This is the Tory Party – A callous bunch of self-serving corrupt criminal incompetents. Has British politics ever sunk lower??

Corrupt, callous, criminal liars.

Poetry – Not in May

Not in May

May is not for May,

May is for June.

Come the summer

She changes her tune.

Ineptitude, incompetence

And deceit.

Lying through

Her very teeth.

A one nation party

Who hammers the poor?

As austerity bites,

Incomes go through the floor.

Arrogance and elitism

Are bred into the blood,

As they trample the rest

Of us into the mud.

The Tories created the problem

And helped it along,

With belligerence and stubbornness

They got it all wrong.

Now we’re wallowing in a

Right Tory mess.

Promising us nothing

And giving us less!

Once again I have to listen to some female Tory Prime Minister telling her lies.

She loves the country – which country? Which people does she include in the ‘one nation’?

She’s been working for us all??? Really???

Certainly she’s not been working for most of us – not the poor who she’s been hammering throughout her tenure. Not the public servants, the nurses, teachers, doctors, police, army, social workers, youth workers, librarians, carers and council workers who she has robbed. Not the immigrants who she has blamed and harried. Not the ones out of work who have been cut to the bone. Not the homeless out sleeping rough. Not the ones using hostels and soup kitchens. Not those waiting in A&E. Not those murdered on the streets.

So who are included into this ‘one nation’? The bankers, the business magnates, the wealthy who shove their money off-shore? The celebrities? Or is it the media chiefs who have been pushing them like mad?

One Nation – I spit!!!

Poetry – Here’s to the end of austerity

Here’s to the end of austerity

Here’s to the end of austerity.

They say we’ve had enough.

We were all in it together

But only the poor have found it tough.

They took from the schools and the NHS

But gave to the captains of industry.

The executives all got their bonuses

But there was none left for you and me.

They’ve had enough of cutting

There’s nothing left to slash.

They’ve ravaged every service

And stolen all the cash.

Police and nurses join the teachers

All trying to get by

Under the yoke of austerity;

Under its blue Tory sky.

Austerity has decimated our country

And has brought no end of tears.

I’ll be glad to see the end of this dogma

But we have to wait three more years!

I watched the Tory conference as they ripped each other apart. It was all about Brexit. You wouldn’t believe that the country was falling apart.

Mrs May’s big announcement was that austerity was coming to an end – except we’ll have to wait three years – until we get close to the next election.

Until then they’ll continue slashing school budgets, privatising the Health Service and putting the poor into low pay jobs.

We’ve got a debt to service!

But it’s OK – the wealthy deserve their tax cuts and we don’t want to block the tax avoidance schemes, do we?
