The province of the parvenu

A mecca for the mountebank

More ringing tills than songs perhaps

These overtures which smack a bit

Of public school boys slumming it

May culminate in nothing more

"You're fond of Jungle then, PM?"

I heard you liked your bass-sound hard."

"So Tony's into ambient too?"

Can you secure the Internet?"

Think of the PRS we'll get."

"Relax, my son, you can't go wrong

If Noel writes your campaign song..."
