Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

One of two today inspired by libelreform.org, wanting reform of the UK's ridiculous libel laws.
We're only making plans for libel
We're only making plans for it
We're only making plans for libel
Libel laws need changing can't you see
Right now, the libel laws are shit
Right now they're crappy
Right now they're crappy
Right now they're crappy, they don't work

We're only making plans for libel
It's wrong how libel law is built
We're only making plans for libel
Libel has a presumption of guilt
And then of course there's "Justice" Eady
And Justice Eady
And Justice Eady
And Justice Eady rules the world

Libel law, it is broken
It's against free speech
And Eady, is he jokin'?
Libel is crappy, it don't work
We're only making plans for libel

Great job, Phil! This is one of my fave XTC songs! I got almost all their albums except for Transistor Blast, Upsy Daisy Assortment, and Fuzzy Warbles. Sue them $555 for libel!

Thanks :)

Christie - 'fraid it's not really one of mine, but I've had the tune going round my head since reading the libel reform stuff. But $555 wouldn't even pay the lawyer's time for the first phone call :-(

Warren - Nay, nay and thrice nay :-)
