an open letter to Andrew Lloyd Webber
Your are indeed a strange and selfish little man and we doubt we can appeal to any humanity left in your gold plated but ultimately ice cold soul.
For years we have had to put up with your corny musicals fill of caterwauling and hollering and then there was you awkward appearances on TV talent shows as some kind of judge where you sat there like some kind of amphibian passing judgement on the desperate and the needy as they tried to enter your world. It was like the last days of Rome replayed for the 21st century nervous breakdown.
Still we could have put with all of this and let it all slip by in the name of showbiz – a place where fortunes are made from shiny baubles and snake oil salesmen but then this week arrived.
Now, in this life there are rich people and very rich people. The world is fucked because a few people have grabbed everything. Some of them sit there counting their money in their gothic mansions, some give it away to charity but some seem to take great pleasure in making the poor even poorer.
This week whilst we were celebrating that strange and arcane institution the House Of Lords doing something useful and making a stand against the slippery ad-man Cameron and his evil side kick George Osbourne. The fusty old Lords standing against their latest wheeze of crushing the spirit and the finances of the poor Sherrif Of Nottingham style. The nasty pair were keen to rob the last few groats from the peasants of England by slashing the poor people’s tax credits and the Lords defeated but then it came to our attention that some of those Lords had decided to vote with the bad guys.
It didn’t seem to be enough for them that they already had everything. It was like they had some psychotic need to rub everyone else’s faces deeper into the mire.
Where is Robin Hood when you need him!
The House Of lords itself is an anachronism, a place where the unelected sit and is one of the last vestiges of feudal England – an old chums place full of the cranky and the weird with the occaisonal good soul but standing up against the Tories at their Sherrif of Nottingham worst makes it loveable for a few days…
There are still some unelected members who are worth £650 million flying in from New York to vote in favour of Osbourne’s plan to impoverish millions of people in the UK. For this person in particular it was the first time they had bothered to vote on the House Of Lords for over two years so it was obviously something they felt really strongly about – you would have thought that in two years there would have been something else to feel strongly about Mr. Lloyd Webber…because this person who flew in was you.
Mr. Lloyd Webber – A multi millionaire feeling strongly that poor people should be poorer….all we want to as ask you is how do you sleep…
