A confused man from Plymouth made several attempts to buy ‘The Corbyn Reshuffle’ on iTunes, it has been revealed.
On the day that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn reshuffled his shadow cabinet, Jerry Flounders believed the media coverage referred to a new rock and roll song.
Mr Flounders made several calls to the iTunes customer service hotline after failing to find ‘The Corbyn Reshuffle’ online, and became irate when fed up iTunes representatives threatened to call the police.
Mr Flounders said: “I’m a big fan of the Rolling Stones, and my favourite song is the Harlem Shuffle. So when I saw the Corbyn Reshuffle plastered all over the papers I got excited.
“I just assumed it would be a catchy soft rock anthem with similarities to a Stones number. I’m always on the lookout for new music, and this seemed like something I’d like.
“I asked the people at Apple if they had the song for sale, but they just didn’t know what I was talking about. One young chap searched three or four times for me, but he got annoyed when I asked him to try different variations of the spelling.
“I wasn’t trying to be a pain, so there was absolutely no need for the police to be called. I’m out on bail now.
“This whole affair hasn’t put me off building my music collection though. Just today, I saw that a new song from Satanic Islam is out. I’m assuming he’s a relative of Cat Stevens. I can’t wait.”
