By Norman Longworth


The polling is over the decision is clear

A triumph for ignorance, hatred and fear

One in the eye for political nobs

Another for intellectual snobs


A triumph for old folks who bought all that crap

Disaster for youngsters who’ll now face the rap

A triumph for Murdoch, the Mail and the Sun

Disaster for everyone in the long run


Triumph for patriots with brains in the sand

Who couldn’t work out what’s best for their land

Disaster for workers whose jobs are on hold

And good British companies whose goods can’t be sold


So its goodbye to reason, goodbye hopefulness

Goodbye to employment, goodbye NHS

As Britain’s direction flies far to the right

And British values far into the night
