Lily Allen has declared herself a “red girl” in a tuneful message to the Coalition in a newly released demo.
The track “I Was Born in the 80s” was released on Monday with several other songs for “lols”, according to the singer on Twitter.
Opening with background noise from what sounds like a protest, the political note is set from the off and the song takes swings at austerity measures, election losses and relationships exposed by the Leveson Inquiry.
“Few things been happening lately – Mr Cameron, please debate me. It’s all gone a bit Scargill,” Allen sings.
“Don’t forget to take your friends with you, I’m a red girl.”
Allen, who told the Times she would vote for Gordon Brown in 2009, makes things a little more explicit with the chorus.
It goes: “Sick of this, sick of this, go f**k your mum. Sick of this Coalition, what you done?”
The Sheezus singer, 29, goes on to sing about “better days around the corner”, adding “we need a change”.
Although the song was one of what the artist billed as “old demos” on Twitter, the song seems to make references to the recent local and European election results, as well as next year’s general election.
Allen sings: “I’m speaking for the UK now, just clear your desk and go away now. Must know you look stupid, aren’t you losing seats now to Ukip?
“You’re supposed to be our protector – what about the whole public sector? Cover up them cuts, look rational - know all about you and News International.”
Allen, who has two children, previously criticised the Prime Minister over his reaction to Gary Barlow’s alleged tax-dodging.

1/6 Lily Allen vs Katy Perry
This all kicked off when Perry described herself as a ‘fatter version of Amy Winehouse and the skinnier version of Lily Allen’. Justifiably, Allen retaliated on Capital FM, slamming Perry’s song lyrics as ‘crass’ and criticising her for not writing her own music.
2/6 Lily Allen vs Cheryl Cole
Allen tweeted that ’40 per cent of Girls Aloud will have been charged with assault’ after Sarah Harding was involved in a row with her boyfriend. Allen was of course alluding to Cole’s conviction for assaulting a club toilet attendant in 2003. Cole kept hushed on the matter but unfollowed Allen shortly afterwards – subtle.
3/6 Lily Allen vs Fearne Cotton
Cotton accused Allen of snubbing her at the Brit Awards 2014, telling Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw that she had been “blanked five times in a row and looked through like a pane of glass”. But Allen was having none of that, taking to Twitter to refute Cotton’s claims: ‘I did not blank you, that is simply not true, I didn’t see you or your husband.’
4/6 Lily Allen vs Katie Hopkins
Hopkins slagged Allen off for having a famous father and putting on weight when pregnant. Cue the ‘Not Fair’ singer snapping back: ‘Yes, after tragically losing a child so late into my pregnancy I may have gained a few pounds, I am one of many that find comfort in food. I wasn’t exercising next time because I didn’t want to take any risks and, funnily enough, the survival of my children felt more important than being thin.” You tell her, Lily.
5/6 Lily Allen vs Perez Hilton
These two have a long history of Twitter spats stretching right back to 2009 when the singer called the blogger a “parasite” and “cheap-ass wh**e”. Later, Hilton posted a photo of Allen with the caption ‘Lily Allen + motherhood = bad idea’. Since then Allen has called him a “woman-hating retard’ and an ‘evil b*****d’.
6/6 Lily Allen vs Courtney Love
Allen posted an unflattering photo of Love on Twitter, sparking the latter to embark on a rampage of equally unideal pictures! Love’s rant included such descriptions of Allen as ‘ugly as hell’, ‘baby brat nonsense’ and an ‘insanely deluded irrelevant friendless child’.
