Global leaders are always open to a spot of spoofing, and the British government was particularly ripe for parody as various scandals dominated headlines. The main one referred to here is #Partygate, which saw Prime Minister Boris Johnson warding off scrutiny of alleged Westminster parties held during Covid lockdowns. Media outlet JOE.co.uk makes deft use of the ongoing furore with one of its trademark take-offs melding together clips of the people involved speaking at public events but putting new words into their mouths. There's a little help from US hip-hop band The Beastie Boys, too, as well as a clever cameo 'appearance' by the widely revered Queen Elizabeth II, currently celebrating 70 years on the throne. Check it out and let us know what you think of it. Great representation of JOE Public's sentiments as people died uncomforted by loved ones while politicians partied? Unnecessary lambasting of public figures who were only doing their best? Masterful techniques, needs to go viral, shows all politics for what it really is? Why can't all party political broadcasts be more like this?
