Lies

Lies

All false.

                Just a front.

                                Actions of a lazy grunt.

Every word

                That goes by;

                                Every deed – a lie.

They never intend

                To sort things out

                                They don’t care.

Smugly grasping,

                Arrogantly pocketing,

                                Spouting that they’ll make things fair.

Empty words,

                In soundbites,

                                Designed to deceive.

Delivered

                With feigned concern

                                To make us believe.

Part of

                A system that exploits

                                The poor.

They design it

                So that we

                                Get no more.

The rich

                Get richer

                                While the poor starve.

If they had

                Their way

                                They’d cut that in half.

All the promises,

                Glibly delivered,

                                Are nowt but lies

They talk

                About levelling up

                                While robbing us blind.

Unpick

                Their lies

                                And what do you find?

Lies! Lies! Lies!

Opher – 25.6.2022

During these past twelve years of austerity the wealthy have increased their wealth enormously. Huge multi-million contracts have been handed out willy-nilly. Massive salaries have been given freely to ‘the right people’. Huge multimillion bonuses have been given to those at the top. Many Tory MPs are pocketing huge sums for lobbying, second jobs, telling secrets, or dividends. Huge sums are being deposited tax-free abroad.

Those at the bottom are systematically blamed. We have to have pay freezes in order to save the economy.

We are promised sunny uplands, Brexit dividends, levelling up.

We receive tax hikes, massive inflation, a cost of living crisis, energy bills through the roof, petrol prices rocketing and wage cuts.

Power companies and oil companies are creaming off incredible profits.

Aren’t you as fed up with these lies as I am??

Oven-ready, world-beating lies!!

Oven-ready, world-beating lies!!

What the world needs now ….. Is surely not another dose of conspiracy-spreading, lying, fascist conmen??

No sooner have we got rid of Bolsonaro than another fascist climate change denier appears on the horizon. What is wrong with people?

We need to start putting people, living creatures and the planet above profit!! Greed is killing us!!

Here’s to the truth

Here’s to the truth

Here’s to the truth!

                Sacrificed for power!

                                Deliberately undermined

to create Trump’s finest hour!

A populist ploy

                To bring the experts down.

                                Now people believe

the lies of a clown.

Bleating fake news,

                pumping propaganda;

                                deploying racist lies

to make a fool even grander.

Who needs evidence

                when you have the word of Trump?

                                Elections stolen

to re-elect a chump!

Piling democracy

                on the raging fire.

                                Flames consume truth

on equality’s funeral pyre.

Are people that stupid that they can’t see they are being played?? So it seems.

All across the world the grubby fascist populist politicians play from the same play book. They deliberately undermine the truth, promote racism and xenophobia, drum up fear for jobs, blame scapegoats, highlight threats and promise the earth.

Once in office they set about creating a totalitarian state, stifling the opposition, controlling the media, introducing corruption and sleaze and lining their nests. They oppress, suppress and bask in their power.

They lie, cheat and use violence and fear to control.

Populists thrive on fear, division and hatred.

They are all, to one degree or another, tainted with the same totalitarian brush:

Johnson, Bolsonaro, Modi, Oban, Trump, Erdogan, Putin, Jinping, Le Pen, Meloni, Jong-un, Netanayuh.

When will we ever learn? When will we ever learn?

Why is Trump not in jail??

I watch this painful process in disbelief.

Mafia connections?

Dodgy business deals?

Russian connections?

The incitement to the storming of the Capitol?

The tax evasion?

The lies?

The destroying of various dossiers with information of his wrongdoings?

The storage of top secret documents in his home in insecure storage?

The taking home of incredibly secret documents putting countries at risk?

The attempt to pressure officials to steal an election?

Surely any one of these is sufficient to lock him away forever?

What is it?

The threat of civil war?

The Land of Misinformation

The Land of Misinformation

In the land of misinformation

                The populist holds sway,

Pumping out his mischief

                Each and every day.

Sowing the seeds of discord,

                Dispensing fake news,

Seeking to undermine

                To confound and confuse.

In the land of misinformation

                Nobody knows what to believe.

The propaganda machine

                Is designed to deceive.

Undermining the scientists,

                Treating the experts as fools,

Using lies and promises

                And breaking all the rules.

In the land of misinformation

                The people are easily fooled.

They do as they are directed

                By the hand that is bejewelled.

Under the spell of spin doctors,

                Manipulated and confused,

The media tells us what to believe

Offers that can’t be refused!

Opher 6.8.2021

As the Express, Mail and Sun dictate the political climate, the people are easily manipulated.

Trump-lite has them in a trance, hypnotised by lies.

He’s such a jolly chappie; he couldn’t possibly be a conniving, evil twat – could he?

The Success of Tory Propaganda!

The Tory Party represent the top 5% yet they con 32% of the population into believing that they represent them

Throughout these last twelve years of Tory rule, the rich have become much richer while the rest of us have suffered huge austerity cuts and public services have been devastated.

The constant stream of Tory propaganda from The Mail, The Express, The Sun, The Telegraph, The Times and even the BBC has poisoned minds.

Are we really that gullible??

Empty Words

Empty Words

Looking for loopholes,

                False promises,

                                Empty words.

We are watching you.

The young will not forgive.

                They will write your history.

Their words will be as harsh as the weather.

We are watching you.

Not enough wood for the pyres.

                Not enough oxygen for the lungs.

Not enough understanding of the need.

We are watching you!!

We are watching you!!

We are watching you!!

Opher 23.4.2021

The politicians lie about the way they love and cherish the environment when all the time the only things they are cherishing is power and the size of their bank deposits!!

All over the world nature is threatened.

It’s time everyone came together to put a stop to this massacre!!

We are watching you!!

History will remember who it was who raped the planet!

The Tory Goebbels Propaganda Machine. Keep telling a lie often enough and people will begin to believe it’s true.

This is a classic bit of Right-wing propaganda!

Gave who freedom??

In actual fact the only people who got more freedom out of Brexit were the corporations and wealthy magnates. They got leave to exploit us. They avoided the EU clampdown on stashing money in tax havens. They had markets open to exploit.

As for us:

We lost the right to travel freely through Europe

We gained the right to pay more for our goods

We gained the right to wait longer

We gained the right to fill in more red tape

We lost the right to work in Europe

We lost the right to study in Europe

We lost the right to have cheaper labour for restaurants, vegetable picking, lorry driving, nursing, caring etc etc – so all our prices go up.

We gained the right to have cheaper labour coming in from Africa and India rather than Europe.

We lost the right to decent environmental protection

We lost the right to our workers’ rights – protecting holiday pay, work conditions, pay, sickness etc.

The reality is that Brexit has already cost us £130 billion (more than we ever paid into the EU), it has ruined our trade – exports and imports are well down, is currently costing us a staggering 4% of our GDP, is strangling us in red tape and threatening to break up the United Kingdom.

We are now in a cost of living crisis with a diving economy.

Thanks Boris – you complete div!

If this is what you call FREEDOM!!!! To allow a bunch of selfish, greedy Bullingdon boys to rip us off!!
