It’s the conference season in Britain. According to the Guardian, audio specialist Cassetteboy has rearranged cuts from David Cameron’s Conservative conference speeches to Eminem’s 2002 track Lose Yourself.

Cameron can be heard rhyming “I’m hardcore and I know the score” with “I am disgusted by the poor” followed by “I’ve made sure we’re ready for class war.”

Some have labelled Wednesday’s Cameron speech as his best speech as prime minister, others believe Cassetteboy’s take is more fitting.

The Conservatives slogan going into their election early next year is “Securing a better future” – it’s not sure yet whether they will run as TeamCameron. At least they won’t be sued and nor will Cassetteboy – the video was released on the day it became legal to produce parody videos,

    That was brilliant cassetteboy
    Would love to see a John Key equivalent

    If people listen carefully, the slogan will really sound like “Securing a bitter future”.

    And here is David Cameron tweeting to John Key following the election night results:

    “I’ve just spoken to my friend @johnkeypm of New Zealand. I congratulated him on a big election win on the back of a great economic plan.”

    If you really want to hear about Cameron actually following Key then listen to this interview that Kathryn Ryan did with UK correspondent Jon Dennis this morning…

    Thank you. That was brilliant, a great parody. So sad however, that it’s the truth of the Cons vision for Britain.

    I don’t know why Eminem is so precious about music that sounds vaguely familiar to his song. After all, there is an amazing similarity between “Lose yourself” and and Kashmir by Led Zeppelin.
