    Isn't it more like Robin Hood in reverse? The (working) poor are having cash stolen from them by government - it's just like Thatcher all over again.

    Gordon Brown, Gordon Brown
    Riding through the land
    Gordon Brown, Gordon Brown
    Without a merry band
    He steals from the poor.
    And gives to the rich
    Stupid bitch.
