it was ever so

(redirected from twas ever so)

it was ever so

It has always been this way; this has always been the truth. Sometimes stylized as "'twas ever so." We should be disappointed to learn our political leaders are so deep in the pockets of corporations, but we should not be surprised. It was ever so. Twas ever so, unfortunately: the higher you are in the economic and social hierarchies, the more you depend on the exploitation of lower-class workers.

You may say "'twas ever so", but as a man of 77 I can recall when people with real principles were in office, such as the men and women who established the Welfare State here, and when you consider the vast wealth that poured into this country in the heyday of Empire, it was not before time.
