“Financially times are not easy
Politicians require most gains
But there are still a few options
Pre-deciding to open ones veins

We’re forced to pay for Ireland
Greece, Portugal, Spain and our health
It is therefore no great surprise
This impacts on so-called “wealth”

One really needs sound investments
That actually make some returns
To counter both tax and inflation
Or money just withers and burns

You ought to try ASPL
Who are always leading the fame
I do – they’re very effective
And suggest that you do the same
Mr D - Chesterfield

Peace of mind that our finances are in your careful hands. Mr & Mrs S - Cheshire
