008 – Compare and Contrast

Compare and Contrast

At each of the briefings the graphs have been there
The message came through loud and clear 
Comparing ‘gainst countries who aren’t doing well 
They’re far worse off there than us here

Ministers and experts comparisons drawn 
To highlight how great we have done
See how we are better than others out there
It showed how our battle’d been won

But now graphs show starkly we don’t compare well
Our spluttering leaders decide 
Comparing ‘tween nations is no longer safe
So we should dismiss all their slides
