A piece of highly appropriate poetry from Chris Wayne!


Services in the UK                                                                                                                               Are slowly being cut                                                                                                                           But Cameron and his chums                                                                                                            Just don’t give a f*ck

As though they provide the public                                                                                                     With a vital need                                                                                                                             They’re being sacrificed                                                                                                                         For the government’s own greed

The value of these services                                                                                                          Should never be ignored                                                                                                                      As they give the public                                                                                                                   Some much needed support

They save our lives, rescue us                                                                                                            Make us feel safe                                                                                                                                  They do this from their hearts                                                                                                         For very little pay

They give the country                                                                                                                            A much needed stable core                                                                                                               They help those who struggle                                                                                                              Like the vulnerable and poor

But government spin                                                                                                                        And media lies                                                                                                                                       Has made the public think                                                                                                              That they are in decline

That the cuts to services                                                                                                                      Are for our benefit                                                                                                                                    But in reality they’re needed                                                                                                              By the defenseless and sick

And don’t buy this b*llocks                                                                                                                  That it’s to do with austerity                                                                                                                As since they came into power                                                                                                        They’ve borrowed more money

  1. Paul Have you deleted you twitter account? I cannot see it anymore. Unless you blocked me. In which case, which tweet in particular was problematic. I realize you do not need to give a reason, but I do value your opinion, so I would be grateful if you could let me know.

    Yours sincerely


    1. Hi Lawrence

      I don’t know what’s happened – I certainly haven’t deleted my twitter account, and neither have I blocked you. You’ve never offended me at all!
