Just in case you missed it, here’s our official music video for our Christmas song last year. We’re currently at 875 views and would love to make it to 1,000 – can you help? If you like it, please consider subscribing and sharing it around. We’ll be re-releasing the track for Christmas 2021… If you like it A LOT, you can download it from this link: https://tonedeftony.hearnow.com/ which will also give the link to play it on Spotify! Thanks for all your support 🙂
Well, That’s It, With LadBaby in the Running, The Pubs Are Fucked!
When LadBaby said earlier in the year they weren’t really sure about releasing a THIRD Christmas song, but then when they did their Walkers crisps deal, I KNEW they were going for a Hat trick! And now they’ve officially released it. That’s it, our effort to try and help the pubs is now sunk! We were making good ground with the resources we had, but we are now OFFICIALLY out of the running.
What can I say, we tried. Not bitter and twisted, but when NONE of the pub & hospitality trade charities would touch us, and hardly any pubs supported our campaign to help them, it’s no wonder we were dead in the water. Sadly, after 15 charity events, this is me saying goodbye to helping unfortunates, I’m suffering just as much, if not MORE than you – go fucking help yourselves for a change! That’s what I had to do when nobody was helping me out. Charity begins with realising you CAN actually get off your fat lazy arse are help yourself!
Merry, bloody Christmas!
When Pubs Are ESSENTIAL Again. What Then…?
For the record, once again, I KNOW pubs are an essential part of our culture, society, and community, even if the government doesn’t seem to think so! I’ll go further, because I don’t own or run a pub, I just want to support them and give them a voice, so I’m not afraid of losing my license or being arrested, or fined unfairly, so I’ll say PUBS ARE DOING MORE THAN THE NHS to save lives, but aren’t taxpayer-funded! I also want to say pubs have been VERY unfairly singled out as ‘enemy number one’ by the government with no scientific proof for their actions, which is why I’ve been trying to help spread the word and raise money with my Christmas song, “I Got P*$$ed with Santa Claus” by Tone Def Tony, this year. But this post isn’t about promoting the song, it’s about the future…
Hopefully… Eventually… the government will admit they massively overreacted to this virus (there have still been no access/ extra deaths based on official Office of National Statistics data compared to previous years!) and will offer a formal apology to the pub and hospitality trade, that have gone above and beyond what they should have been enforced to do to comply with ‘ridiculously biased’ rules and regulations and restrictions.
But let’s now think about a brighter future… if anyone’s bothered to read this far! The summer of 2021… Little Johnny’s local football team needs a new kit. Where do you go? The local pub to tap up the punters! The local darts team needs somewhere to practice, where do they go…? The cricket team…? Where do you go to meet your mates…? ‘Oh, I’m having a fundraiser…’ where do you go…? THE PUB!
The BIGGEST FUNDRAISERS in the country have been left out in the cold!!! Approximately £100 million every year is raised by pubs in the UK. And they have been left without any form of charity this year – it’s disgusting what the government has done to them! The government is forcing FOOD WASTE, whilst people starve! They are encouraging home-drinking and depression! There are no codes and regulations to stop people buying too much alcohol at supermarkets or stores! No food needed. It’s ridiculous!
Boris, I don’t give a shit what you don’t do with Brexit, you’re probably gonna ‘Brikit’, you’ve fucked us already, so why worry! £2 TRILLION in national debt…! Doubled in almost a year!!! You need your own Magna Carta!!!
I have to stop, because I’m so angry it’s making me very depressed!
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH PEOPLE! LOOK AT THE FACTS. LOOK AT THE EVIDENCE. THERE IS NO PANDEMIC, THERE NEVER WAS. THERE IS A NEW FLU/ CORONAVIRUS BUT IT’S NOT THE FUCKING PLAGUE…!!! IF IT WAS, THEY WOULD NEVER HAVE TRIED TO SCARE US WITH SO MANY MADE UP DEATHS… THEY WOULD HAVE PLAYED DOWN THE FIGURES!!! GET A BRAIN. GET A LIFE. STOP BEING SUCH IDIOTIC, STUPID, BRAIN-DEAD, FUCK-WIT, ROBOTS…!!!
“Shut Up Tony!” The Funniest Interview Yet.
Just when I thought I was getting used to doing radio interviews, not only are we beset with technical difficulties (their end this time, I think!) but when they think we’ve gone off air, I get shouted at. The signal’s not great, but it’s well worth listening to for the comedic value – you just can’t make this stuff up – gold dust!

BUY Our Song, It’s A Christmas ‘Cracker’!
With Christmas only 17 days away, we’re pulling out all the stops to try and expose our highly addictive charity Christmas song to as many people as possible. Buy our song and help us support those in the pub and hospitality trade survive this panic-demic!
It’s been quite an ordeal trying to spread the word, especially as we are up against so many more contenders this year, and have absolutely no backing. It hasn’t helped that even though we’re raising money for the pub and hospitality sector, EVERY SINGLE charity we’ve approached has either shunned our song or ignored us completely! It beggars belief that even the industry we are trying to help won’t even help us promote our song. Apart from a handful of publicans, we’ve had no assistance whatsoever. Gotta say I’m absolutely disgusted, but I remain hopeful.
Merry, Bloody Christmas!

£250,000 Raised To Help Save Our Great British Pubs!
Notre-Dame got way more money, and that’s just a building! Millions of tourists used to flock to the UK every year, not only to see Buckingham Palace and a glimpse of the royal family, but also to experience what a REAL, British pub is really like. Nowhere else in the world do we have anything closely resembling a British pub, and soon we might not have any in the UK.
Sadly, thanks to the the UK government, under the control and direction of Prime Minister Boris Johnson, under the premise of protecting the taxpayer-funded NHS, before any actual laws had been passed, deemed it permissible to shut one of our biggest – and most overlooked – assets right before any evidence was available that they were even a threat, let alone a contributing factor to the spread of this new (alleged – I’m disbelieving more and more every day!) coronavirus. The Treasury must be pulling their hair out trying to work out how to pay for this catastrophe! Oh no, how silly of me! WE the taxpaying business people will have to pay for it – if we still have businesses to run!!!
OBVIOUSLY £250,000 hasn’t been raised YET to bail out the great, British pubs, but wouldn’t it be marvelous, if we could raise £250,000 through the sale of our silly, Christmas song, “I Got P*$$ed with Santa Claus” by Tone Def Tony, to give something back to a great, British institution that has helped to raise BILLIONS OF POUNDS over the years for worthy causes? This is a blatant publicity stunt, but since the pubs have been seriously overlooked in the thinking of these ludicrous government-imposed restrictions, and we are just three old codgers trying to make a difference, we had to do something to try and get SOME attention!
To top that, we can’t wait to be number one, we’re giving ALL OUR DOWNLOAD SALES AND STREAMS TO HELP THE PUBS!!!
It’s actually quite a fun song that sticks in your head once you hear it, as long as you don’t mind the odd mildly rude word…

Pubs ARE An Essential Service!
I lost faith in the UK government a long, long time ago, not least of all because of what THEY have done to our country this year due to their total incompetence, and inability to man-up and confess that their handling of this situation was WRONG! Rather than their actions and policies SAVING LIVES, I believe they have been directly responsible for the death of thousands of my kinsmen with illnesses far more deadly than this flu-virus. Never in recorded history has a UK government stepped in and deliberately stopped hard working business people from earning a living, and especially hard hit have been those in the pub and hospitality industries, who were already struggling to survive before this nonsense!
What THEY deem to have been ‘essential’ businesses and services have been allowed to stay open and trade, but I strongly believe PUBS ARE ESSENTIAL SERVICES! Here’s why:
- Top of the list are the jobs they provide: many tens of thousands of people with limited skills and limited other possibilities can earn a decent living working in pubs – one of my first ever jobs was as a barman! Not to mention the hundreds of thousands of jobs that are created by the service industries that depend upon them: the maintenance people, suppliers, etc.
- I’m surprised the Treasury isn’t screaming at the loss of taxes from the heavy duties that are levied on the pub trade! How much tax are they losing? I mean, we’re going to have to pay for this incompetence somehow. right?
- Pubs, especially the smaller, local ones, are the hub and heart of communities.
- They are places to meet, socialise, keep up with community news, and a great safe haven for the lonely, and elderly.
- Pubs help raise money and support for good causes: approximately £100m per year!
- They are often the first to support local sports teams, and other under-funded local causes.
- Those that offer live music give opportunities to emerging artists, you’d be surprised the number of now famous musicians got their first break doing a pub gig!
I’m sure you can add to that list! It’s certainly a more substantial list than the government’s reasoning for closing tens of thousands of pubs!
“I Got P*$$ed with Santa Claus” by Tone Def Tony – the ONLY charity song raising money to help those suffering in the pub and hospitality trade this year.
