    Its customary for the Political Parties to have their own election Theme Song/Tune. Which Brass band arrangement could accompany each parties campaign?

    As a starter, and after watching the first day of smarminess and lack of genuine introductions unfold, I came up with 'Pantomime'. Off we go.........

    Rothwell Temperance recorded Purcell's Trumpet Tune for the Liberal/SDP Alliance in the early 80's. It was played at the end of each Party Political broadcast on tv and the band played at a conference at the Barbican Centre in London.

    The election theme should be gypsies, tramps and thieves :)

    Might I be so bold as to suggest my soon to be composed contemporary work for brass band entitled " We're all a corrupt bunch of thieving public school ******** who are going to be first up against the wall come the revolution Suite in C# minor for peruvian nasal flute and band"

    Now now, Elvis, give some consideration to priorities.

    Bernaerts first, then the politicians....

    I take back my previous posts, i actually think the politicians do a fanatastic job.
    My revised choices are:

    For the Election theme - Summon the Heroes
    Gordon Brown - Rocky Theme
    David Cameron - karate kid Theme
    Nick Clegg - Banana man theme
