The Lyrics

As you might guess, I was never a fan of Margaret Thatcher... and possibly the least appealing member of the Conservative government of that time became Home Secretary, and is now a wannabe Prime Minister... Michael Howard. Scary thought.
It is twenty-five years since when
Maggie Thatcher got to number ten
She's been going batty ever since
Her voice is guaranteed to make you wince
She headed up a motley crew
A cabinet she ruled for years:
Maggie Thatcher's Loony Right-Wing Band

They're Maggie Thatcher's Loony Right-Wing Band
For way too long they ran the show
They're Maggie Thatcher's Loony Right-Wing Band
Eleven years to make them go
Maggie Thatcher's Loony, Maggie Thatcher's Loony
Maggie Thatcher's Loony Right-Wing Band

They privatised the railways
They killed the NHS
Emasculated unions
And let the Argentines invade
They let the Argies in...

But after Tony Blair had won
I guess you thought that they'd all gone
But there's one of 'em still going strong
And he wants to string us all along
So let me please point out to you
That slimy greaseball Michael Howard
From Maggie Thatcher's Loony Right-Wing Band


Mi-chael Howard!

Hopefully, I'll never have to parody "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band ... reprise"

There's jack wilson, first again! Phil, I will always remember the 'iron lady's finest hour; after saddam invaded Kuwait, Bush senior and she had a summit (back when britain could actually influence American foreign policy). Bush senior was loathe to come to Kuwaits aid for two reasons, first the world would see it as a war to preserve the flow of oil westward, second that Kuwait was not a democracy and the only sensible way to oust Saddam was to replace him with the old royal administration. Maggie reportedly said: "George, George, now it no time to get all wobbly!" In fairness to Maggie though, she did accomplish some good. Destroying the unions may have been painful to some, but it gives Britain the economic ability her european neighbors would envy. Also, people would typically point to privitisation as a good thing, as it usually makes services run better and cheaper...at least it did in Ireland and america the two countries I have lived in.

This is an inspiration for "Ronald Reagan's Loony Right Wing Band."

Well done. I've got to tell you, I used to like Tony Blair back when we had a Rhodes scholar here in the US as president. But what happened to Mr. Blair once the Buffoon was (s)elected? Doesn't he realize that we have an idiot and a killer as a president?

If you got this on the radio and The Young Ones did a reunion show, they'd have to use this for Rik's favorite song. Nice job, Phil.

I wonder what would happen if Sir Paul McCartney were Prime Minister?
John Jenkins - May 05, 2004 - Report this comment
Good parody, Phil, but I don't see why you consider actions like privatizing railroads loony.
Phil Alexander - May 05, 2004 - Report this comment
You should see what it's done to railways over here, JJ - whether the principle is sound or not, the method chosen (separation of track and rolling stock, no competition but with franchises supported by public subsidy as local monopolies) was just plain crazy. Rather like her union reforms: union reform was necessary, but she tipped the balance way too far in the opposite direction.
Laurence Dunne - May 05, 2004 - Report this comment
Privatization usually works best when it is coupled with market reform to permit competition (demonopolization). That did wonders for the US local phone market, and it is about to be introduced to the electrical market here too. Prices come down, quality of service goes up, corruption is reduced, etc.

Thanks for this one Phil; as a fellow sufferer of Mrs Ts legacy, I empathise. And Howard looks like my 3rd class teacher, who was investigated for child molestation.

Blimey... But you get by when the Tory regime ends.
Phil Alexander - May 06, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, all...
Laurence: privatization only works when coupled with proper competition - the faux markets set up for the NHS and railways have pretty much proved that
Michael - maybe that's what Howard should be singing in the bit in the middle (before the reprise):
What would you think if I was the PM?
Although now I am just an MP
Elect me as leader, I'll win the next one
'Cause you know I can beat Tony B
Oh, I'll get in when this Labour regime ends
Oh, yes I'll win when this Labour regime ends
No, no more spin when this Labour regime ends

...might be on to something, here :-)

Do you remember young William Hague
With the silliest voice that I've heard?
His manifesto was terribly vague
His bandwagons quite absurd
Oh, etc.

Great job, Phil. Good to see someone dealing with the political arrogrance & stupidity occuring on your side of the ocean. I've been amazed by how docilely Blair has fallen into line with Dubyah's foolishness in Iraq.

Very good. It just needs putting to music now. Might have a bash. I'm starting an anti-maggie site for when she dies at www.maggiethatcher.com - buy a T-shirt and celebrate her imminent demise. Any contributions also greatly recieved.
