I've just been reading a piece in the Guardian entitled Space tourism: to infinity and beyond?. It's about the soon-to-be-launched service from Richard Branson's Virgin company which will offer those who can afford it (£125K for the round trip) a jaunt into space. It made me think of my song Travelling People. I don't know what's right and wrong here. But it's a rum do. The 99% of the Occupy movement might have a view on such parading of wealth at this particular moment in history. Should we travel where we can just because we can?
