BRIBING THE OLDIES WITH GOODIES!
The Institute of Economic Affairs has accused the Chancellor
of the Exchequer, George Osborne, of cynical electioneering
after he announced the issue of extra Old-Age Pensioner bonds
The Chancellor is sucking up,
To wrinklies for their vote;
In a quite sneaky ruse to keep,
His government afloat.
As geriatrics are the ones,
Who’ll vote the Tory way;
Along with anti-immigrants,
And the now married gay.
The I.E.A.’s passed judgement on,
The Chancellor’s crude scam;
A government that is TODAY,
Providing folk with jam!
Now as the oldies in their plots,
Rub fungus off their Fronds;
At least they know they’re quids in with,
Their Old Age Pension Bonds!
