Tune: Royal Oak, or All Things Bright.
Thanks to @SNoozeInBrief on Twitter for the first line of the Refrain...

Strong and stable leadership
Of spite and greed and gall;
Right-wing tabloid readership;
The Tories hate us all.

1) Each child in every family
Each library and school;
The Tories steal their funds, and
Delight in being cruel.
Strong and stable leadership...

2) The rich man in his castle,
The poor man at his gate;
The Tories strip their assets
To sell them to their mates.
Strong and stable leadership...

3) The doctors and the nurses
on whom we all rely:
Theresa will expel them
And won't care if you die.
Strong and stable leadership...

Feel free to add verses, if and only if you're happy for me to record them (or not, as I see fit.)

With righteous indignation
How nobly they assail
All wreckers of our nation
Named in the Daily Mail

How tirelessly they censure
How quickly they condemn
The avaricious bankers...
Oh wait, that's right, not them.

The rich man in his castle,
He wants the poor man's vote,
So he can claim expenses,
To clean the castle's moat.

Hi! Here via [personal profile] angelofthenorth. Um...

So I'm a Lib Dem, and I don't know if you know, but one of the things we do at lib dem conference is get drunk and sing political filks at a thing called Glee Club. I'm one of the cohosts. We've been batting about this idea for a couple of weeks but not really done much with it. And you've clearly got further... Would you mind if we used your verses? Or would you want us to specifically avoid using your verses because you detest Lib Dems and all our little workings? If we used your stuff I'm afraid the only thing you'd get would be a writing credit in the Liberator song book - none of us get paid.

Thank you! Someone generally records wobbly YouTube footage of new songs; I'll try to remember to flag it up to you
