Emily Hobhouse, known as the 'Angel of Love' in South Africa, was villified in the British Press.

Lyrics

EMILY STANDS STRONG
Written & Performed by Steve Dagleish

When the angel of love meets the sword of the Lord
And Kitchener’s blade so clean
When Albion’s papers pour down their scorn
On this traitor of Empire, of country and Queen

Emily stands strong
Comforting strangers we won’t have belong

Truth on the scaffold, wrong on the throne
When Parliament sit on their hands
Mothers in death camps, children in chains
Rattled by lords with no shame
