British government’s war on disabled people, satire


This 16 November 2016 parody music video from Britain is called Green Damian – “Time Off Your Life (Good Riddance)”.

It is a parody of the song Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life) by United States band Green Day.

The lyrics are:

Hi, my name is Damian Green, I am the Secretary
For Work and Pensions at the DWP
I think the welfare cap we put in place was sound
If you just die we could save millions of pounds
You say it’s reprehensible, but given funds are tight
I hope it takes some time off your life

The chronically ill and disabled are workshy
I might not say that outright but it is implied
Let’s divert their benefits to the elderly
After all, they’re much likelier to vote Tory
You say it’s reprehensible, but given funds are tight
I hope it takes some time off your life

And let’s bring up the pension age into the mid-eighties
You get too much time off in your life

HUNDREDS of protesters gathered outside Parliament last night as the government continued its ruthless attack on disabled people. In March, the Tories ignored widespread opposition and forced through a £29 per week cut to employment and support allowance, affecting almost half a million disabled people from April 1 next year: here.
