Roger Waters, co-founder of Pink Floyd, got into an argument with American singer Dionne Warwick who is slated to perform in Tel Aviv later in May. 

Waters has been outspoken about Middle Eastern politics and pledged his support to the Gaza Freedom March in 2011. Back then he had said, "You can attack Israeli policy without being anti-Jewish ... It's like saying if you criticise the US policy you are being anti-Christian. I'm critical of the Israeli policy of occupying Palestinian land and their policy of building settlements, which is entirely illegal under international law, and also of ghettoising the people whose land they are building on ...

Britain's Conservative Party, in a pretty much desperate attempt to woo the ever increasing India-origin voters in the run up to the May 7 general elections has come up with a piece offering. A song in Hindi. 

Commissioned by a group that calls itself the 'Conservative friends of India', the song called 'Neela Hai Aasma' features Cameron doing all sorts of "India" things, which needless to say wreak a little of cultural appropriation, against a very blue London sky, so unnaturally blue that the top part of Big Ben appears blue as well.
