Reverse Robin Hoods

This:

Margaret Thatcher, former UK PM.

How Did We Get Here?

Britain and Ireland are very different countries, not least because the former occupied all or part of the latter for centuries. But one thing the London and Dublin governments share is a neo-liberal ideology learnt at the feet of Margaret Thatcher. One of the features of that ideology is a commitment to low taxes and low government spending. In reality, this is a policy which is designed to benefit capital at the expense of labour. Both Irish and British government policy is ‘reverse Robin Hood’ – take from the poor to give to the rich.

put me in mind of this:

law abiding citizen turned into a savage,
Got to feed the children, got to feed the habit
Fell into a rabbit hole, chasing that rabbit
Now I’m in Wonderland feeling like the Son of Sam
I’m at your west coast branch, gun in hand

..

You know i heard they hood robbin’, your money or your life and there ain’t no stoppin’
