As preparations continue for the First Liverpool Festival Of Self-Parody (sorry, Beatles Day), someone has thought to ask the leaders of the main UK political parties (and Gordon Brown) what their favourite Beatles song is. For some reason.
Gordon Brown likes All My Loving, although he was taken off-guard as it's unusual for him to be asked a question which doesn't start "God, you're shit and you know it, don't you, you national-sized failure":
Of course, his real favourite should be Octopuses Garden, because it's the one where the very-effective drummer got the top job and proved to be rubbish at it.
Dave Cameron chose The Long And Winding Road, mouthing "like to Downing Street - do you see? Aren't I clever?" at the end, while Nick Clegg turned up to say "A Day In The Life", although we're not sure anyone asked him:
"The dramatic shift of gears musically leading to the powerful piano chords at the end are frighteningly effective, while the lyrics are incredibly effective by combining the mundane everyday life with the tragic death of someone in a car crash. It shows the Beatles at their edgy best."
A Day In The Life, of course, is the result of an awkward compromise, a coalition of a song. Can't think why that would appeal to him.
