bash

Here is my best explanation:

'party' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'i don't give a fig about southern' is the wordplay.
'i don't give a fig' becomes 'bah' (both are contemptuous or dismissive expressions).
'about' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'southern' becomes 's' (abbreviation).
'bah' going around 's' is 'BASH'.
