Fuck the Tories by John SpiersPlease share and record your own version and use the hashtag #FuckTheTories to share it. Play it in sessions and tell people what it's called.For years I thought that political music was the sole preserve of songwriters and that as an instrumental musician I couldn't really do much ... until I wrote this one! As a tune it fits the bill nicely, it looks harmless enough until you try to play it and you find out it's a complete bastard. I originally imagined it as a hornpipe but imagine my delight to discover that it is far more like one of the French-Canadian tunes known as "crooked reels"!If you're lucky enough never to have discovered the Tories ... they are the Conservative party of the UK who have been systematically destroying my country since 2010 through cuts in public spending and dismantling and selling off public assets which we all value and rely on while telling us they're not doing it. All that time the rich got richer and the poor got poorer - something which has brought many in our proud country to their knees.Last summer the Tories caved in to a protest political party with far-right tendencies called UKIP that was so small that they only had one member of parliament and held a knee-jerk referendum which led to the wholly uninformed and financially desperate UK electorate voting for the famous Brexit which is now ruining the country yet further and these Tories don't seem to have any coherent plan about how to deal with it!Please excuse my use of the Anglo-Saxon vernacular in the title ... it has led to some people accusing me of being spiteful, aggressive, hate-inciting and abusive which I wholeheartedly am not ... The words vulgar and unmannerly have also been used which is probably a fair cop! If you're looking to be offended then you probably will find a way ... "Fuck" is a word used daily by the majority of people, and it can mean so many things ... but just to avoid any confusion ... the title of this tune uses the word in the following context:Fuck [fuhk] (exclamation): Used alone or as a noun or verb in various phrases to express annoyance, contempt, or impatience.example: (on finishing a particularly unpleasant task) Fuck this for a game of soldiers, I'm going down the pub.example: (on discovering your government has lied to you for the fortieth time) Fuck the Tories, I'm going down the pub.
