'The Daleks take the Treasury'

Easy to spot them. 

Another metallic voice in parliament. 

Exterminate the economy! 

Pound plunges, Britannia unhinged. 

The Daleks take the Treasury. 

◄ The funeral

The way forward ►

Funny you should say that, Martin. I do have another Dalek poem, which often is dusted down at readings https://iamnotasilentpoet.wordpress.com/2019/02/04/return-of-the-daleks-by-greg-freeman/
I usually change two of the three-word slogans, depending on what is currently in vogue, but 'Take back control!' never changes!

I am with you on this one Greg. I would love to hear you read it with a dalek voice.

Thanks for your comments, Isobel, Steve, Graham, and Flyntland, and for the Likes, Nigel, Frederick, N.B, JC, Julie, and Holden. It is said that betting on the collapse of the pound - which makes the rest of us poorer - has made the main beneficiaries of Kwasi Kwarteng's budget even richer. Just fancy that! (It makes me feel a little, well, kweasi)

This country is built on the backs of the poor - it has always been so - trickle down is a myth.

It may cause another overheating of the housing market, Graham! PS But looking at this comment a few days on, it doesn't seem like the housing market is going to overheat at all ... quite the reverse, in fact.

Nice one, Greg. Another reason to hide behind the sofa (if it hasn't been repossessed).

It's a sad day for this country when a government can be so out of touch with the plight of its people, that it thinks it ok to roll out a budget like that.

Yes it does rather take us into the realm of science fiction - it's so ghastly , it's unbelievable.
