3rd May 1979, that fateful day, when Labour lost
and political consensus became history-the beginning of
deregulation and the rise of the private shareholder.
Right to buy your council house-no council housing,
no public employees-mass redundancies.
Transport, electricity, all utilities-now in the hands of
profit motivated Machiavellians-the big con!
Hedge funds, tax havens and the like all hide
the things that might cause concern-but then again,
when Joe public has been disempowered with UC
cuts and NI rises, why are we surprised to see the
government on a spending sprees-gifts for honours
and fights over who gets what taxpayer funded residence?
In my life, I’ve seen power cuts, 3 day weeks, and worn
shoes with holes on the soles. No child should go to sleep
or to school hungry-what has happened to this country?
I saw a brief reprieve when Labour governed 13 years;
as I watched the results in 2010, I felt the tears well up,
and wondered why Clegg sold his soul to be deputy PM.
Brexit-the answer to all our prayers? Say that
to students waiting for visas to study abroad,
or the workers losing their jobs as companies fold.
Food shortages and no nurses, as Europeans
go home to a place where they feel wanted.
But, hey-Jonson says, ‘We got Brexit done.’
