The David Cameron rap

Watch: Cameron's conference speech rap.

By George Eaton

The most surprising (and amusing) parts of David Cameron’s speech were undoubtedly the two rap-like sections in which he hailed the coalition’s record and attacked Labour’s. It was a thinly-veiled attempt to replicate Gordon Brown’s the “change we choose” riff from last year, but it failed to rouse the Tory faithful.

But now, courtesy of the Guardian, we can finally hear Cameron’s words set to an appropriately urban soundtrack. Now all sing along: “Police targets smashed. Immigration – capped. The third runway – stopped. Home Information Packs – dropped”
