That’s why we’ve earned the right to call you #ToryScum

You took Labour’s WCA and you made it worse,
You called us fit for work while all knew we weren’t
Put us on your JSA, said we were better off in work
Put us on your work programme then sanctioned those who failed it

And you took the money and you gave it to your mates
Called us scroungers and sneered in our face
While some of us died, some starved, some suicide
That’s why we’ve earned the right to call you #ToryScum

You shut the Remploy factories, that gave our people work
We wrote to your MPs in vain, protested, fought the closures
But you threw our people out of work, in spite of their pleas
You said they would find other jobs, lies tripping out with ease

And you took the money and you gave it to your mates
Called us scroungers and sneered in our face
While more of us died, some starved, some suicide
That’s why we’ve earned the right to call you #ToryScum

You gave us Bedroom Tax, said we should all move
Where to we said?, where shall we go?, there is no where to move
Then pay you said, we’ll take our pound of flesh
Then Stephanie Bottril died, 1st of many Bedroom tax suicides
Others were evicted, after building up arrears, still others when to loansharks, you were oblivious to their tears

And you took the money and you gave it to your mates
Called us scroungers and sneered in our face
While more of us died, some starved, some suicide
That’s why we’ve earned the right to call you #ToryScum

Then you closed our ILF so we took you into court
We won the case, the judge agreed, you appealed, we won again
So you waited a while, then just closed it all again
You said “It’ll be all right, councils will make do”
We knew it was a blatant lie, and now your evil has come true

And you took the money and you gave it to your mates
Called us scroungers and sneered in our face
While more of us died, some starved, some suicide
That’s why we’ve earned the right to call you #ToryScum

You took our DLA away replacing it with PIP
Our people wait a year in queue, some die while waiting too
When finally people are assessed, they find they don’t qualify
Where once DLA paid our extra costs, PIP hangs us out to dry

And you took the money and you gave it to your mates
Called us scroungers and sneered in our face
While more of us died, some starved, some suicide
That’s why we’ve earned the right to call you #ToryScum

Then you try your universal credit, but that’s one saving grace
It doesn’t fucking work you prats, we’ll laugh right in your face
Jobcentre staff working out the numbers by hand, cos your IT is shit, but still you won’t admit it
This time you are up shit creek, your shame for all to see, you carry on wasting money on yet more shit IT

And you took the money and you gave it to your mates
Called us scroungers and sneered in our face
While more of us died, some starved, some suicide
That’s why we’ve earned the right to call you #ToryScum

You cut our Access to Work fund, that pays our extra costs,
You took our Motability fund while grinning all the time
We need these things to get to work, without them we’re at home
Years of hard won rights you take, we’re imprisoned all alone

And you took the money and you gave it to your mates
Called us scroungers and sneered in our face
While more of us died, some starved, some suicide
That’s why we’ve earned the right to call you #ToryScum

You took away our legal aid, you shut our CAB’s
Our lines of defence that we used to appeal
Now you want our human rights, our union rights, our protest rights
You want us with nothing left, what next? You want our lives?

And you took the money and you gave it to your mates
Called us scroungers and sneered in our face
While some of us died, some starved, some suicide
That’s why we’ve earned the right to call you #ToryScum

We’ve organised ourselves, to fight, our cause now well known
You still say you’ll protect us, lies we’ve clearly shown
We’ve called in the UN to investigate your crimes
We’ve taken you to court and won and we will do it again

But you took our money and you gave it to your mates
Called us scroungers and sneered in our face
While more of us died, some starved, some suicide
That’s why we’ve earned the right to call you #ToryScum

We’ve fought you in the streets, online, blockaded your roads
We’ve stormed Parliament’s doors, we’ve occupied the Abbey grounds
We’ve been a right thorn in your arse, and we’ve not finished with you yet
We’ll swear, we’ll scream, we’ll shout, we’ll spit, we’ll do what it takes

And you took our money and you gave it to your mates
Called us scroungers and sneered in our face
While more of us died, some starved, some suicide
That’s why we’ve earned the right to call you #ToryScum

We’ll fight you all the way you turds, we’ll call you what we want
We give not a shit about the offence we cause, we’re fighting for our lives
We’ve had enough of you, we want to see you gone
Till you’re a nasty smear on history, we will carry the fight on

Because you took our money and you gave it to your mates
Called us scroungers and sneered in our face
While more of us died, some starved, some suicide
That’s why disabled people call you #ToryScum

  1. Keep up the good fight comrades. We shall smash all that oppose us!

  2. Wonderful poem/song. Keep up the good work. The truth will set us free!

  3. I’m impressed by the twitter storm about people who died after being found ‘fit for work’. I hope the genie is out of the bottle – similar stories every week (or every day if possible!) are vital. I read somewhere that people are swayed more by stories than facts – so let’s bombard them with stories.

  4. Tory scum is correct – another torynazi pantomime in Manchester – whilst millions watch the big bake off tonight another disabled person dies……………………..
