Keane star ‘horrified’ at Tories’ use of song

By Sandamali Zbyszewski

The Conservative party has been sharply criticised by Keane’s drummer Richard Hughes for using the band’s music during this morning’s manifesto launch.

Richard Hughes made plain his dismay on Twitter: “Told the Tories played Keane at their manifesto launch. Am horrified. To be clear – we were not asked. I will not vote for them.”

The band’s 2004 hit, Everbody’s Changing was used this morning at the launch of the Conservative’s manifesto in Battersea, south london.

No-one from Conservative central office was able to comment when contacted.
