It’s amazing how you can still try to be smart,
Thanks to you our economy’s fallen apart,
This Budget Day you have done it again,
Talked a lot but you don’t say a thing,


CHORUS:
You’re all a disgrace, and you’ve mortgaged the country,
All your figures are lies, and you’ve wasted our money,
In thirteen long years you’ve delivered precisely sod-all,
We’ve masses of debt,
and you’ve done nothing at all.

In your speeches you waffle and claim to be proud,
Figures pulled from your arse, and your head in the clouds
Try as you may to say everything’s fine
Deep inside you must know that you’re lying,

CHORUS:
You’re all a disgrace, and you’ve mortgaged the country,
All your figures are lies, and you’ve wasted our money,
In thirteen long years you’ve delivered precisely sod-all,
We’ve masses of debt,
and you’ve done nothing at all.

You’re all a disgrace, and you’ve mortgaged the country,
All your figures are lies, and you’ve wasted our money,
In thirteen long years you’ve delivered precisely sod-all,
We’ve masses of debt,
and you’ve done nothing at all.

(We’ve masses of debt,
and you’ve done nothing at all
We’ve masses of debt,
and you’ve done nothing at all)

You’re all a disgrace,
Your figures are lies,
You’ve mortgaged this land
And you’ve screwed up the country,

You’re all a disgrace, and you’ve mortgaged the country,
All your figures are lies, and you’ve wasted our money,
In thirteen long years you’ve delivered precisely sod-all,
We’ve masses of debt,
and you’ve done nothing at all.

(We’ve masses of debt,
and you’ve done nothing at all
We’ve masses of debt,
and you’ve done nothing at all)

You’re all a disgrace,
Your figures are lies,
You’ve mortgaged this land
And you’ve screwed up the country,

(We’ve masses of debt,
and you’ve done nothing at all
We’ve masses of debt,
and you’ve done nothing at all)

Repeat until we finally get the General Election we so desperately need….

  1. Good lyrics, just about sums it up.

    I personally enjoyed David Cameron ripping into the budget. Had me in stitches.

    I listened to almost plausible Alistair, but realised that he wasn’t adding much because a lot of the taxes he wanted are already due to kick in soon anyway!

    I talked to a small retailer afterwards and he said glumly that he will find it harder to afford to travel to deliver for his business.

    But there you go, that’s Labour for you.

  2. the trial of gordon frown

    sinister priminster clenches
    the benches banister
    turns to his barrister

    but gets no protection
    even the defence has lost all affection
    browns missing a page
    of his plagerised script
    nothing to say
    all words have slipped
    from the mouth of the man
    who was never fit
    to run a wonderful country like this

    so he speaks of past times
    portrays the ways of the tories as crime
    though no word is heard
    of cheques he would not sign
    that could of protected
    our bright men that died
    on a forgein front line

    or of debt and reccesion
    as his party dine
    at our expense
    on red meat and wine

    he stands up and whines
    pining for tony bear
    but his furry friend is no longer there
    is this the cause for the frown gordon wears

    when he airs his ideas
    members sit back
    and pretend not to hear
    when will he quit
    and admit his end is near

    please no more years of red expenses
    going shopping in fear
    of all those products expensive
    let down by the ones
    that promised it all
    when they begun all thier fun
    not one single one
    thought about all the damage yet to be done
    we shall celebrate as labour doth fall
    just like the jester doth bawl
    as he drops juggled balls
    we can only hope that the tories
    will answer the call
    just as boris so chose
    took to his toes
    and rode to city hall

    please paint no 10
    in a new coat of blue
    all of us and our friends
    are voting for you

  3. Anyone remember Lionel Bart’s musical about
    Oliver Twist?
    How about a remake –
    Alistair!
    “You’ve gotta pick a pocket or two…”

  4. Darling’s Budget was like the mouthwash the dentist gives you. It was pale pink, mildly astringent, bland yet nasty and a preparation for some bloody business ahead.

    Chancellors with bushy eyebrows are always bad – Denis Healey, Norman Lamont, Gordon Brown, Alistair Darling. Even Stafford Cripps had a decent pair of puss moth caterpillars above his eyes.

  5. @Ed Gibb

    Sorry, I can’t do a remake of ‘You’ve Gotta Pick a Pocket or Two’, for two reasons.

    1: It’s far too obvious and easy;
    2: I’ve already used that song to have a crack at the BNP and Nick Griffin.

    I’m sure some more Labour-related song parodies will turn up, though.

    @spencer

    I’m disappointed that you found it silly. Perhaps you’d care to expand on that, especially as I missed the R4 broadcast in question?

    Regards to all

    ‘…pick a pocket or two’
    Sorry if it’s obvious and easy. I hope that it’s
    obvious how easy it is for these theives to take
    well over half of my income.

    Regards, Ed

  7. They do seem to have a gift for taking every penny of our cash, don’t they?

    Shame they lack the capability to do anything meaningful with the money.

  8. ‘…indeed burgling, when viewed in Darwinian terms, was clearly approaching a crisis. Burglars were finding that almost everywhere had been burgled. Burglars were forever bumping into one another, stepping on the toes of other burglars. There were burglar jams on rooftops and stairwys, on groaning fire-escapes. Burglars were being burgled by fellow burglars, and were doing the same thing back..Returning from burgling, burglars would discover that
    they had been burgled, sometimes by the very burglar that they themselves had just burgled!’
    From London Fields, by Martin Amis.
    Pretty good description of our Houses of Parliament, and No.10, isn’t it?

  9. Obviously touched a bit of a raw nerve by asking about Boris Johnson’s allegations that his [Ed: not this website] had been hacked during the mayoral campaign.

    Funny we never heard any more about it. It did its job though. The damage had been done.

  10. @spencer: actually his blogspot for boris watchers has been hacked seems as though these people have nothing better to do than criticize a man who actually has the publics interests at heart! another example of biting the hand that feeds you
