Too Low 4 Zero

Back In 1983 Elton John had a hit with the song Too Low 4 Zero.
Bernie Taupin was the lyricist of the song, but I am left wondering if Bernie is a prophet?

Here are the Lyrics to the song:

Six o’clock alarm
I get the wake up call
Let that sucker jingle-jangle
Ring right off the wall
I’m too low for zero
I’m too tired to work
Tied one on with a friend last night
And wound up losing my shirt
I’m too low for zero
I’m on a losing streak
I got myself in a bad patch lately
I can’t seem to get much sleep
I’m too low for zero
I wind up counting sheep
Nothing seems to make much sense
It’s all just Greek to me
You know I’m too low, too low, too low for zero
You know I’m too low, too low, too low for zero
Cutting out cups of coffee
Switching off the late night news
Putting the cat out two hours early
It isn’t any use
I’m too low for zero
Insomnia attacks
Watching flies with my eyes till sunrise
It’s daylight when I hit the sack
You know I’m too low, too low, too low for zero
You know I’m too low, too low, too low for zero

It could almost have been written with George Osbourne in mind.

Lets examine the evidence.

The reference to the 6’oclock alarm, fits nicely with the BBC 6 O’clock news, and its contents over the past few days have been rather alarming for George and his pals.
Particularly his pal Hunt and the revelations of the Levison inquiry

A complete downer for George I am sure, and he sure aint creating work with his policies, and we are the ones left without work because of them. .

I am not sure if George is still into his Sado Masochist Madame, but in the news a few months back there were a few accounts of his association and pictures cosying up to her!
We in Scotland would be the masochists if we continued in our Union with the UK, and allow George his Sadistic Kicks at the expense of our poor and disadvantaged, frail and elderly.

“I’m too low for zero
I’m on a losing streak
I got myself in a bad patch lately
I can’t seem to get much sleep
I’m too low for zero
I wind up counting sheep
Nothing seems to make much sense
It’s all just Greek to me”

I can’t say that George is losing sleep, but If he had any normal sense of the immorality of some of the policies he and this government are pursuing, he certainly should be!
He certainly has hit a Bad patch lately, and its only getting worse, much worse!
Nothing of what he does makes much sense except to his wealth pals. The rest of us are the ones who are suffering for his austerity measures, but more worrying Is that if we had a Labour UK government, we would be in an even worse mess. We have not forgotten Darlings promise to cut much deeper and faster than Thatcher after getting us into the mess in the first place.
How did Bernie Taupin know about the Greek crisis back in 83? George is delivering us nicely into the same state as Greece today.

“Cutting out cups of coffee
Switching off the late night news
Putting the cat out two hours early
It isn’t any use
I’m too low for zero
Insomnia attacks
Watching flies with my eyes till sunrise
It’s daylight when I hit the sack
You know I’m too low, too low, too low for zero
You know I’m too low, too low, too low for zero”

One thing for sure is that George will want to switch off the late night news tonight, and kick out his next door neighbours cat in no.10 Downing street.
The cat is supposed to catch rodents in no.10, but it is failing miserably because the biggest ones are living all around him!

But George, you are too low for zero, you are lowest than the low, and you are bringing the UK down with you. We are now all too low for zero, at -0.2% growth, and we are now officially in a double dip recession.

If this is the Union benefit for Scotland, we will all be on benefits if it carries on.

Time to make it on our own, we can’t do any worse than Zero!

I am not a member of any political party. I am however a strong supporter of Scots Independence. Any views which I express in this Blog are purely my own. This Blog intends to be a place where I will be putting my views on Scots Independence. It will primarily concern itself with the upcoming Referendum In Scotland. However It will also be somewhat diverse in the range of day to day issues which are evident to me in modern day Scotland. Not all of it will be political, and indeed may take me off into avenues I am not even aware of yet.
