David Cameron's tax woes are being turned into catchy song verses online


Just when you thought people had exhausted pretty much every way of making fun of the Prime Minister's tax affairs online, they find a way to prove you wrong.

With the scandal over David Cameron's former stake in an offshore fund engulfing British politics at the moment, it seemed only natural it should have a soundtrack.

So Twitter users, true to form, tried to pen the ultimate anthem by adapting popular song lyrics to suit the occasion under the hashtag #CameronTaxSongs.

And they were quite something.

Many of the lyrical tributes made a nod to the PM's father, Ian, in whose offshore company Cameron had shares until 2010.

Then, of course, there was the more recent revelation that Cameron's mother had gifted him £200,000 following his father's death, which could potentially avoid inheritance tax.

A number of classic song titles were re-written for the better.

As luck would have it, even one of the most famous lyrics of all time fitted the mould nicely as well.

More songs should include government agencies in rhyming couplets.

We dread to think what Twitter might have in store for him next.
