The Lyrics

Some interesting language used by our leaders.."fruitcakes, loonies and closet racists" (the Prime Minister, talking about UKIP), "swivel-eyed loons" (a "senior conservative" about his party's activists), "clowns" (Ken Clarke, also about UKIP)

Here’s a story, mad but true
About the Tories, and the EU
And gay marriage, those who disagree
And defections to the U.K.I.P.

Hate, hate
Bummin' Tory, Tory, hate, hate
Bummin' Tory, Tory, hate, hate
Bummin' Tory, Tory, hate


Well, I don't understand why people get so irate
About a guy having a guy for a mate
Or foam at the mouth if you just mention "E.U."
They're nothing more than-a swivel-eyed loons.

And it's been their habit to put down and disparage
U.K.I.P. and its leader: Nigel Farage
Quite as bad as Boris if you're thinking "Buffoon"
So which lot are the swivel-eyed loons?


They put each other down
This bunch of reactionary clowns
Marrying men, and immigration:
It's not the end of swivel-eyes-ation

Cam'ron may have thought he'd covered all o' the bases
Saying they're fruitcakes, loonies and closet racists
But here's the moral, that I'm tellin' you:
A-do not vote-a for-a swivel-eyed loons.

Yes, I'm from the UK - you mean Obama? Speaking as someone who takes an interest in the politics of well over a dozen different countries, I don't think you realize just how lucky you are with Obama :-)

There was an obscure novel "The Devil's Advocate", by Taylor Caldwell, an old-school American conservative/classical liberal/libertarian author. In it a secret cabal of conservatives install a totalitarian dictator in the United States and ramp up the oppression hoping the American people will finally rebel and throw off tyranny forever. Obama could be the leader to pull this off, though I don't think that is his intention. He's no leader, just the tool of men even more ruthless and determined than he. Sounds like UK politicians are up to the same tricks, distracting the public with trivia such as gay marriage, to draw attention away from universal economic disaster.

Obama's racking up the oppression as a totalitarian dictator, is he? He must have a staggeringly good control of the foreign media, because none of this is getting out at all.
