Tell Me Jeremy

Submitted by Janine on 09 February 2016 at 17:23

Tell me Jeremy, with lives at stake
Aren't doctors safer when they're awake?
Would you have surgery from a doc
Who's been on duty round the clock?

Tell me Jeremy, tell me why
You seem to think that you can buy
Our doctors' lives, and their assent
For pieces of silver, a few per cent?

Written in support of RMT's campaign to stop the (SNP) Scottish government privatising the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry services:

Our Cally Mac's for sale
Public service coffin's nail
We'll nae let fares go skywards 
- Pirates!

Piranhas 'neath the waves
Lurk hungry in the caves
We've seen your profit figures 
- Gold diggers!

Merry Christmas, City Link

Merry Christmas, City Link
Your idea of goodwill stinks
Write your cards in poison ink
Merry Christmas, City Link

Asset-stripped and all wrapped up
Bought a firm, sold us a pup
Paid a quid then cut and run
Once your profiteering's done

Punch for workers, Christmas crack
Gave out gifts, got Santa's sack
Hope your workforce occupies - 
Raise the call to nationalise!

Country Reports

Spain

From 2007, the socialist government introduced equality legislation and a framework to demand action against sexism and harassment. But since then, the situation has been worsened by economic crisis, with equalities driven off the agenda, curbs on collective bargaining, crèches closed, and equality plans dropped.
