Poet/playwrite/author/musician/political activist, just wondering if anyone here has heard of him, i first came across him when i was about 10 in school and have in recently rediscovered him.
He rejected an OBE (officer of the order of the British Empire), which is one of the highest formal recognitions from the country you can get, on the grounds of it's historical links to the British empire. He tours performing his poetry and songs live

Here's a video of him performing his poem "money":



Anyone heard of him/like him?
