Fuckity fuck fuck fuck I HATE EXAMS

To get my mind off l'Histoire, I'm going to post some lyrics. Enjoy. This one's called I'm Finding It Hard To Be A Socialist.
I'm finding it hard to be a socialist
You won't achieve utopia when all you do is bitch about petty matters
And our relative comfort leads to apathy
We're not oppressed enough to need a revolution, so just get over it

And what would they say if they knew I went to Jilly's
With a Zionist Jew called Matthew Granger?
They'd say I'm sleeping with the enemy, it's such an irony
I won't let my politics interfere with my friendships
Stop holding ALL Jews accountable for the government of Israel
For some subscribe to yr point of view
And blood is on Britain's fingers too

I'm finding it hard to be a socialist
I support the Palestinians' cause and marched against the war - are you satisfied?
I'm finding it hard to live by yr moral codes
Please please forgive me, my chicken stock is Israeli and my best friend's pro-war

And what would they say if they knew I voted in the election
For a Zionist Jew called Matthew Granger?
They'd say I'm sleeping with the enemy, it's such an irony
I won't let my politics interfere with my friendships
Stop holding ALL Jews accountable for the government of Israel
For some subscribe to yr point of view
And blood is on Britain's fingers too

Well, don't get me wrong, I support the things you do
I hate Bush and top-up fees, the BNP too
But this socialist girl is a cynic, my heart's not in it
The government won't give a fuck about you
And you claim to support R.E.S.P.E.C.T.
Why don't you show a little for the side who don't agree?
You're no less a Marxist when you open yr mind
And maybe, just maybe, if yr argument's considered enough
You just might get some more people onto yr side

I'm finding it hard to be a socialist
It won't kill you for once to listen to some opinions that differ from yrs
Forgive me for sounding just a little bit cynical
But doesn't S.W.P. stand for Socialist Workers' Party?
It's not for bourgeois twats like us

And what would they say if they knew I'd fallen in love
With a Zionist Jew called Matthew Granger?
They'd say I'm sleeping with the enemy, it's such an irony
I won't let my politics interfere with my friendships
And anti-Semitism's no part of socialism
Nor's being a closet-minded bastard
I'll fight my battles on my own for justice and equality
And I'll think of you when I see you standing
With yr George Bush outfits and yr megaphones
And yr homemade banners and yr placards
And it might make you feel good
But it won't achieve a goddamn thing
You might as well get used to the fact that one day you'll sell out
And become what you despised
And meanwhile nothing's changed
I'm aware this could piss some people off on here, so I'll explain: it's not a diss on ALL lefties, just on the anti-Semitic, po-faced, narrow-minded thick bastards in Swizz. Although some of them are rather nice. It's also not a diss on ALL protests - big ones like the George Bush one in London are fair enough, but honestly, how the fuck is arsing around on the steps of Manchester University student union going to change things? Particularly the way Swizz do it. If the Labour Students or Jewish Society joined in, they'd tell them to fuck off. They are aggressive, rude, amateurish and closet-minded. No wonder people hate lefties so.
How 'Catatonic' Are You?!

I know a socialist. A real socialist. A socialist who was in the printer's strikes (two, in fact, but I'd rather not talk about the other one). Here's what he thinks about that sort of people.

"Before you join the Socialist Workers Party, try working for a while."
