After a particularly ridiculous article in the Daily Mail on 3rd April 2013 about Michael Philpott and “Welfare UK” I was driven to write this song about the Daily Mail – a manual for the intolerant.

Also, after yet another ridiculous article about Ed Milliband’s Dad, here’s part 2 – “Milliband’s rebuke”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcUaTqZKei0&feature=youtu.be

The Daily Mail Song: A daily dose of hate from the Daily Mail

Lyrics:

There’s a newspaper in these fair Isles that’s called the Daily Mail,
Though news is a kind word to put in place of the lies beyond the pale.
And if you’re not pale, they’ll spin a tale,
Of immigrants coming in dressed in veils.
There’s a daily dose of hate from the Daily Mail.

Oh the Daily Mail is the right wing’s holy grail.
A racist paper trail of hate
With distorted views on the welfare state,
There’s a daily dose of hate in the Daily Mail.

Oh the Daily Mail is a holy grail for the right wing in’t UK,
It circulates to a couple of million people every day.
And if you read between the lines
You’ll find that almost all of the time,
Minorities are the source of the UK’s ails.

Oh the Daily Mail is the right wing’s holy grail.
A racist paper trail of hate
With distorted views on the welfare state.
There’s a daily dose of hate in the Daily Mail.

Oh the Daily Mail is a sad indictment of society,
Polluting minds of Middle England over cakes and tea.
If you watch Newsnight, you’ll get a fright
When you hear their readers chatting tripe,
And citing half the spite in the Mail on Sunday.

Oh the Daily Mail is the right wing’s holy grail.
A racist paper trail of hate
With distorted views on the welfare state.
There’s a daily dose of hate in the Daily Mail.

The Daily Mail has a hang up about Eastern Europeans,
Yet these fine people pay their way and fill the jobs we leave ’em.
Without immigration, this grand nation
Would be stranded in bland stagnation,
The Anglo-Franco-Saxon-Norse Great Britian.

In the Mail on April 3rd there is an article rather dotty,
Welfare UK is to blame for the actions of Philpotty.
But the welfare state would be less at stake,
If the top percent shared a slice of cake,
And the Daily Mail is a fat cat brand of folly.

Oh the Daily Mail is the right wing’s holy grail.
A racist paper trail of hate
With distorted views on the welfare state.
There’s a daily dose of hate in the Daily Mail.
