PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction
When the Forces for War are Greater than the Forces for Peace   Then the World is in Danger
Politics is not a Dirty Word. It is a Way of Life. How is Your Way of Life Today ?

MAY THE DANCING PINK PANTHER 

Dancing
 
The Radical
12th September 2018
 
Does Anyone deny that the Dancing queen of No 10 looked very like the original Panther
 
Most of the Panther films were written and directed by Blake Edwards, with theme music composed by Henry Mancini. 
 
Elements and characters inspired by the films were adapted into other media, including books, comic books and animated series.
 
HOWEVER, AM I BEING TOO KIND TO THE PINKIES IN PARLIAMENT
 
THE ANTI CORBYN PLP ?
 
IF MAY COULD BECOME THE BLUE PANTHER
 
SOME OF THE PINK PLP ( Parliamentary Labour Party ) HAVE ALREADY BECOME INFAMOUS
The people’s flag is palest pink
It’s not the colour you might think
White collar workers stand and cheer
The Labour government is here 
 
We’ll change the country bit by bit
So nobody will notice it
And just to show that we’re sincere
We’ll sing The Red Flag once a year
 
The cloth cap and the woolen scarf
Are images outdated
For we’re the party’s avant garde
And we are educated
 
So raise the rolled umbrella high
The college scarf, the old school tie
And just to show that we’re sincere
We’ll sing The Red Flag once a year
However as with most ‘traditional’ songs there are a multitude of variants which often include additional verses that seek to establish a certain contemporary relevance, such as;
 
The workers’ flag is palest pink
Since Gaitskell dipped it in the sink
Now Harold’s done the same as Hugh
The workers’ flag is brightest blue.
Of course, since both Hugh Gaitskell and Harold Wilson are now dead, that verse would likely not be sung these days, although an ensemble known as the Red Notes Choir apparently includes the verse;
 
New Labour’s flag is palest pink
It’s not as red as you might think
And Tony’s added shades of blue
He does not care for me and you
And back in 2007 an individual known only as Mac posted the following version as a comment on the Daily Telegraph’s website
 
The people’s flag is palest pink
Best drop it now before we stink
I rather like the Tory Blue
And Cam’ron’s policies – I’ll have them too
Now ditch we all that old red flower
Anything to cling to power
The working class can kiss my arse
It’s Gord I worship, first and last.
 
Naturally making fun of the Labour Party would not be of any relevance on the other side of the Atlantic, although as it turns out the Americans have their own parody of The Red Flag which is generally known as The Foreman’s Job, as in;
 
The working class can kiss my ass
I’ve got the foreman’s job at last
The system I’ll no more resist
I’m going to be a capitalist
 
Now you can raise the standard high
Beneath its shade to fight and die
But brother, please don’t count on me
I’ve up and joined the bourgeoisie
Or alternatively;
 
The working class can kiss my ass
I got the foreman’s job at last
You can tell old Joe I’m off the dole
He can stick the Red Flag up his ‘ole
Better still however is the anarchist parody;
 
The workers’ flag is blackest black
The red one’s just for bureaucrats
We’ll organise to smash the state
And shoot the vanguard while we wait
 
Then raise your blackest banners high
Workers win while fascists die
The workers’ flag is blackest black
The red one’s just for bureaucrats.
