Theresa May parody on Bob Marley music


This parody music video from Britain is called Theresa May – “No Majority No Cry”.

It is a parody of Bob Marley‘s song No Woman No Cry.

It says about itself:

13 July 2017

Theresa May blubs her way through tear-jerking new single “No Majority No Cry”. Sob!

LYRICS:

Do you remember when we used to run
Through the fields of wheat
in Oxfordshire
Trampling all the farmer’s crops
As they shouted at us, “Oi, get off my land, you little bastards
That’s criminal damage, I’m gonna smash your fucking skulls in!”
Yeah
Do you remember when Dimbleby announced
The exit polls, yeah, on the BBC
And there was Georgie with his shit-eating grin

No majority, no cry
No majority, no cry
Everything’s gonna be alright
No majority, no cry

London Wimbledon bosses ban Jeremy Corbyn chanting


This satiric 3 July 2017 video from Wimbledon tennis court in London, England says about itself:

CLIFF RICHARD SINGS ‘OH JEREMY CORBYN‘ AT WIMBLEDON

Actually, it is video of decades ago at Wimbledon, when it rained, there was no tennis and Sir Cliff Richard started singing; with the sound of recent pro-Jeremy Corbyn chanting superimposed.

The satire is because of what this 4 July 2017 video from the USA says:

Wimbledon Issues Ban On Chanting “Jeremy Corbyn“!

From daily The Independent in Britain:

The Corbyn chant was sung by supporters of the [rugby] British and Irish Lions during their game with New Zealand on Saturday [1 July 2017] morning, indicating that this could be a trend beyond Glastonbury. …

Although it is rare, Wimbledon isn’t a stranger to political protests. In 2011 the Spanish anti-austerity 15-M movement were prevented from making a protest during a Rafael Nadal match and in 2016 David Cameron was greeted by boos after Andy Murray acknowledged the former Prime Minister during his victory speech.

Tellingly, the Wimbledon bigwigs, mainly Conservatives, I suspect, have not banned chants supporting wobbly Tory Prime Minister Theresa May. Maybe also because very few, if any, people would think of chanting in support of May. After Ms May’s disastrous austerity policies, disastrous election campaign, disastrous reaction to the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy, disastrous coalition with Irish terrorist homophobes, to whom she gave her magic money tree loot, even many people who have voted Conservative all their lives are thinking seriously about never doing that again. And Tory politicians who at the moment still say in public that they support Theresa May 100% are meanwhile, out of sight of the public, quarreling behind her back whether they should stab her in the back in a few days’ time, a few weeks’ time, or a few months’ time.

The Wimbledon situation reminds me of Brazil. At the recent Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, spectators booed Brazilian coup president Temer at the opening ceremony. So, Temer did not dare to go to the closing ceremony. A bit later, he was booed by spectators of the Paralymics; where tickets were cheaper, so that also some not so well of Brazilians could afford them.

Confidence and supply forever
