I've just read that David Cameron spends ninety pounds on a haircut, And he keeps telling us that we are all in this together, and he is one of us, It helps that he got a pay rise of 11% it's not his fault we can't keep up, And his hairdresser is in the New Years' Honours List, I know, you just couldn't make this up, Well I am a pensioner, and I could get 25 hair cuts for the price he pays, That would keep me going for two years, or 730 days, If David Cameron really wants to be more like us, He should go along and get some clippers from Argos, Then he could give himself a crew cut, a stylish number three, Not only would he go from zero to hero, think of how much money he could save the economy, by Arthur Lowe, Liverpool
