    Today, new laws came into effect legally allowing the use of copyrighted films, TV shows or music in parody works without fear of litigation, provided the parody couldn’t be confused – or compete – with the original version.

    And while few could argue that Cassetteboy‘s response to the new law competes with the originals as delivered, we’re sure you’ll agree that this mashup of speeches by the UK Prime Minister David Cameron far surpasses them in many ways. Warning: there’s some NSFW language if you hit play.
