image for Karl Marx, HG Wells, Michael Foot, Martin Luther King, Gandhi and Michael Jackson Scream "Fight The Bedroom Tax" From Beyond the Grave
Great leader of the past have their say from beyond the grave.

A top London Clairvoyant has tonight revealed that she has been visited by angry political figures from the past who are all horrified by the implementation of the bedroom tax.

She says the first to contact her was the former Labour Leader Michael Foot. She said he began his psychic contact with her by calmly expressing his disappointment at the labour party's lack of enthusiasm for fighting the bedroom tax.

The clairvoyant said that he continued on this subject for five minutes until he was angrily interrupted by the voice of HG Wells the socialist science fiction writer. He explained that he had had to butt into the conversation to tell her he had a message for all the labour party members who still believed in hope. He said "Get off the apathy bus, get the red flag flying again, and tell George Osbourne to shove his bedroom tax in one of his 29 spare bedrooms in his second home in leafy god knows where"

The clairvoyant said she was then contacted by a riot of angry socialist and liberal leaders from the past who cared about the small person. These leader included Karl Marx, Kier Hardy, Lloyd George, Martin Luther King, Ghandi and Michael Jackson and they were all saying the same thing, but in different languages and accents. They were united in their plea, and they jointly declared.

"We haven't evolved this far to make life harder for the downtrodden. Make the world a better place and call for the repeal of this law, now. It will help you sleep better on cold nights knowing that no one is out there in the streets freezing to death because of a stupid, insensitive, nasty Tory dictat that none of you voted for and only psychopaths would want to see enforced."

Michael Jackson added a melody and baseline to it, and will be releasing it via a ghost composer on itunes.

The clairvoyant said she agrees with them and is looking forward to their next visit. Next week they're going back round to her house to tell her what they think about the state of NHS...and they said they would be bringing Jim Henson from the Muppets.
