British Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson's coronavirus mismanagement, cartoon

This cartoon by Citizen Chicane is about British Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson‘s coronavirus mismanagement.

Boris Johnson accused of putting business interests before public health: here.

Why is Britain’s coronavirus response so poor? The Covid-19 failure has deep roots within the ideology of successive governments that have been committed to centralised, privatised solutions and hostile to the public sector, says SOLOMON HUGHES.

English slave trader Colston, Tina Turner parody

This 9 June 2020 satirical music video from Britain is a parody of the song Proud Mary by Tina Turner.

It says about itself:

[17th-century Bristol, England slave trader] Edward Colston – Rolling to the River

The statue of Edward Colston sings.


Left a good job in the city
Joined the Royal African Company
Worked my way up to Deputy Governor
19,000 slaves died on our journeys
Statue was still erected
But it seems some of you objected
Now I’m rolling, rolling, rolling to the river

Grave of enslaved African in Bristol vandalised in ‘retaliation attack’: here.

Donald Trump violent photo op, satiric video

This 5 June 2020 satiric animated cartoon video by Mark Fiore from the USA says about itself:

Operation Photo Op

And here I thought we wouldn’t have troops on the street until closer to the election. The George Floyd protests have laid bare the underlying horriffic racism that has marred the United States throughout our history. Of course, Donald Trump is definitely not the guy we want in office to help heal our country’s racial wounds.

A perfect storm of Trumpism happened when the administration ordered police and military forces to violently clear peaceful protesters from Lafayette Park next to the White House, just so Trump could make a show of holding a Bible in front of St. John’s Church. The president finally behaved like one of the autocrats he admires. He’s a wannabe strongman who unfortunately just showed us he has the tools to be an actual strongman.

But it’s not just Trump, Attorney General William Barr, Jared Kushner and Mark Esper are all complicit in this attack on our democracy and their actions should not be laughed off as just “Trump being Trump”. In the United States, this sort of thing is illegal, I only hope our laws catch up with this band of criminals bent on undermining our democracy.

Stay safe, keep fighting for racial justice and watch out for troop deployments.

US cops shot dead black man passed out in a car the same day George Floyd was killed: here.

Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News promotes conspiracy theory that the mass anti-racist demonstrations are not caused by police brutality, but by the ‘Weather Underground’ (defunct in the 1970s): here. Probably, the puppets of anti-Semitic billionaire Rupert Murdoch base that on the fact that, today, there is a meteorological information internet site, called Weather Underground.

COVID-19 danger not over, British parody song

This 31 May 2020 satiric music video from Britain is called Katrina and the Second Waves – Flocking on Sunshine.

It is a parody of the song Walking on Sunshine, by Katrina and the Waves.

It is about people in Britain who think that the COVID-19 pandemic is basically over: because Dominic Cummings, adviser to Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson, violates public health rules against travel. Because Boris Johnson says people should go back working at unsafe non-essential-workplaces, some people think it is supposedly safe to go to crowded beaches; which may cause a second wave of COVID-19 illness.

The video says about itself:

I used to think lockdown was over, now baby I’m sure
And I just can’t wait to spend all day down at Durdle Door
Now every time I check on the guidance, it just says ‘stay alert’
I think that means: try to emerge from your day out unhurt

Now we’re flocking on sunshine, whoa
We’re flocking on sunshine, whoa
We’re flocking on sunshine, whoa
And don’t it feel good!

I used to think lockdown was over, now I know that it’s true
The government’s fucking atrocious, why can’t we be too?
The public loos are closed so I’ll just have to bury my crap
Like a cat
I already did my bit for the NHS when I clapped

Oh yeah
Now we’re flocking on sunshine, whoa
We’re flocking on sunshine, whoa
We’re flocking on sunshine, whoa
And don’t it feel good!

British Conservative Cummings, poor people and COVID-19

This 24 May 2020 satiric music video from Britain about the adviser of British Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson is called Dominic Cummings – Driving Home for COVID.

It is a parody of the song Driving Home for Christmas by Chris Rea.

It says about itself:

Dominic Cummings is driving home for COVID-19.


I’m driving home for COVID
Oh, I can’t wait to just get loaded
Driving home for COVID, yeah
Dance to ABBA, drink some wine

Got this nagging cough
But I will be there
I’ll shake it off
Stop at the Welcome Break
Grab some Benylin
Driving home for COVID

260 miles, but I’ll get there

Top-to-toe in dead cats
Bamboozling you with 5D chess
Soon there’ll be a fuckup, yeah
To distract from the previous mess

Now I’m driving back
To London, but I
I will return
Return to Durham
Driving with my COVID

This 24 May 2020 video is from in front of Dominic Cummings´ house.

This 24 May 2020 video from England says about itself:

Jaywick‘s fight: Community support in one of UK’s poorest towns

While towns and cities across the United Kingdom struggle with the effect of the new coronavirus, one of the poorest places is coping with the pandemic.

Jaywick made international headlines when the United Nations highlighted it as an example of how the British government has failed to deal with poverty.

Al Jazeera’s Laurence Lee reports from Jaywick in the UK.

Singer Bryan Adams echoes Trump’s anti-Chinese racism

This 12 May 2020 satiric music video from Britain is called Summer of COVID-19 (Bryan Adams parody).

It is a parody of Bryan Adams’ song Summer of ’69.

The lyrics are:

I got my first real backlash
Tweeting out a racist whine
Typed until my fingers bled
It was the summer of COVID-19

Those bastards ate a load of bats
Now I can’t play the Albert Hall
Pretty shit, man I hate China
At least my tweet is going viral

I might be real old now
But this summer’s gonna last forever
And if I had the choice
(Redacted for extreme racism)
This is the worst day of my life

Oh yeah
I hate the summer of COVID-19
And China

Donald Trump and coronavirus, satiric animated cartoon

This 2320 animated cartoon by Mark Fiore from the USA says about itself

The Healthiest Man on the Planet!

There is nothing to worry about because President Trump is doing a tremendous job, right? Plus, it’s all China’s fault. And if it’s not China’s fault, the Europeans are behind our current virus troubles. After all, it is a “foreign virus.” Paging Stephen Miller!

British Conservative government’s coronavirus response, musical parody

This 21 March 2020 musical video is a satire about the British Conservative government‘s coronavirus response.

It is parody of the song Ghost Town by The Specials.

It says about itself:

The Special Interests – Ghost Town

The UK government‘s Specials tribute band release a song for the coronavirus outbreak.


This town
Let’s make it slightly like a ghost town
Try your best not to go the pub
This place
We’re considering a lockdown
But please don’t horde pasta
Too much fighting in the Asda

Do you remember the good old days before the ghost town?
We’d dance and sing and point at A&Es and have them shut down
(That one there!)

This town
Let’s brief imminent lockdown
People leave town and the virus spreads
Probably shouldn’t have scrapped all those hospital beds
This place
Let’s make it slightly like a ghost town
Tests only for celebrities
Mortgage holidays
The renters getting hungry

Do you remember the behavioural science at the Nudgestock?
I made some notes, just let me program them into Matt Hancock

This town
Let’s make it partially like a ghost town
Unenforced, so insurers don’t scream
This place
Let’s dither on a clampdown
Herd immunity
Situation getting shitty

Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, humorous music video

This 26 February 2020 humorous music video from Britain says about itself:

Bernie the Dinosaur

Bernie Sanders‘s Barney the Dinosaur tribute act.


I love unions
They love me
Not so much the DNC
They want Michael Bloomberg, Mayor Pete or Joe
They’ll uphold the status quo

I love unions
They love me
Not so much Team Hillary
If you ask me, they’d take four more years of Trump
They can take a running jump

I love unions
They love me
Less so MSNBC
They don’t like to hear about the CIA
Installing General Pinochet

I love unions
They love Bern
Don’t give Trump a second term
Which’ll happen if it’s Pete or Mini Mike
Don’t ask me, ask Dick Van Dyke

It is a parody of the song Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh (A Letter from Camp).

It says about itself:

Goodbye fadduh
Off you go to
Kampala, Uganda
Idi Amin
Is rampagin’
And he said he wants to clear out all the Asians

Though I’d really
Like to aid ya
I’m afraid you’re
Unskilled labour
You work hard for
Your retirement
But I’m afraid that you don’t meet our points requirement

Got eight million
Folks inactive
I can make ‘em
More proactive
Students, carers
Folks in prison
Who I threw in there for counter-terrorism

Civil servants
Said I’m crackers
So I kicked ‘em
In the knackers
Now off you go to
Potential slaughter
Truly yours, your dearest ever-lovin’ daughter

Home Office is ‘institutionally racist’! The way to end the ‘hostile environment’ is to bring down the Tories: here.

The move to appoint Andrew Sabisky as an adviser to the British government confirms the emergence of a fascist element in the Conservative Party. In blog posts and comments, Sabisky has said, “[V]ery real racial differences in intelligence are significantly—even mostly—genetic in origin” and that “it would be nice” if politicians paid attention “from the standpoint of immigration control …” He has argued, “One way to get around the problems of unplanned pregnancies creating a permanent underclass would be to legally enforce universal uptake of long-term contraception”. here.
