“Pet Shop Boys lampoon Donald Trump and Michael Gove on new song”

British synth-pop duo Pet Shop Boys have returned with a new song that makes fun of Michael Gove and Donald Trump.

Entitled Give Stupidity a Chance, the upbeat track is deeply ironic, calling for a world devoted to self-centredness and unencumbered by political correctness.

One lyric sung by Neil Tennant runs: “Intelligent people have had their say / It’s time for the foolish to show the way … We’ve had quite enough of experts and their dealings / Why face the facts when you can just feel the feelings?” This is a riff on Gove’s infamous statement ahead of the Brexit vote that “people in this country have had enough of experts”.
