They say “Cut Back”, we say…

We say...(thanks to the photographer)

It seemed like it had come from somewhere else. And then I came upon it. Camden Unison. The excellent leader of that branch, George Binette, had his theme tune repeated by thousands of students on Wednesday. I don’t know who came up with it first – it’s probably ancient – but I certainly know where I first heard it – the steps of Camden Town Hall.

It goes something like this:

They say cut back:

WE SAY FIGHT BACK!

They say cut back:

WE SAY FIGHT BACK!

Cut back!

FIGHT BACK!

Cut back!

FIGHT BACK!

Cut, cut, cut back!

FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT BACK!

It did get subverted, however. I won’t put it in text: heaven knows what WordPress would do. But see the photo, right.

The one my voice really got hoarse on, however, was this – simple but effective: Nick Clegg: Shame on you! Shame on you for turning blue!

And I did have admiration for this one due to its length and complicated rhythm:

David Cameron: get out! We know what you’re all about!

Cuts! Job losses! Money for the bosses!
