Keir Starmer: Captain Flip Flop

Flippety Floppety Flip Flop Flip. 🤣
5

Good day to you,

And here is the latest in our series of satirical songs to celebrate the Great Distraction that is the General Election. I think it should put a smile on your face.

From Schubert last week to Sir Arthur Sullivan this week, with music beautifully played and recorded by Wayne McIntyre and the video shot and edited by the unfeasibly patient Will Freeman.

Enjoy!

Please invite all allies to enjoy this video.

Laughter, opportunity and acclaim!

And, of course, the …

Edinburgh Fringe - August 2-18

Shaping the Earth is another one of my lectures with funny bits, this one all about the history of mining. It’s at Panmure House, in the room in which Adam Smith wrote Wealth of Nations.

The show is at 2pm from August 2nd to 18th and you can get tickets here.

You really should put your email address in the box below..

Until next time,

Dominic

Lyrics

Starmer said he’s going nationalise the trains
Now he isn’t going to nationalise the trains
The water, mail or energy
He dropped that rather cleverly 
That is no longer part of the campaign

He will spend 28 billion
Green prosperity for millions
No he won’t he’s going to think on that again

He’s going to abolish tuition fees
No he isn’t cos of the economy
He will always wear the poppy
No he shouldn’t wear a poppy
Will you just ignore these u-turns if you please

He just wants to gets elected
Without saying what’s affected
He has so many people to appease

He’s Captain Flip-Flop!
Flippety floppety
Flippety floppety
Flip flop flip
He’s Captain Flip-Flop 

He’s Captain Flip-Flop!
Flippety floppety
Flippety floppety
Flip flop flip
He’s Captain Flip-Flop 

Women can have penises,
Yes they can, not they can’t, yes they, not they can’t
Women can have penises,
Yes they can, not they can’t, yes they, not they can’t

He tried to Rayner to shut her gob
On second thoughts he gave her lots of jobs
He’s very very working class
His upbringing was middle class
He’s oh so clear and yes thingamabob

As leader of the CPS
He let off Saville what a mess
Never mind he did a splendid job     

Yes, Corbyn was a colleague and a friend
Whose career in Labour he brought to an end
Yes, he fired Diane Abbot
And re-hired Diane Abbot
And now he’s going to think on that again

His name is Keir Starmer
And he is white Obama
Well, maybe not let’s think on that again

He’s Captain Flip-Flop!
Flippety floppety
Flippety floppety
Flip flop flip
He’s Captain Flip-Flop 

He’s standing up for common sense
Kneeling down, standing up, kneeling down, standing up.
He’s standing up for common sense
Kneeling down, standing up, kneeling down, standing up

He’s standing, he’s kneeling
He’s no-ing, he’s yessing
He’s flipping, he’s flopping
He’s flip flop flip

Israel can defend itself,
Yes, it can, no it can’t, yes it can, no it can’t
Rejoin the EU
Yes we will, no we won’t, yes we will, no we won’t 

We will, we won’t
We can. we can’t
Captain Flip-Flop!
