This is sold every year to people attending the Glee Club at Conference.
A couple of experts have been phoned up and duly condemned us, including Jackie Ballard who really should know better.
The Birmingham Mail spoke to John Hemming, who gave a more sensible response:
Mr Hemming said that the songs had been written many years previously and it would be wrong to remove them from the songbook now.
He said: “Charles wouldn’t have wanted that at all.
“We spoke to his family and they didn’t want the songs removed either.”
However, organisers of the event had removed lyrics to another tune, based on a Scottish folk song called the Skye Boat Song, which contained lyrics which were more offensive, Mr Hemming said.Elsewhere the inevitable "senior Liberal Democrat" is quoted everywhere as saying the Glee Club "should have been axed years ago".
And a word of advice to the equally unnamed "Lib Dem source" who has been telling journalists that "hardly anyone goes" to the Glee Club.
That is not true, as those journalists will discover if they go along. This may keep the story running longer than it otherwise would and means they are less likely to believe you when a more serious matter comes up. So it wasn't a clever thing to say, was it?
Now read Lord Bonkers' foreword to the new Liberator Songbook.
