ETON UP BY FAILURE!
An Essex Psychotherapist states that David Cameron’s resignation as
PM and then as an MP was because he would be ignored and seen as
a failure - and that his fragile ego could not cope with such a situation.
Recall the ‘Big Society’, (1)
What did it signify?
A sea-change in morality?
Or more pie in the sky?
Remember the Cons brand new role,
How they would be so ‘Green’;
Dave on his sled at the North Pole, (2)
And all not worth a bean.
His pledge to end Child Poverty, (3)
Contained no ‘ifs or buts’;
And then we had austerity,
Slashed benefits and cuts!
With our fifth largest GDP,
Still Dave was firing blanks;
Bank bonuses became the key,
And funded our Food Banks.
So graft like Dave, then at a squeeze,
You’ll go to Eton too;
Provided Daddy pays the fees, (4)
You then can jump the queue.
To being PM with the fame,
Of being at the top;
‘Tis pity this high jump became,
A f… f… Fosbury Flop!
(1)‘The Big Society’ 2010 Tory Manifesto. After slashing
grants to charities, the phrase was dropped from 2013.
(2) ‘Hug a Husky’-2006. After claiming he would lead the
“Greenest government ever”, Cameron later cut energy
efficiency programmes and renewable energy subsidies.
(3) In 2006 Cameron described poverty as a "Moral
disgrace". His government later cut Child Tax Credits.
(4) Eton College Annual Fee: £34,434.
