Campbell: Taylor Swift can look after herself

DUP MP Gregory Campbell says it’s not up to him to look after the financial welfare of country-pop cross-over sensation Taylor Swift.

“Taylor Swift has considerable financial and musical clout across the globe, that is not shared by the hundreds and perhaps thousands of musicians who have not yet broken through and perhaps will never reach anything like the standing that she has,” he said.

Speaking during a debate at Westminster on the problems artists face monetising their cultural production online, Mr Campbell said: “What we are trying to do today is represent those artists, as opposed to one who has made a breakthrough and can take a stand. We are representing the many who cannot do that.”
