 ramblings and things

Triple Lock

The economy is in a sorry state
Thanks to COVID and BREXIT
And we need to find a way
To set about and fix it.
The North doesn't matter
So what we might do
Is dump the Northern link
Of the controversial HS2.

It also seems the pensioners
In a manner quite absurd
Seemed to think the Government
Were bound to keep their word.
Keep The Pension Triple Lock!
Sadly that would cost too much
So  the way things are today
We'll just  kick it into touch.

We could have a fair tax system
The same rate whatever the source
But thats not the type of action
The rich and greedy would endorse.
So we'll again penalise the workers
Which will just serve them right
They're all too downtrodden now
To put up an objection and fight.

Starmer's sitting in the wings
And we really must confess
It would be good if he won
And has to sort out our mess.
We are the the Tory Party and
Having bled the Country dry
We know in our minds when
It's time to say goodbye.

We'll move our funds offshore
And it's sad but we must
Tighten up the effectiveness
Of our family income trust.
Starmer won't help the poor
So It won't be too long before
The electorate kick him out and
We'll be  back in power once more.
