The Candidates Find Common Ground

Full employment!

Slave labour and schemes!"

"An unemployed workforce

The capitalist's dream!"

"But let's keep Britain working

Either way we must keep Britain working"



"Conventional weapons

To kill people nicely!"

"Nuclear weapons

To keep the peace!"

"But weapons definitely

Either way we must defend ourselves"



"Nationalism

With one big boss!"

"No, privatisation

With lots of little bosses!"

"But someone in control of course

Either way there must be someone giving orders"



A toast to democracy

The prison guard of this society

Sides in the voting game

Disappear into the same machine...



A toast!

To US bases and nuclear weapons

To stopping pickets, pulling down fences

To British troops in Northern Ireland

To the wonderful victory in the Falklands

To the plastic bullet and the riot police

To the UDM and the TUC

To isolating gays and to law and order

To richer bosses and poorer workers

To longer hours and ess pay

To the courts (for those we get in the way)

To the beating of people who step out of line

To the use of troops to break a strike

To the expulsion of extremists

To political witch hunts

To repatriation and to benefit cuts

To peaceful settlements

And no strike agreements

To authority, to power, to governments



To the annual rise in the MP's wage

To vested interests, to privilege

To the party who wins the next election

By definition a victory to capitalism!



The End
