A Musical Interlude

Towards the end of our picket shift today we had a surprise visit from the Solidarity Notes Labour Choir. This group of singers has apparently been meeting to practice once a week, and is very good! Harmonies and political satire abounded. It's amazing what a few songs can do to boost morale!

I've posted the words to one of their songs, "Wobbly Doxology" in the coment section. Just click on "comments" to read it. Click on the photos to enlarge them.

excerpts from Wobbly Doxology
words by members of the Solidarity Notes Labour Choir

...Praise Gordon Campbell Superman,
He bends the truth in his bare hand,
And then when he takes off his suit,
You see the Fraser Institute...

Praise Gordon Campbell drunken sot,
He looks so cute in his mug shot,
He said he'd lead with moral truth,
That's ten parts gin, one part vermouth...

Praise labour minister Dejong,
Who thought he'd take the teachers on,
He'll learn what school kids learn each day,
That teachers mean just what they say.

Praise Shirley Bond whose nervous smile,
Helps keep her in complete denial,
"Schools are essential," so she'll say,
But then she takes their funds away.
