Rachman's Heirs

In January 2016, Conservative MPs voted down a Labour MP's Bill that would require landlords to ensure that homes to rent were fit for human habitation. Yes, really.

How very dare these bloody reds
Propose a law that homes I let
Be fit for folk to lay their heads
They should be glad of what they get

Punishes wealth creators. Stop blaming the
Millionaires, attacking hard-working people.

These bonds are very slightly pliant
You need a tougher cuff

Said the sleeping giant to the gaoler
There really is no need
For years I've lain here getting frailer
I've lost the will to leave

How to Bring Back the Hunt

First, establish in the common consciousness that they are vermin,
A scourge on our civilised way of life.
Point out that jobs depend on it,
That the route of the hunt is the road to recovery.
Explain that the years without the hunt brought
A resurgence of uncontrolled, destructive, anti-social villainy.
Circulate reports of their most savage crimes:

I. D. S.

(The former Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Iain Duncan Smith, is known as IDS. But what else might it stand for?)

If David Says
"I Demand Savings"
I'll Deliver Some!

I'd Delve through Sewage
Intimate Detailed Search
Identifies Deeper Savagery

I Dutifully Serve
Ignorance Division and Spite
