Think you can do better than Justin Trudeau?

We’re talking musically.

When it comes to any senior political figure in power it’s an oft-used criticism heard in bars, restaurants, offices, on golf courses, and pretty much anywhere politics get discussed: ‘I could do better than them!”

The talk around Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is no different. Just ask Pierre Poilievre.

But now, there’s another potential debate set to rage. It regards Trudeau’s operatic singing prowess.

This follows the immergence of a video showing him singing a few lines from the opening stanza of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody in a London hotel’s piano bar a few days before Queen Elizabeth II's state funeral.

Some have attacked the PM for being ‘tone deaf’ for behaving in such a way in a public place ahead of such a somber occasion.

Others, including the PM’s spokesperson, said Trudeau and a small gathering with members of the Canadian delegation came together to pay tribute to the life and service of Her Majesty.

Whatever you think of the optics, what of the actual rendition?

Trudeau is seen singing the famous lines:

Easy come, easy go, little high, little low,

Any way the wind blows doesn’t really matter me, to me.

Check out the video to see who we found to give Justin a run for his money … in Canadian dollars or UK Sterling.
