In Honour of Jeremy Corbyn.

God save the queen
The fascist regime
They made you a moron
Potential H-bomb

God save the queen
She ain’t no human being
There is no future
In England’s dreaming

Don’t be told what you want
Don’t be told what you need
There’s no future, no future,
No future for you

God save the queen
We mean it man
We love our queen
God saves

God save the queen
‘Cause tourists are money
And our figurehead
Is not what she seems

Oh God save history
God save your mad parade
Oh Lord God have mercy
All crimes are paid

When there’s no future
How can there be sin
We’re the flowers in the dustbin
We’re the poison in your human machine
We’re the future, your future

God save the queen
We mean it man
We love our queen
God saves

God save the queen
We mean it man
And there is no future
In England’s dreaming

No future, no future,
No future for you
No future, no future,
No future for me

No future, no future,
No future for you
No future, no future
For you

  2. The Eustonites are in full fury over this: so much for their liberalism.

  3. No such hysteria, as I remember, over Cameron taking a ‘selfie’ at Mandela’s funeral …

  4. If he had sung, they’d all have been bleating about his ‘hypocrisy’. Don’t expect things to get any better any time soon.

  5. “If he had sung, they’d all have been bleating about his ‘hypocrisy’”: that was going to be my other point, Francis…

  6. BBC news.

    “So here is the chatter: that one or a number of the New Labour Blairite ultras could cross the floor to the Tories, because of their personal relationship with Osborne – to whom they feel closer, in a political and social sense, than they do to Labour’s new leader, Jeremy Corbyn.

    Osborne mixes in the same modish London metrosexual and metropolitan elite circles as them. He takes their calls, responds to their emails, and is fully abreast of their current agony.

    And they admire him. More than once I’ve been told, by a couple of their gang, that Osborne is the most impressive politician of the moment.

    Naturally it would be quite a coup for the Tories if the ascent of Corbyn led to Labour defections to their ranks.

    As is well known, both Osborne and Cameron were great admirers of Tony Blair, almost his disciples – and they both believe elections are won from the centre of politics.”

  7. That would be extremely welcome. No efforts should be spared in assisting Blairite ultras to find their true political home.

  8. Indeed.

    You put it in a kindly and appropriate fashion Francis.

  10. Gary Gibbon on Channel 4 News last night (Weds. sept 16) quoted an anonymous Shadow Cabinet minister –

    “There is going to be an almighty bust up. Bigger than the 1980s. It’ll have to come at some point and it’ll have to be brutal putting the left in a box for 30 years or out of the Party.”

    You can see it here under “Corbyn’s crowd-sourced PMQ’s debut” from the four minute mark.

    I think Robert Peston’s description is just what he says – chatter. There are no quotes from anyone, Tory or Blairite. Gary Gibbon’s quote, on the other hand, has the ring of truth. The PLP will be looking for the Shadow Cabinet to “lay down the law”, in particular Tom Watson (pro-Nato, pro-Trident) who has his own mandate as Deputy Leader. Policy “clarification” from Corbyn over Nato and Trident (particularly this) could set the process for the “bust up”. Remember, Unite has 13.000 members working on Trident replacement and, while it opposes it on paper, it also opposes these people losing their jobs and wants viable transitional jobs to replace them.

    Labour conference will probably set the scene for discussions between MPs and Union leaders. If Conference votes to support a Trident replacement, would Corbyn acquiesce and accept this? Will he walk through the voting chamber of the House of Commons to support a replacement? Unlikely, maybe there will be a “conscience” fudge on this issue.

    But a fudge can only last so long and, at the moment, it looks like the anti-Corbynistas, in and out of the Shadow Cabinet, are biding their time in preparation for the “bust up”.

  11. The PLP is awash with veterans and graduates of the 80s who’s basic instinct, let alone considered response, will be to “fight back”. They are better organised and more studied at this than the left and control the party apparatus. Is there sufficient time to galvanize Corbyn voters into an effective counterweight in the wider party?

    Sadly I think not.
