 ramblings and things

Only Fools And Horses

Welcome to rip off Britain
Supposed land of the free
But ruled and controlled
By that privileged minority.

There's no money for the NHS
State Benefits are being cut
Schools are short of funds
Libraries are being shut.

It's the policy of Austerity
And if it's for the Nation's health
Why  are we subsidising
Folk of quality and wealth.

Ten K a year tax reduction
For those who didn't need it
While that band in poverty
Relies on food banks to feed it.

Tax credit to the lower paid
Subsidises Scrooge employers
While the No Win No Fee culture
Subsidises predatory lawyers.

Honourable members of both Houses
Enjoy subsidised food and drinks,
In a so called Christian society
A situation that really really stinks.

There's money for HRH's repairs,
We can't have her living in a dump,
And Millions to subsidise golf for
Visiting POTUS, Donald Trump.
Our franchised  railway are owned
By European ones, still nationalised,
So ironically they are subsidised
By ours that are now privatised.

There's majority of the poor
That consistently votes Tory;
If we didn't live and breathe it
We'd think it a fantastic story.

But, Brexit is approaching
And soon we'll be back on track
For a land of freedom and equality
When we get our country back.

From the depths of my mind
I seem to recall a little rhyme,
About fooling most of the
People for most of the time.
