Video Saturday – John Lennon

The Christmas period doesn’t start until you hear this song and with only eight more days for me to work before I cram all of my remaining holidays into the end of the year its about time it started.

Its easy to forget now that this song was highly political when released at Christmas 1971 and followed Lennon and Ono’s 1969 “War is Over – If You Want Its” billboard campaign which lead to the Nixon administration ordering a CIA investigation into him and his residency in the USA with a four year campaign to deport him and denial of permanent residency until 1976.
