PARLIAMENT has agreed they would not have silenced anti-Brexit campaigner Steve Bray if he had mixed it up occasionally with a dubstep set.
Following the police seizure of Bray’s sound system yesterday, MPs have admitted his pro-European protest would not have been shut down if he had dropped in a few Skrillex tracks or a bit of Katy B.
Andrea Leadsom, member for South Northamptonshire, said: “There’s nothing worse than DJs dedicated to ‘educating the crowd’ with inaccessible material. Read the room.
“If Bray had played more cuts and breaks, done a bit of scratching, worked us up with the Chrispy remix of Rude Boy and then, when he’d got hands in the air, hit us with his anti-Brexit stuff, he’d have got more of a reception.
“But instead of a bit of dubstep, a touch of reggaeton, a swerve into funky house and maybe even some electro, he was just Brexit Brexit Brexit all day long. No wonder he lost us.
“Look at Diplo. You can’t pin him down musically and he’s holding down a residency in Vegas. Bray simply isn’t on his level. He’s never even played Fabric.
“Nobody’s questioning his passion but we weren’t with him on his soundscape journey. The vibe was dead. We’ve booked Four Tet for the next party conference instead.”
