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 know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
