Prudence is AWOL



According to the BBC our beloved Gollum Brown is prudence personified. Perhaps they have not noticed the waste that continues in the tax credit fiasco the PM`s elegant flagship the .
This years depressing figures are £6.6 billion overpaid £3.9 billion still to be recovered and £700,000000 already written off. 2000,000 families a year are affected by overpayment and the government are chasing punters for £1.5 billion. The cost of running the system has risen to £587,000,000 ie by 40% . What happened to Dear Prudence then ?


Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play
Dear Prudence, greet the brand new day
The cost is up, you shoved it through
Its horrible and so are you
Dear Prudence won't you come out to play

Prudence come out to play? Not bloody likely!

When I screwed up on the benefits front
I didnae wish to look a ****
So I pushed Primarolo oot in front
For I havnae any scruples!

Let the wind blow high ...etc

They will be after me, Newmania. They have paid me £7.40 every week for nearly a year now, and they will want it all back and more...I wish I'd never applied.

Lillith thats awful if you run out of cash you can come and live with me as a second wife .

It's no wonder that many people choose to opt out of the tax-benefits system altogether. I keep trying to get my bosses to pay me in cash but they won't do it for some reason.

I never got anything yet - despite the fact that on paper I should. If I were awaiting this and relying on it I would have died of starvation by now. A crap system it simultaneously overpays, underpays and persecutes...

Poor you, Lileth - and a hex on Gordon Brown - and with apologies to bad, bad Elroy Brown:

And it's bad, bad Gordon Brown
The clunking fist crushing England's towns
He's meaner than old King Kong
And redder than Mau Zedong

Now Gordon he's a taxman
From his greed gorged head to his toes
Laughs as he sneaks stealth taxes in
Under everybody's nose

This crooked tax calculator
Get his rocks off on our pain
While he fills the coffers of nulab
And their greed fueled gravy train

And it's bad, bad Gordon Brown
The clunking fist
Crushing England's towns
He's meaner than old King Kong
And redder than Mau Zedong
