Cassetteboy gives the Tories a hip-hop local election remix
Boris Johnson's 'partygate' scandal gets an explicit Cassetteboy RATM remix

Cassetteboy are best known for their hilariously accurate mashups using various clips to curate songs. Following the success of their savage Partygate remix, they've now turned their attention to the upcoming local elections.

The viral two-minute mix uses snippets from Boris Johnson, Rishi Sunak, Jacob Rees-Mogg, and Priti Patel, mocking them with their own words.

The hysterical song uses the backing track of Eminem's Without Me, opening with an edit of the prime minister saying: "According to the polls, I should really be on the dole."

It then pokes fun at the Tories' approach to the cost of living crisis and their leisurely activities like watching porn in the House of Commons (well, one of them anyway).

It (fittingly) concludes with: "We are the party of lies."
