A poem for you all

(Not my own work)

Daftland

We live in a country called Daftland
The Britain we knew is no more
Where sensible people do ludicrous things
Or risk breaking some Daftland law.
In Daftland we've police dogs with muzzles
Less the villain has cause to complain
And to steal from a shop and say 'sorry'
Means your free with no stain to your name.

You had better leave lights on in buildings
When you lock up and go home at night
'cause the burglars might hurt themselves entering
And there's no way you'll be in the right.
When speaking be wary in Daftland
As some terms that you've used all your life
Now have connotations unintended
And you'll end up in all sorts of strife.

We elect politicians in Daftland
To give us the laws of the land
Yet eight laws in ten now come from abroad
The whole thing has got out of hand.
The borders are open in Daftland
And of migrants there's no keeping track
Just a few of the thousands illegally here
Will ever be caught and sent back.

The exception to this is the hero
Who fought for this land in the war
He's old and he's sick, he might cost us a bit
So he's not welcome here any more.
When the history is written of Daftland
Historians may just recall
That the craziest people in Daftland
Were the public who put up with it all.

Unless the people of this country wake up and our politicians start fiddling the laws so that they actually apply to this country and they do the job we elected them to do and what we pay them to do.. This country as we NEW IT is well on it's way to being finished.

While we are gift wrapping our wealth and our nation and sending it by first class post to our European Neighbours and even worse their next neighbours this ship is sinking faster than a sponge in a bath.

Quite right, because Labour never made a mess of things did they?

In my humble opinion, we don't have a party capable of governing this country and certainly no one person capable and fit enough to lead it. That's why Ed Milliband took a hike out of it.

Yes because only Conservative politicians can be self deluded.
Corbyn isn't in the least self deluded.

Of course not, he doesn't even count.
