I feel the intent here, is to reveal or show up the ugliness of our dumbed down consumerism, in otherwords its quite political. That being said, she didn't present it in a way that clarifies this to a younger generation perhaps, as its ambiguous and dry .
If she had really intended to educate something in the ending would have indicated her true nature, instead it left her hanging, almost helpless and asleep in the system. As an adult this is subtle, but a teenager is just going to hear the words. And words repeated, with cool sounding cuss words, set to music is a strong form of NLP. Or a kind of magic almost, if you will. So I can see this song serving a dual purpose. I think it seems to be a sophisticated statement actually serving a darker purpose.

The fact that this Artist and her lyrics are being discussed is proof positive that the music has had an effect. I guess Lily Allen wants to put across, her observations on society, without sounding preachy to the youth. She has pitched it right and that's why her CDs sell.
