The poet and singer made a scathing attack on the state of society, directly accusing Prime Minister Theresa May of "dividing the people".
“Strong and stable into ruin,” she said as she opened her set on Glastonbury’s West Holts stage, echoing the Tory campaign slogan.
From education, immigration, homeless, the health system and divisions, the poet made an emotional plea for humanity.
“School kids on the hunt for lunch, cut the apron strings at least it keeps the bastards leaning,” she continued.

Her performance was greeted with cheers and applause in the audience while social media users described the performance as “inspiring”, “mesmerising” and "moving". independent.co.uk
