Jeremy Corbyn to adopt new Labour theme song (Irony warning)

Jeremy Corbyn has been looking for a new campaign song for the Labour party because "Things can only get better" has too many Blairite associations. The search has not been going well.

Serious consideration was given to Spitting image's The Chicken Song but after careful consideration Labour's NEC resolved that this could not be adopted because the line "and behead an eskimo" might be taken as support for aggressive imperialist actions towards native Inuit people ...

A number of comrades proposed an anthem called "The Red Flag on High" but after the NEC looked "The Flag on high" up on wikipedia the people who suggested that idea are now suspended from the Labour party, with half the shadow cabinet threatening to resign if they are not expelled and the other half complaining that this is all a deliberate misunderstanding by embittered Blairites ...

So Comrade Jeremy is now proposing a traditional song which all members of the Labour party should be able to relate to ...
