If you thought you couldn’t see anything more embarrassing from the Brexit fall-out than the March For Leadsom on Parliament, think again.
An enterprising elderly warbler has taken to YouTube to voice his support for exiting the EU via the means of a mind-numbingly awful music video.
The Brexit Song (We’ll Be Strong) by Peter Parsons – whose relationship, if any, to Brexiteering novelist Tony is unknown – sees the singer use pulsating pop to offer advice to those negotiating on behalf of the UK.
Often clad in that most iconically British of headgear – the backwards baseball cap – Mr Parsons offers a succinct summary of the Government’s position with the line: “We’re going round in circles, we don’t know where to go.”
He then offers advice to International Trade Secretary Liam Fox, that “we don’t need nobody else to trade around the world”.
The chorus is a rousing “Brexit, oh Brexit, we’re leaving the European single market”, before, aptly, contradicting his previous stance with: “What do we want? A great deal from Michel Barnier. What do we want? A great deal from David Davis.”
Cultural historians have suggested it might be the worst pop effort from a Brexiteering clown since Neil and Christine Hamilton’s 2006 England Are Jolly Dee.
Whatever, any attempt to enter it into next year’s Eurovision Song Contest would seem a surefire way to crash out without any deal.
