It obviously caused quite a stir and the Prime Minister never admitted to saying the words. Instead, he cryptically responded to the press, "Was it the nature of your thoughts, gentlemen, when you say fuddle duddle or something like that? God, you guys!"
The cultural response was almost immediate.
One was released by GRT records and appeared to include members of the newly forming band, Dr. Music ...under the novelty name "House Of Commons"!!!!!!
Anybody remember the song?

I haven't had the chance to hear the song since 1971...
You Tube has only the FLIP side of the single on line for some strange reason.
Maybe because it was a dud novelty hit?
there was this OTHER missing CanCon hit: Do The Footsie, 1969, by THE CHOSEN FEW.
(It was later covered in 1975 by a British group calling themselves: 'Wiggam's Chosen Few').
