The first four verses of this song were written in January 1997 when Princess Diana was making waves in Angola and the Conservative government was becoming very uncomfortable. One Conservative MP called her a "Loose Cannon". On the morning of Princess Diana's tragic death Ann Lesley of the Daily Mail, completely misunderstanding the mood of the country (as her beloved Conservative Party had also done a few months earlier), said on television news "Those who court the Devil, find the Devil always wins". I was, to say the very least, horrified at such uncaring crassness but found that her comments rounded off very nicely a song which might otherwise have become redundant . I now sing this song directly after the poem "Who killed Princess Di?"
