SOAP : Corrie
Where's the most dangerous place in the UK to live?
Is it an inner city ghetto
such as Mosside, Handsworth or Camberwell
where gun and knife crimes are rife
and violence is part of everyday life?
No, it's Coronation Street with an unbelievable level
of accidents, incidents and murders
all within spitting distance of the Rovers
The residents should be living in fear
but they seem quite happy, and why shouldn't they be?
There's full employment, no-one's out of work,
no-one seems to worry if they lose their job
They're in no hurry to get on the phone,
they know that another will soon arise
within fifty yards of their home
There's no CV, psychometric tests or interviews,
no other candidates, no chance they might lose
It's just gissa job and can I have next Friday off
because I need to be there for my mate
who's visiting the clinic as she's nine days late.
