I'm the Trouble Starter, Pumpkin Instigator

This, from Guido Fawkes' blog, made me giggle...

Of course Little Ed couldn't have known the violence would kick off at the same time as his speech (although he must have known violence was inevitable that day). And of course, given his lack of oratory skills, he is as likely to rouse such passion in people as he is to win brother of the year. But that's what makes Guido's video even funnier.

On another note. I've never quite been able to make out one of the words in the first line.

I'm the trouble starter, ?punkin? instigator.
I'm the fear addicted, danger illustrated.

Sounds like punking to me. I looked up the lyrics using the InterSuperWeb but it has not been much help. Most sites seem to think it's "Fuckin" instead of punkin. I find that hard to believe as the single only came out in one version with no bad language warning and the album version sounds exactly the same as the single.

However, my favourite suggestion came from this site...

I'm the trouble starter, pumpkin instigator.
I'm the fear addicted, danger illustrated.

I can envisage Ed Miliband singing this version into his under utilised hair brush as he watched the footage of the trouble unfolding on his television in his bedroom that night.

If he had any honesty in him, which seems unlikely, he'd adjust one of the other verses a tad...

I'm Balls bitch you hated, tax infatuated - yeeeaaaah
I'm the cash we wasted, felt intoxicated
