Crossing

Written after going through the Thousand Island border crossing from Canada to the USA.

Queue, crawl, window down, good day
Who? How many? Where from? Which way?
How long? What for?
Been here before?

Park, get out. Through those gates
Forms, names, numbers, dates
Terrorist? Spy? Crimes to confess?
(Does anyone ever answer Yes?!)

Farageland

New words for The Clash classic, 'Garageland':

Backing the Farage with my bullshit detector
Winning an election with a Tory defector
We hate politicians but we're worse than the rest
Keep quiet about our policy to destroy the NHS

We're a Farage band - ah-ah-ah
We come from Farageland - ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah

'British Work for British Hands'

Seeing this Conservative candiddate's advert in a 1910 issue of the East London Advertiser, it struck me that the 'British jobs for British workers' slogan of a couple of years ago was neither new nor left-wing.

‘British work for British hands’
Not for scum from foreign lands
Tory slogan, nineteen ten,
How much has really changed since then?
