Leon Rosselson (born 22 June 1934, Harrow, Middlesex) is an English songwriter and writer of children's books. After his early involvement in the folk music revival in Britain, he came to prominence, singing his own satirical songs, in the BBC's topical TV programme of the early 1960s, That Was The Week That Was. He toured Britain and abroad, singing mainly his own songs and accompanying himself with acoustic guitar.

Leon Rosselson, A Proper State. Leon Rosselson never cared for fashion or fame, and at 73, he's not going to change now. In the 1960s he wrote satirical songs for the TV show That Was the Week That Was, then went on to record a whole batch of albums that mixed black humour and passionate political beliefs in a way that guaranteed he would be ignored by the music industry. But he has continued to perfect his skills, with surprising results. This new album is predictably angry, but at times startlingly original and sophisticated.

Leon Rosselson is an acclaimed singer and songwriter with more than 50 years of performing under his belt and the author of 17 children's books. Here you can find more information, a complete bibliography and musicography of Leon's works as well as an up to date list of upcoming gigs.

Transferring Israeli settlers into the occupied territory is illegal, as is transferring Palestinian prisoners into Israeli jails. The Wall, built largely on Palestinian land was judged illegal by the International Court of Justice in 2004. The collective punishment inflicted on the people of Gaza is a war crime under the Fourth Geneva Convention. Israel itself is a racist state where ‘Arabs’ are viewed as a demographic threat.
