIM BOOTH has attacked the British Prime Minister for using his band's anthem SIT DOWN as his introduction song at the recent Labour Party Conference.
The hit was blasted out of speakers at Manchester Central before Gordon Brown made his keynote speech on Tuesday (23Sep08), and Booth was far from impressed.
He tells Britain's The Independent newspaper, "We have always been supportive of the Labour Party, as well as Greenpeace, Amnesty and CND, but obviously the machinations of a desperate politician trying to restore unity by using our song is not something we are totally behind."
Booth fears Brown missed the point of the song: "(It's) about unity of people and spirit rather than healing the divisions of political parties."
