I can still picture Billy Bragg standing on that stage, giving it full-throated fire and moral defiance. You probably know the lyrics (by Leon Rosselson). “In 1649, to St George’s Hill, a ragged band they called the Diggers came to show the people’s will. They defied the landlords. They defied the laws. They were the dispossessed reclaiming what was theirs.”
