“Oh Mr Cameron” – anti Tory song by my Mum!
My Mum and Dad went to Glasgow last weekend to see Paul McCartney at Hampden Park, and decided to make a little bit of a hollibobs out of it.
I got in touch on Tuesday to ask what they’d been up to on holiday. I got a text back saying: “Just been on a demo at Glasgow Town Hall against Tory cuts.”
Funny thing is, when she got back to Liverpool, she had a song that she’d written while on the demo.
The tune is based on an old music hall number but she’s cleverly changed the words.
I chucked in a chorus and, against her vehement protests, gave it a public airing at the Woody Guthrie Folk Club last night.
I think it’s boss, so three cheers for my Mum. Her song has already been requested to be played at a big trade union event in September.
