O woe are we! A hundred years and more
and now we matter not? The party's what;
unelectable? But... the workers' core
persists. It's active still. Despite we cut
that old adherence to Clause IV. What next?
We've turned from waging classless socialism
to social opportunism. Who'd expect
we'd scorn the scarlet flag and cause a schism.
That's politics. Be frank, the task at hand
is get ourselves elected come what may.
Damn the doctrine. Hail to our new brand.
The road to Number 10 starts here. Today,
we'll stand for what it is that gets us votes,
and then we'll stuff it down the voters' throats.
