Tories may have good musical taste but it seems musicians have better taste in politics

That will teach the Tories not to assume they can take what they want and use it as they will.

Two musicians have lashed back at them for using music without permission:

Pop star Florence Welch has hit out at Prime Minister Theresa May and the Tories for using one of her band’s hit songs was played at the party’s conference.

The Florence and the Machine singer has told the Conservatives to stop using her music after they used her 2008 version of Candi Staton’s ‘You Got the Love’.

She said she did not approve the use of the song and would not have permitted it if asked.

Calvin Harris also stuck the knife in after his music was used without permission.

If you get a chance, click on the tweets and have a glance at the comments from outraged Tories, once again proving that they take the prize when it comes to online abuse. And also when it comes to being sensitive little snowflakes.

    Wow! It just gets better and better. I sincerely hope the Tory Party is sued for breach of copyright. It illustrates just how little respect Tories have for anyone but their greedy, selfish selves.

    Last year they played James “She’s A Star” for May to come on stage to and the whole band objected. Sadly, cos the venue pays the PRS Licence fee, they don’t need individual permission unless they claimed the band were endorsing them or if it was being used in public or on telly.
