Queen Elizabeth will probably not be amused with this upcoming song for her Platinum Jubilee

If you’re a regular follower of the insane British practice of trying to have the number one single at Christmas, you’ll have run across The Kunts, a group that came close but failed in this race not once but twice. Their songs were “Boris Johnson Is A Fucking Cunt” and “Boris Johnson Is Still A Fucking Cunt.” Unfortunately, both stalled at number five.

But the band sees a new opportunity with Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee as she commemorates 70 years on the throne. Come May 27, The Kunts will release “Prince Andrew Is A Sweaty Nonce.” I quote from the band:

“[The song] is intended to re-open the conversation around [The Queen’s] son Prince Andrew’s conduct at this time when the establishment appear to want it swept under the carpet. Particularly the Prince’s friendship with convicted paedophile and sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, and his cloak-and-dagger out-of-court settlement of the alleged historic sexual assault civil case brought about by Virginia Giuffre”.

A lyric snippet? Sure. “The grand old Duke of York/He said he didn’t sweat/So why did he pay twelve million quid/To a girl he’d never met?”
