Don’t Mention B…..
The price of oil is through the roof
It’s hitting everything.
It’s due to the Ukraine war
That’s what the papers sing.
The cost of electricity out of control!
It’s threatening our lives!
To heat or eat is the question
Without it nothing thrives.
It’s all because of covid
And the nastiness of Putin.
He’s holding us to ransom
With his shooting and looting.
But the fields are full of rotting crops
The shelves are getting empty.
The markets are drying up
This used to be the land of plenty.
We’re loaded down with red tape
With queues on every highway
Waiting for their customs checks
And tariffs they now have to pay.
The only people doing well
Are the Tory billionaires.
They are making super profits
From what really isn’t theirs.
The energy companies and oil giants
Are raking in the mega buck.
But huddled in our houses
It’s us that’s out of luck.
Global forces are to blame
The Tory press does shout.
But when we point to the mega-rich
We don’t know what it’s about!
It’s global forces, covid and the war,
Nothing to do with exploitation.
Now we’ve got a million food banks
Spreading across the nation.
The rich have never been richer
And the poor are against the wall.
While Tory politicians
Lie about it all.
If we ask for fairer pay
To keep up with inflation.
It’s always us that is to blame
For beggaring the nation.
Yes the bonuses can be counted
In the multimillions.
But it’s not the bosses who are to blame
It’s us who are the villains.
The GDP is down four points.
Firms are fleeing the nation.
There’s a great shortage of labour
That’s causing this stagnation.
It’s a global phenomenon
The media assures us.
Nothing to do with the EU
Or the side of any bus.
Where were all those trade deals?
The uplands that were so sunny?
Where is that dividend?
The promised land of milk and honey?
We were promised prosperity
And a nation’s restorer.
They talked of ‘Project Fear’
But now we’re all the poorer.
As other countries forge ahead,
With signs of further growth,
We’re left far behind
In the land of the Tory sloth.
We now have great long queues
Checks and extra cost.
Companies are fleeing
From the economic holocaust.
We used to have cooperation
Now we’ve competition.
Reinventing every wheel
Is a costly proposition.
We made this rules
And signed the deal,
But now we want break it
As if it wasn’t real.
We’ve wrested back control
And given it to the greedy.
Now we live in project fear
And everyone is needy.
Only Rees-Mogg and his chums
Have profited from this exit.
The country is in a state
But we can’t mention B……
Opher – 5.8.2022
Yes, of course, we have been hit by covid and then the Ukraine war, but they are not the only things to wash up on this shore.
The Tory media are too afraid to mention the devastating effects of this extreme Tory Brexit.
We threw away our freedoms to travel and trade and now we’re complaining about the bed that we have made.
We could travel, work, trade and study quite freely. We shared major projects, shared information and cooperated on terrorism and global trade. Now we’re on our own.
We had access to the biggest economic market without any restrictions. We threw it away.
Business is drowning in red-tape. We have border checks. We have tariffs, extra costs and delays. Nothing is easy.
We were promised great new trade deals – all pie in the sky lies.
We were promised great new opportunities – more lies.
We were told it was oven-ready and a great deal. It was a shoddy extreme pile of shit that has cost us many tens of billions and reduced our GDP by 4% a year.
So much for the lie on the side of that bus.
When people talked of these delays, checks, extra costs and long queues we were told it was Project Fear.
When people talked of the billions needed to reproduce the work done in collaboration it was labelled Project Fear.
When people talked of the loss of labour and the effects on farms, catering, hospitals and care….. it was called Project Fear.
When people said that it would cost us enormous sums for generations to come it was labelled Project Fear.
People like Rees-Mogg made millions out of Brexit. The rest of us are a lot poorer.
We were told a pack of lies. Covid and Ukraine are bad enough. When you add Brexit into the mix it’s a disaster.
But then nobody in this Tory media is allowed to mention BREXIT!!
