A Song For Thanet



With apologies to The Crystals


Ezekiel and Latchford coming down the street
They do run run run, they do run run
They've heard there's a petition that they gotta beat
They do run run run, they do run run
Yeah, it's in the Woollen Shop
Yeah, they gotta make it drop
And when they get inside
They do run run run, they do run run

Iris and the manager are having words
They don't run run run, they don't run run
They think the council's policy is for the birds
They don't run run run, they don't run run
Yeah, Sand and Rodge barge in
Yeah, they make a right old din
And when the petition drops
They do run run run, they do run run

Thom and Nick the hacks are looking quite aghast
They don't run run run, they don't run run
Sandy's misbehaviour isn't in the past
They don't run run run, they don't run run
Yeah, the standards chaps step in
Yeah, the Gruesome Twins can't win
And when it came to the crunch
They did run run run, they did run run

Surely a ward whose voters stay at home and don't vote is just as guilty of electing such people as those who actually vote for them?

Hi Eastcliff,

I feel honoured to be mentioned in your new hit song - please cut me in for a slice of the royalties so that I can donate it to a special fund for distressed journos!

Distressed by what means I'll leave you to decide.

morning ECR when are you and peter going to get together and record it I am sure it would be a best cellar well a cellar would be the best place for it. royalties could be paid to the wine merchant who restocks the cellar of the wine you will have to replace cos the sound of it will turn it to vinegar

I take it you are an Ezekiel/Latchford fan then, Don?

Mr. Latchford has revealed that he has been on holiday for 2 weeks. This would explain his absence from the Standards Board hearing....or would it?
