From a correspondent”
The Tory slogan or cliché
Is “Strong and Stable Mrs May”.
“Strong”? Just on the weak, I’d say.
“Why take disableds’ pay away?”
Said Kathy*. May had nought to say.
TV debate? Too “frit” to play.
And what, last April*, did she say? –
She argued not to “leave” but “stay”:
Irish and Scots could break away;
The bankers could all go away;
Trade deals? Could be worse, O.K?
In single market? Costs to pay.
On Brexit it is all hearsay:
Why put your trust in Mrs May?
Do YOU know what she’ll give away?
Tories are split, in disarray.
And what if she’d just “run away”
And Far Right/Daily Mail hold sway?
What does her manifesto say?
For social care you’ll have to pay;
More cuts for schools are on the way;
Retireds face a cut in pay*;
Few immigrants? The figures say
A record under Mrs May*.
What will we get “post-Brexit day”?
The NHS will fade away
And if you’re ill you’ll have to pay*;
More zero hours and more low pay;
Meanwhile the richest will make hay;
More cuts – for that’s the Tory way.
Why WOULD YOU vote for Mrs May?
*Disabled Kathy in Abingdon recently wanted Mrs May not to cut disabled living allowance and care. (Kathy has £100 a month to live on.) * 25 April 2016
*No triple lock on state pensions
*A record 650,000 immigrants entered UK in May’s last year as Home Secretary.
*Boris Johnson wants us to pay for NHS treatment, Michael Gove to privatise it, Iain Duncan Smith to replace it with an insurance system – John Major said the NHS was as safe in their hands as a pet hamster would be with a hungry python.”
