Rupert Murdoch and British election upset, Beatles parody


This 9 June 2017 satiric music video from Britain is called The Jeremy Corbeatles – “Fuck You, The Sun“.

LYRICS:

Fuck you, The Sun!
Ha ha ha ha
Fuck you, The Sun!
The Mail and the Express

Rupert Murdoch, I’ve tried my best to be magnanimous
Rupert Murdoch, I can’t contain it any more

Fuck you, The Sun!
Ha ha ha ha
Fuck you, The Sun!
The Mail and the Express

Paul Dacre, the smile has disappeared from your face
Paul Dacre, you can’t fool everyone all the time

Fuck you, The Sun!
Ha ha ha ha
Fuck you, The Sun!
The Mail and the Express

Sun, Sun, Sun, suck your mum
Sun, Sun, Sun, suck your mum

Richard Desmond, you tax-avoiding shit porn baron
Richard Desmond, I might just laugh my arse right off

Fuck you, The Sun!
Ha ha ha ha
Fuck you, The Sun!
The Mail and the Express

Sun, Sun, Sun, suck your mum

British Theresa May, satiric song


This parody music video from Britain is called Theresa May – “Fields of Wheat”.

The song is a parody of Fields of Gold by British singer Sting.

It says about itself:

10 June 2017

Get a bit misty-eyed with Theresa May‘s nostalgic new single “Fields of Wheat“.

LYRICS:

You’ll remember me with a rueful smile
When you’re left with Boris and the DUP
You can tell The Sun I’m strong and stable now
As I run through fields of wheat

So I took my friends for to run a while
Among the fields of barley
The farmers weren’t too pleased
They shouted stuff at us
Like, “Get off our fields of wheat!

Now I take my love, my lovely husband Phillip
Back to those fields of barley
We’ll forget what happened in that election I called
Then we’ll go home and he’ll do the dishes

British Conservative Theresa May satiric songs


This 7 June 2017 parody music video from Britain is called The Human Rights League – “Don’t You Want Me, PM?”

It is a parody of the song Don’t You Want Me by British band The Human League.

It says about itself:

A heartfelt musical appeal to Theresa May from the European Convention on Human Rights (aka Human Rights Act).

LYRICS:

You were working as Home Secretary for David Cameron
When I met you
You’ve waited years for an excuse to turn me around
Turn me into something new
Now seven years later on and you’re the Prime Minister
Success has been so easy for you
There’s been so much austerity, but think how much more
There could be outside of the EU

Don’t, don’t you want me?
You say that I get in the way of tackling terrorism
Don’t, don’t you want me?
I spy ulterior motives, please excuse my cynicism
It’s much too late to learn
You’ve made another U-turn
You better change it back or we will both be sorry

Don’t you want me, PM?
Don’t you want me, Prime Minister?

‘Liar Liar’ song performed outside BBC

3 June 2017

On way home yesterday I encountered this lot in the street.

Their sound system wasn’t great and the speakers kept blowing so I’ve overlaid the actual track for most of the video.

It’s already at No. 1 in download charts and No. 4 in official charts.

If you want to buy it to get it higher you can from here.

PM admits Captain Ska won’t be on her playlist

Wednesday 7th June 2017

PRIME MINISTER Theresa May admitted yesterday she was unhappy with the song labelling her a “liar”.

Captain Ska, in conjunction with anti-austerity campaign group the People’s Assembly, released Liar Liar GE2017 two weeks ago.

The song, which includes snippets of Ms May’s speeches alongside the lyrics “she’s a liar, you can’t trust her, no no no,” has shot to number four in the charts despite an airtime ban by the BBC.

The People’s Assembly demonstrated outside BBC HQ last week, with a performance from Captain Ska in defiance of the ban when the song’s chart position was announced live on radio.

Ms May told BBC Radio 1’s Newsbeat that she had “heard bits” of the song and wasn’t very happy about it.

“I don’t much like it, I don’t think anybody would when they heard a song about themselves like that,” the beleaguered PM moaned.

People’s Assembly national secretary Sam Fairbairn said: “Theresa May might not like it, but the lyrics ring true. She’s lied about NHS funding, she’s lied about education funding and she’s lied about social care funding.

He added: “She is a disaster, her election campaign has been a disaster and her government has been a disaster.

“But now we need to mobilise. This general election is the most important for generations and is a once in a lifetime opportunity to elect an anti-austerity, anti-war, pro-public services government for the many not the few.

Young people should come out and vote in record numbers. This is our moment.”

Donald Trump channels his inner Bruce Springsteen on new single “Covfefe”.

LYRICS:

The times are tough now, just getting tougher
No politician has ever been treated rougher
Covfefe, come on baby, covfefe
Well I’m looking for a lover who will come on in and covfefe
I’ve got all the best words – have you heard this one?
It’s what you call the bed a Russian whore has pissed on
Covfefe, shut the door and covfefe
Well I’m looking for a lover who will come on in and covfefe

UNDERSTANDING WHAT THE IMPENDING BIRTH CONTROL ROLLBACK MEANS FOR YOU “The Trump administration is on the verge of rolling back a federal rule that requires most employers to cover birth control in their health insurance plans at no cost to women. The White House Office of Management and Budget posted on its website that it is reviewing an interim final rule that would allow religious employers to deny contraception coverage to their female employees.” [HuffPost]
