The 34-second song – produced by composer Nick Harvey – was dubbed over a recent video of Michael Gove, Minister for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, dancing at the Conservative Party conference.

The lyrics say: “Dance if you don’t care that the fuel pumps are empty; dance if your cuts are f**king up people’s lives; dance if you don’t care about rising energy prices; dance if you’re a c**t, dance if you’re a c**t.”

The second verse adds: “Dance if your party is a cataclysmic s**t-show; dance if you’re winging it after 11 years in power; dance if more than 100,000 deaths could have been prevented; you, what a bunch of c**ts, dance if you’re a c**t.”

Mr Campbell asked who had made the music, to which Mr Harvey responded that he had, adding: “It took me about 15 minutes yesterday to write and record. Fifteen minutes well spent, I reckon.”

According to his IMDb page, the TV composer has also recently scored soundtracks for the BBC’s Secrets of the Museum documentary series, Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year, and Channel 4’s Hunted and Celebrity Hunted.

When one Twitter user suggested Mr Harvey should trademark the phrase “cataclysmic s**t-show”, he responded that he was “rather chuffed with that line”.

Another, @lord_tms, described it as a “toe-tapper” of a tune, while @MarkWollard3 suggested it should be made this year’s Christmas Number 1.

The original video of Mr Gove, dancing with Tom Tugendhat, chair of the foreign affairs committee, shows the two dancing to Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody.

Mr Gove’s latest escapade onto the dancefloor follows a video in July showing him throwing shapes in an Aberdeen nightclub, after he announced his separation from wife Sarah Vine.

He chose to make light of the video when opening his speech at the Conservative Party conference, telling the audience: “Here we are – bright lights, great atmosphere, enthusiastic young people.

“It reminds me of my last night out on the town in Aberdeen – dance like nobody’s watching they say.

“Well I did, but they were watching.”

The Tory minister continued: “I know many people have recently been asking why a middle-aged man spent more than an hour non-stop unleashing a series of wildly un-coordinated gestures in front of a bewildered audience, who were left wondering if this was some sort of bizarre attempt to go back to the ’80s.

“But enough of Keir Starmer’s conference speech.”

The song Mr Campbell has promoted on Twitter references several issues that the Government has been criticised for, including the ongoing energy crisis and the current shortage of fuel.

Both of these issues have been caused by a significant rise in the global price of natural gas, as demand has increased as economies around the world unlock from the coronavirus pandemic, the Government has previously said.

The song also referenced the approximated 137,000 deaths due to COVID-19, which some have attributed to the Government’s handling of the pandemic.

The Government has announced that there will be an independent inquiry into the handling of the pandemic, which will commence in Spring 2022.

Announcing the inquiry in May this year, Boris Johnson said: “Amid such tragedy, the State has an obligation to examine its actions as rigorously and candidly as possible, and to learn every lesson for the future.”

Though the terms of reference of the inquiry have yet to be established, experts say that it could cover the safety of healthcare premises, the availability of personal protective equipment and the suitability of Government guidance.

The Conservative Party were contacted for comment about the song.
