To follow on from my recent post: A message for David Cameron & his marketing team and because of my new found interest in politics, I thought I'd share a brilliant video I came across at work today.
'Cameron's Conference Rap' is by the mashup king Cassetteboy and was created as a way to thank Cameron for making parody videos exempt from copyright laws at the start of this month.
Cassetteboy has done a grand job on Cameron, rearranging and stitching together his party conference speeches, to highlight the many reasons why it's time to get this party out. And to one of my favourite raps from my school-days: Eminem - Lose Yourself.
The video is not only creatively brilliant but it also supports my views on the conservative party. I've taken the time to note down the lyrics, so have a read - it's easy to miss the gems in the video.
Thank you... Thank you...
We've been recording a music video and it goes like this...
I'm hardcore and I know the score, and I am disgusted by the poor, and my chums matter more, because we are the law and I've made sure we ready for class war.
Taking money from the man who works long hours, giving power to the tycoon in the glass towers. That is why I can look you in the eye and say this is the party of the mother f****s, we don't care about the mother suckers because this is the party of the mother f*****s, and no, I don't think that's a dirty word.
So let the beat drop...
I come here with flows right from the top, everybody knows if you work in a shop we won't help you and you know what people rising from the bottom to the top, has got to stop. We have the bravery to bring back slavery, working in a supermarket is just the start of it.
My friends there is no job at the end of it. You'll be working for your benefits forever.
Let me get this off my chest, saying yes we are selling the NHS, and we'll give you less and that's just for starters, even after privatising sticking plasters, it is a social disaster that makes own heart beat faster.
Now I am your master, the last thing this country needs, is us the conservatives, worst than the alternative. We don't care if you're driven to despair don't you dare, say it's not fair.
I'm not saying it's not funny, it is for me, I've got loads of money. This is the party of the mother f*****s, the country is run for me and my mothers. This is the party of the party of the mother f******s. We just don't care about the mother suckers.
