In 1979 the Labour government was brought down over its failure to grant even limited autonomy to Scotland as had been promised in its manifesto. Disastrously, the following election saw Margaret Thatcher installed as Prime Minister and ushered in the nightmare scenario of years of right-wing Tory government. Since then we've seen the systematic erosion of our civil liberties, the destruction of the trade union movement and the wholesale dismantling of the welfare state and National Health Service - not to mention increased state control of television and the press, and the abolition of the right to silence.

Machine gun toting police on our streets
TV cameras watching your every move
George Orwell's "1984" is here and now

Tories win in '79
Come and join the dole queue line
Smash the unions crush the poor - Welcome to 1984

Fuck everybody who voted Tory!

Company director
Vivisector
High court judge
Poll tax collector

Fuck everybody who voted Tory!

Yuppies who don't care about human need
People motivated only by their greed
Selfish, grasping fools who believe the media story,
Fuck everybody who voted Tory!

Right-wing Christian
Merchant banker
Dirty scab
Fox hunting wanker

Fuck everybody who voted Tory!

Police - army of the rich
Mary Whitehouse - fuckin' bitch
Fuck the Queen, the fuckin' slag
Fuckin' Thatcher - fuckin' hag

Fuck everybody who voted Tory!
Fuck everybody, everybody who voted Tory!

"I can see the Labour Party coming to power in the next election - maybe, maybe not - who knows? But it doesn't really make a difference who's in power - the State remains the same, the structure is still there, they just tinker with it a little here and there."
