Hold the Fort, for We are Coming!


The recent Tory cuts will cost 500,000 people their jobs in the next four years. They have chosen to strike ordinary people, and those in hardship rather than close the ‘legal’ tax loopholes that only the rich can afford to pay accountants to ‘find’ and avoid paying their fair share.  George Osborne is just one such hypocrite.

This is not the only onslaught we face, Comrades.  It is not only the very real danger of a second recession before we recover from the first.  It is bad enough we face a government who would hold people to ransom over needed assistance be it for food or for housing (What’s next Osborne?  Extra fees for using the fire service, police, schools or ambulance service?), and a very real danger of our public services being dismantled or privatised, but since the Pope’s invasion of this country last month, which he used to undermine secular democracy, others  have taken this as licence for a media attack on our morals and have picked up the cue to communion whine (excuse the pun, couldn’t help it) about, being marginalised.

Enough is enough.  I am not going to sit quietly and take it anymore.  It is to this joint cause which I think this rousing little union march applies nicely.

We meet today  in freedoms cause
And raise our voices high.
We’ll join our hands in union strong
To battle or to die.

Hold the fort
For we are coming,
Union men be strong.
Side by side keep pressing onward,
Victory will come.

Look my comrades
See the union banner waving high.
Reinforcements now appearing
Victory is nigh.

Hold the fort
For we are coming,
Union men be strong.
Side by side keep pressing onward,
Victory will come.

See our numbers still increasing
Hear the bugles blow.
By our union we shall triumph
Over every foe.

Hold the fort
For we are coming,
Union men be strong.
Side by side keep pressing onward,
Victory will come.

 

Alternate Chorus.

Hold the fort for we are coming,
Union men be strong!
Side by side we’ll battle onward,
Victory will come!
