New New Labour is distastefully slick
In so many many ways, I feel sick.
Not just Sir Smear wrapped in union jacks,
Nor plunges of knives into comrades backs,
Those lies fed to hungry media hacks,
Nor those pledges scrapped post leadership win,
Smarmy greetings to welcome back traitors,
Sly installation of old Blarite shite,
Denial of help for workers on strike.
Though all of these things truly bad enough,
It’s their belief that they can win power
If they all mimic Tory personas,
And treat working class folk as total fools,
That really, really, pisses me right off.
