Still life

Noel and Liam have still not made up

And it looks like the millers will
never win the cup
Theresa is still in number ten
And not much has changed since
Maggies den
We are still plagued with mass unemployment
Far too many are becoming insolvent
Everywhere people sleeping on the street
Too many families with nothing to eat
Still we can't bridge the north south divide
People still wait for a ticket to ride
The NHS has been brought to it's knees
With nobody there to answer the pleas
With cuts to police force crime will Be rife
And everyone lives on the edge of a knife
Will we ever get out of this rut
And wear the boot on the other foot
The Sun makes its fortune from pedaling lies
As little by little our economy dies
And nobody knows what brexit will bring
For many alarm bells are starting to ring
But from Rotherham to Manchester, Glasgow to Fife
As bad as it gets this is still life.

We used to have a our own business until the recession hit and the balifs ended up on the doorstep because we couldn't pay the bills

Now I'm working for minimum wage

In our town there are dozens of people living on the streets

The NHS and police force need more money

I don't want to emigrate, I like living in this country.

All I want is to see the money go to the right places.

"Everywhere people sleeping on the street
Too many families with nothing to eat."
A true picture you do depict,
Our future prospects have been nicked.
"People from other countries are desperate to come here to live,"
Soon we will have nothing left to give.
We are living on a sinking ship,
Lets move to the moon and enjoy our trip.

The UK is one of the wealthiest nations of the world, with high levels of education and health. We have freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom to worship any god we choose or to worship none. People from other countries are desperate to come here to live, so much so that we have to control immigration and are leaving the EU to achieve this.

Andrew for pity's sake I wish you and all the other moaning minnies would stop talking this country down. If you dislike it so much you are perfectly entitled to emigrate to one of the other 27...or try further afield.
