A reworking of the Labour anthem the Internationale for all those Scottish Labour people who were acting on social media yesterday as apologists for the brutality of the Spanish state. Internationalists my arse.
The worker’s flag is deepest red,
but this song’s just a figurehead,
Cos when the people fight the state
SLab cheers for what the state dictates.
Let’s raise the bloodied batons high!
Cheer as the rubber bullets fly.
Catalans may flinch and Scot nats sneer,
Labour backs the police in riot gear.
Barcelona’s bloodied under Spanish might
while the people’s party denies the right
of the people to decide their fate
and Labour hacks cheer Rajoy’s hate.
Conference songs about solidarity
only mask the cruel reality
Scottish Labour will be the friend
of the establishment right to the end
We’re Scottish Labour and what we do
is to keep Scotland’s flag red white and blue.
We may fight like ferrets in a sack
but we’ll keep the Tories on your back.
