Why are we so surprised that Kate Bush likes Theresa May?
A wealthy woman in her late fifties approves of Theresa May.
It is hardly a shock, is it?
But because we are used to people in the creative arts expressing identikit left-wing views, Kate Bush's comments today shocked many.
Should they have been such a surprise?
Rock has been around a long time. Older artists have audiences that have grown up and grown old with them. All concerned are now a bit too long in the tooth to be worried about sticking it to The Man.
Roger Daltrey didn't die before he got old: he bought a fish farm.
Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood re-established their musical alliance after two decades when they played at a Countryside Alliance event.
So I still think Kate Bush is wonderful even if she thinks Theresa May is wonderful.
