Embedded text or transcriptLow (to our political expert): "Mr. Brown, you;'e letting the situation get out of hand."
A few weeks ago it was "Austerity Cripps". Now It's "Spendthrift Cripps." Very confusing.
More Petrol
More Food
More Fags
Less Everything
Cuts
Economy
No wonder the coots who've been howling for more everything don't know nowwhether they're coming or going
All this blaming it allon 'Doctrinaire Socialists' Who are you calling names?
The americans who wished convertibility on us to drain our gold reserves?
So we must boost the morale of employers by cutting taxes and raising profits, hey?
And we must boost the moral of workers by cutting the standard of life and raising working hours?
Well it's a point of view
Is it really true that if we drop the steel bill Argentina will lower the price of meat?
Will the Zulus buy more of our grandpianos if we scrap the Welfare State
I warn you, sir. Take Care. You may go.
