What did you do between the wars, daddy?

I was a tax inspector
I was a prison officer 
I was an immigration official 
between the wars.
I was a nu-labour stooge 
in times of austerity
with sweat at the coalface of party conference 
between the wars.

(I must confess to feeling very slightly duplicitious here because in fact Between the Wars is one of the very few Billy Bragg songs I still like)
