  • Weller said on his website: "Thematically, it ties in with the title track. We've got to reclaim our heritage and our culture. Claim it back from the f---ing politicians and the establishment."
  • Weller's daughter Leah sung backing vocals. She is his second child from his marriage to Wham! and Style Council singer Dee C. Lee.
  • Weller expanded on this song to The Independent April 24, 2010. He described it as: "A clarion call to wrest our country back from the Government's hands. I don't want to make some grand political statement because I'm still looking for answers myself. But I think we settle for second best and we're treated like c--ts. I haven't voted in the past two elections because they all look the same to me. But I may have to revise that opinion this time; I can't think who else to vote for but Labour."
