1966 AND ALL THAT JAZZ
by
Peter Robinson (1966)
  From the Lancashire Evening Telegraph dated 28th March 1966, just three days before the General Election:

THE GENERAL ELECTION IS REALLY ALL A QUESTION OF RHYME AND REASONING

21 year old Colne man, Mr Peter Robinson, of Parker Street, has produced an amusing commentary on the approaching General Election which I think is well worth repeating. A monologue, written in the style of the great Stanley Holloway, it takes a light hearted and unbiased view of 1966 and all that. Mr Robinson, incidentally, is at present a student at St John's College, York.
 

You've heard of the General Election,
As happened in year '64.
When Harold became head of England,
And the Tories were shown the back door.

The Tories were quite nice about it,
They felt that they needed a rest,
They had governed the country for ages,
And given the people their best.
