THE BUDGET SONG: HOW COME WE ARE IN THE RED NOT THE BLACK?

Newfoundlander's are a humorous lot. We like to poke fun, torment and tease. From local concerts to This Hour Has Twenty -Two Minutes and the Annual Rising Tide production, we celebrate our culture and politics with wit and satire.

Another avenue for political expression has been in the form of local music. Simani's Double Daylight Savings Time , the Soirees  Seven Spanish Trawlers and ,s Meech Lake Breakdown are a couple examples of using songs and wit as a popular way of expressing opinions on politics.

Someone forwarded me a song that has become a local internet sensation over the past week. While I do not endorse the content, Jimijojo's - The Budget Song is an expression of how Premier Dunderdale has lost credibility as a political leader.

It speaks to the questions and discontent echoed across the province.
