Hello friends, and welcome to Day 4 of this increasingly influential blog, which as you all know, is totally dedicated to supporting Our Jeremy, as is rather subtly hinted at in its title!
Well, today’s blog is a little different! It is on a musical note – pun intended! My good friend and comrade, TotallySickOfRefutingPredictableEULies, recently suggested that I should update the whole of that magnificent Socialist Anthem, The Red Flag, in honour of the imminent ascension of Our Jeremy to Supreme Political Power, and I have indeed done just that!
Needless to say, I have shown the finished version to Jeremy, and am pleased to report that he said I’ve managed to achieve exactly the sort of standard of writing that he has come to expect from me! What a compliment eh! *Blushes*!
Anyway, without further ado, here is, for the very first time, my updated version of The Red Flag, which hopefully will be sung at the next Labour Party Conference. Enjoy!
Our Jeremy’s flag is, and always will be, totally deepest red,
It shames Red Tory Treacherous scum who should rightly be dead,
The sheer Fascism of the Far Right views they predictably hold,
Must be consigned in to the Dustbin of History, ‘ere we grow old.
Look ’round, People’s Tribune John McDonnell totally loves its blaze,
Our sturdy Diane, when on Question Time, happily chants its praise,
In Socialist Councils up and down the land it is joyfully sung,
In anticipation of that 2020 General Election landslide that will soon be won.
It waved above our infant might, defying totally the Hard Right,
When all ahead was a total neoliberal hegemony which we had to fight,
It witnessed many a totally predictable act of treachery, and how!
Friends, whatever we do, we really must not change its colour now.
It well recalls the triumphs past, i.e. Jeremy’s election on 12th September last,
It gives hope of peace at last, when the Malvinas to the Argentinians are passed,
The banner bright, the symbol plain, defying those Red Tories who are such pains,
Upholding our Human Rights and taxing the Banksters’ totally unjustified gains.
It suits today the weak and base, i.e. the Red Tory traitors who are a total disgrace,
Whose minds are fixed on how to sell out Socialism and put Fascism in its place,
To cringe before the 1%’s frown, and set up compulsory Food Banks in every town,
And, in an act of total treachery to Our Movement, haul the sacred emblem down.
With all our hearts we all pledge total loyalty to Our Jeremy, all of us walking tall,
To keep on totally fighting the Right-wing Red Tory Traitors and scum till we fall;
Come every sort of Bedroom Tax, Zero-Hours Contract and Tory Austerity grim,
This wonderfully updated (though I say so myself!) song shall be our parting hymn.
