"This song is a favourite for me to sing unaccompanied, and this is the first time I have recorded it as such. The first part of the title refers to the failed revolutions of 1848, which I studied as a History student; the second part is a play on Sunset Boulevard and Violet Beauregard. It's about The Tories. I didn't consciously set out to write a political song, but the way mainstream politics was moving to The Right in the late 2000s clearly "inspired" me to write it. Every time something bad happens politically in this country (alas, now pretty frequent), I use this song as a vessel to channel my anger and frustration."
