Dizzee and WIZ reunite for their second video together, and deliver another passionate broadside at England in its utter rottenness.

Diz, the voice of reason in artful dodger garb, takes on the celebrity-obsessed, money-worshipping, torch-wielding, grotesque mob - in a typically ye olde English procession hailing new English values.

Broad sweeps of symbolism hit the nail firmly on the head - and the whole thing rocks as well. Great work, produced in about two weeks flat by Phil Tidy.
