It seems that politics is becoming more of a joke these days, and politicians are like contestants competing for our support. A parrady of "Who'll take the ball from Maggie Thatcher" by the Corries.

Oh, what a joy we’ve found in politics.

 

Oh, what a joy we’ve found in politics,

 Our politicians show they really care,

Their deals  will  prove our ultimate salvation,

Without them, we  haven’t got a prayer.

 

In the  state of Britain all  our parties,

Compete  to have the lime light on TV,

The ones who win show great charisma,

And  are always  shown on the BBC.

West minster parliament is their arena,

Where those who run our country can perform,

 And we can choose our favourite actor,

And watch with open mouths as the show goes on.

 

Oh, what a joy we’ve found in politics,

Our politicians show they really care,

Their deals will prove our ultimate  salvation,

Without them, we haven’t got a prayer.

 

First up we have  the lovely Sturgeon,

A girl who knows exactly what she wants,

She’ll trample over anyone to get it,

But her  antics cause great laughter  for the Scots.

Next up, we  have our friend Theresa,

Who  has quite a militant strategy,

To win the favour from her fan base,

 Will she win, we shall have to wait and see.

 

Oh,  what a joy we’ve found in politics,

Our politicians show they really care,

Their deals will prove our ultimate  salvation,

Without them, we  haven’t got a prayer.

 

Corbyn’s general style is rather different,

a  laid back and bumbling sort of style,

 his support increased  all of a sudden,

though he lost  it for a while.

Farage leaves a lot to be desired,

A man who’s fame  has come and gone,'

because secretly  he knows he’s just  too comic,

A man who’ll never be picked as number one.

 

Oh, what a joy we’ve found in politics,

Our politicians show they really care,

Their deals will prove to be our salvation,

Without them, we haven’t got a prayer.

 

So there, we have all our contestants,

They will only prove more fun in days to come,

By keeping us informed throughout our media,

Their names will be known to everyone.

The public is kept up to speed on Facebook,

Who’s feeds show constant reruns of their games,

We all slap our heads in agitation,

And say as one ‘they’re all the  bloody same.
