Not Like Us

They're not like us
They spit in the street
They fish for the plate
And you can't tell what they're saying
They're not like us.

They're not the same as you and me
Their food is bland
They shout in public
They have mobile phones and expensive-looking trainers
Not like us.

Tell Me Jeremy

Tell me Jeremy, with lives at stake
Aren't doctors safer when they're awake?
Would you have surgery from a doc
Who's been on duty round the clock?

Tell me Jeremy, tell me why
You seem to think that you can buy
Our doctors' lives, and their assent
For pieces of silver, a few per cent?

Rachman's Heirs

In January 2016, Conservative MPs voted down a Labour MP's Bill that would require landlords to ensure that homes to rent were fit for human habitation. Yes, really.

How very dare these bloody reds
Propose a law that homes I let
Be fit for folk to lay their heads
They should be glad of what they get
So come and view my latest rental -
Compact, bijou, great location
Fit for nowt but very central
Fit for human habitation

Sandbags and Gladrags

These are the banks that need to be propped up
These the square miles that could do with some bailing out
This is the high street where floating stocks are mopped up
Defences that fail when they're cut and left flailing about
Those on the ground floor as always will suffer the worst
While one level up they look downwards in trepidation
But those in the penthouse were safe when the banks were burst

London

Follow the links for a shocking story of a Stalinist anti-semitic purge.

London is loyal, London's a comrade
London has toiled through many a bomb raid
London's a leader, London's a fighter
London is feeling the noose closing tighter

Those in London's seats of power
Are sending suspects to the tower
London's former champions sense
There's too much foreign influence
