It’s about time someone thanked the Tories properly – like this
The Tories have been in power one way or another since 2010. In that period, a lot of things have changed as a direct result of their policies and behaviour, so it’s about time that was properly acknowledged.
Luckily, Larry Budd and Paul Dunphy – Larry and Paul – have spotted the glaring omission and stepped in with a fitting demonstration of the country’s gratitude.
Here it is in all its glory.
“You saved us from the boring competency of serious people and brought personality back into politics, introducing some incredible characters that we’ll never forget – even if we try really hard to.”
Moving stuff. We’re sure it’ll bring a tear to many a Conservative eye.
It certainly got through to these YouTube users.
The gratitude I have for the Tories is literally indescribable…
Good to see that our noble tradition of gentle political satire is alive and well …
I love it. The soaring Elgar, rippling flag and unwaveringly awful Tories all rolled into one
Larry and Paul shared their loving tribute on Twitter/X, where it got an equally appreciative reception.
Set grandma to Do Not Disturb, kneel in the direction of Churchill's wine cellar, knit yourself a hankie out of flags, and prepare to experience the triumphal wail of a grateful nation.
