And of course Ron Shuttleworth wrote a lovely VERY right wing parody
in the mid eighties,having a go at the extremist activities during the miners strike:-

    When King Arthur ruled South Yorks
    He ruled it like a Turk
    He drove three brothers out of the union
    Because they dared to work

    The first two went below
    To make sure the roof was sound
    And the third he as the winder to bring
    His brothers from underground

And I am damned if i can remember the las verse at the moment. I will have to look it up and shove it in for all you hard line Union men to have a moan about.
