The Beat's Stand Down Margaret

When The Beat / English Beat released the song Stand Down Margaret it was a call to get rid of then Prime Minister Maggie Thatcher, the neo-con queen of the '80s. In light of the upcoming elections, and the end of last week's Neo-Con Wankfest '04 in NYC this song's opening salvos still ring true - you just need to change the name of the leader. "I see no joy, I see only sorrow, I see no chance of your bright new tomorrow, So stand down Margaret ( or "W") stand down please...". A lovely bit of ska.
