Sunday music spot - Ko Ko's little list from the Mikado

As it became clear during the "Week of the long Stilettos" that our new Prime Minister had a rather longer "little list" of ministers to be sacked than anyone had expected, I thought I would put down the Lord High Executioner's "little list" song from the Mikado for this week's Sunday music spot.

While searching for a suitable clip of that song I found this English National Opera version, which up until this month had been bang up to date and is hysterically funny. (It does refer to David Cameron as the PM, has a reference to the England Rugby Squad which should also include our national football team, and doesn't mention Brexit. But it is still sufficiently up to date to be very funny.)

Unless you have totally missed everything which has been going on in British Society over the past year or have no sense of humour whatsoever, I strongly recommend that you watch this - I think it could bring a smile to the face even of a sacked cabinet minister, moderate Labour MP or a hardened "Remainer."
