Laura Kuennsbjork has a new single out… sort of.
Twitter jokers TheIainDuncanSmiths have come up with a new rendition of Icelandic pop star Bjork’s 1995 classic It’s Oh So Quiet featuring BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg skipping over some newsworthy topics.

The video sees Kuennsbjork take a wander through town, while she ignores serious news in favour of panning lefties and sucking up to the Tory government:
That should be the first single off the Album! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 the poetic ethic is stunning!

Kuenssberg is, in the opinion of some, rather more generous with those in power than she is with the political left:
I’m going to put on replay several times today , thank you for putting this up, LK will be more dismayed at this than all the other tweets calling her a propagandist for the tories I love it pic.twitter.com/njk21cx6F7

TheIainDuncanSmiths are a satirical outfit whose past hits include Message in a Throttle, dedicated to courageous Bristol constabulary, and the epic Corbzy, a cover of grime artist Stormzy’s timeless sarf Larndarn banger Shut Up.
In the past, Kuennsberg has incorrectly claimed that a Labour activist hit a Tory staffer, been accused of defending controversial Tory advisor Dominic Cummings, and been accused of lying about changes in government coronavirus policy.

We need your help ...
The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.
Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.
We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
