Not all heroes wear capes: Contractor grills DXC globo veep on pay rises, offshoring, and cuts to healthcare help


New Model Army

Who would have thought DXC were using NMA lyrics as a 'plan' -assuming there is a plan

"On, on, on, cried the leaders at the back

We went galloping down the blackened hills

And into the gaping trap

The bridges are burnt behind us and there's waiting guns ahead

Into the valley of death rode the brave hundreds

We called for some assistance from the friends that we had known

But this is the 1980s and we were on our own

We never felt like heroes or martyrs to a cause

Just battle-weary soldiers in a bloody civil war

The massacre now is over and the order new enshrined

While a quarter of the nation are abandoned far behind

Their leaders offer the cliché words, so righteous in defeat

But no one needs morality when there isn't enough to eat

The unity bond is broken and the loyalty songs are fake"
