JOE Spoof Video: Johnson, Dick and Rees-Mogg as the Beastie Boys

I realise many of you are heartily sick and tired of hearing about Johnson and his, what, 18-odd parties, and feel that they’re a distraction from the real issues. And honestly, I couldn’t agree more. Johnson’s cavalier flouting of the Covid rules is indeed an insult to everyone else who kept to them, despite the enormous hardship and grief they may have caused them. And it clearly shows how the Old Etonian buffoon really does believe that it’s one rule for him, and another for the plebs.

But this is just the insult. The real issues are the deep injuries he’s inflicted on the people of this fair country, and those of his wretched Tory predecessors before him. They are the deep cuts to public services and especially the further attacks on the welfare state. The wage freezes, which mean that millions of people are now facing a choice between heating their homes or eating. The work capability tests and the benefit sanctions that are still being used to throw needy people off benefits. The privatisation of the NHS and the destruction of Britain’s economy, industry and agriculture by Brexit. This latter has been for the benefit of Bojob’s chums in the financial sector, particularly Jacob Rees-Mogg, who moved his financial interests to Eire so he could go on trading with the EU. This was when he was loudly touting how wonderful Brexit would be to the rest of us. These are the policies that should be bringing down the government, but unfortunately aren’t.

But at least some of the satirists out there on YouTube are giving us a good laugh at the Tories’ expense. Politics JOE has put up this video portraying Johnson, Rees-Mogg and Dick as the ’80s pop band, the Beastie Boys, singing their classic, ‘You Gotta Fight For Your Right to Party!’ And it’s hilarious. One little gem is when Rees-Mogg is shown leering over a porno mag called Toffs Only, which portrays an Edwardian lady slightly raising her dress above her ankle.

At the time, I didn’t think much of the Beastie Boys. I thought they were morons, but I’ve been told since then that they were and are very left-wing, giving money to immigrant groups and the underprivileged. Which makes them far better than the clowns we have in government. So here’s the video – enjoy!

    Seems a long time ago now since that song was released and the Beastie Boys were a hit. Boris would have been in his early 20s, probably still at Oxford. The passage of time makes me think of another song; “Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think, Enjoy yourself while you’re still in the pink…”

      Yes, it does seem so long ago! I don’t remember the song ‘Enjoy Yourself’, but it does remind me of a custom of the ancient Egyptians. According to Herodotus, at their feasts they used to stand over a model of a mummy and say, ‘Eat, drink and be merry, for when you die, such will you be.’ Sorry to sound morbid like this – must be Johnson!

        The Specials did a cover of Enjoy Yourself and so did Prince Buster, both Ska versions. Original was someone back in the 1940s.

        Not that I’m encouraging or condoning Boris & chums’ irresponsible and treacherous behaviour in any way, but…

        Always great to hear the Specials – thanks Trev!
