    If we can get people with the wherewithal to produce this why do we have to put up with such abject politicians?

    If Nick Clegg released this Lib Dem ratings would go through the roof. Best party political broadcast I have ever seen

    Uncanny – HAL 9000, the super computer from Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of 2001: A Space Odyssey sounds just like Nick Clegg grovelling to Dave Cameron

    Dear Alex & James,

    Please, please, please could you fix it for me to see this track released for download in the hopes it could become #1 in the UK charts, if nothing else than just to stick a satirical finger up at Clegg and his pitiful attempt to apologise for making the promise in the first place, instead of apologising for breaking it.

    Make it a charity single to fund students entering HE and it’ll definitely be a hit!

    Many Thanks,
    Jimm, 29 (wouldn’t have a degree if I’d had to pay as much as it costs now).

    Fantastic. Love the Autotune. Disagree with poster that said it was rushed, it is brilliant. Make it available on iTunes, it’s a great little tune and good laugh.

    As Elton once sang sorry seems to be the hardest word its pitiful that these people in power only say sorry when they are found out or in Cleggs case wants something…………..A great p..s take enjoyed it.

    Amazing! Pure Genius! Has to be released as a single (Simon Cowell or Richard Branson – are you listening?). The proceeds could all go to UK charities starved of income thanks to the incompetence of the coalition. Fantastic. Can’t get the tune out of my head.

    After having a crap day this made me belly laugh. Brilliant! Let this just be a beginning as to how foolish our politicians really are

    I agree with Moggz – The only thing that would make this certain number one better would be a backing track from cameron!!

    I didn’t know Nick Clegg was so talented. He’ll be sadly missed when he moves on to Brussells. Bless him.

    Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has allowed a spoof music video of him to be released as a single on condition the profits go to charity. ……..Fair play Nick ,now its up to us all to get it to number1 and generate much needed funds for charity

  • This is the N

    Absolutely pathetic, not remixed in a funny way at all, millions of better remixes of similar things out there that took longer than 5 seconds to make unlike this. Utter rubbish.

    Just goes to show – if you have half a mind to go into politics , then the LibDems are the party for you!

  • Parapensioner

    As all politicians are liars by profession, I wouldn’t set any great store by Nick’s ‘apology’. However I’ll give him one star for being a good sport, and allowing proceeds of this excellent piss-take go to a good cause!

    September 20, 2012 at 5:50 pm
  • keith

    well done. all politicians deserve the piss taken out of them for their wrong doings. if it was anyone else in any other profession making a gross mistake, im pretty damned sure they would have got the sack. once again well done pmsl

    At last! People like this (Alex) make life worth living.Top of the hit parade and the students’ disco favourite …and the end of politicians betraying their manifestos.
    Manifesto=a public declaration policy and aims.

    I’m pleasantly surprised this is more light hearted mockery than just the slander I was expecting when someone linked it from facebook, and if anything it’s going to do the Lib Dems good.

    Having said that, looking at the comments is depressing. In particular:

    “Jimm, 29 (wouldn’t have a degree if I’d had to pay as much as it costs now).”

    Well, Jimm, if you went to the bother of reading about the tuition fee changes before you went spouting off on this website then perhaps you’d realise that nothing about this change affects people’s ability to afford to go to uni, and actually improves the lot of the people who are worst off coming out of uni.

    Oh well, it seems most of the population is like Mr Jimm (didn’t deserve a degree anyway).

    *sigh* Politicians make an unusual change that helps everyone who needs it and they get slammed for it. They make an open apology (infinitely more unusual) and they get slammed for that as well.

    This has made my day. I am in tears of laughter. Congratulations to the editors. They have restored my faith in humanity restored.

    Sorry Pricey, but if you don’t realise that the prospect of well over twenty thousand pounds of debt would deter those who currently have very little from going into higher education then it shows you know very little about the “worst off”. It’s very easy for those from a comfortable background to talk about how long you have to pay off such debts and the low interest rates, but for someone coming from a background where nobody they know earns anything like the average wage, this is a big committment to take on. I come from a very poor family, got totally free university education, and a grant, and now earn a good wage, and am very happy to be paying some of my good luck back in higher rate tax, but if I had had to choose this level of debt up front, back when I was poor, I don’t know if I could have done it. I just don’t think it’s right, fees should be free for your first degree. His promise was the correct bit, it’s breaking it that was wrong!

  • Dedwood85


    You’ve just implicitly said most of the population doesn’t deserve a degree if they don’t agree with tuition fees. Everyone who works hard enough to pass DESERVES a degree whether they agree with fee increases or not.

    Try not to be such a fucking twat on your next comment.
