Savvy Book – Truth To Power

‘‘Truth to Power’, by Jess Phillips. A  savvy little book (signed copies available from Waterstones) with a big, if somewhat difficult to stomach, message. ‘Hate the sin not the sinner.’ (p.47) In other words, don’t waste your energy exacting revenge upon a single person, even if they did you a serious wrong.

Sillily-Serious Poem – Young Boris

I wrote this, yesterday morning (17th Oct, 2019), after observing a youthful Boris lookalike sauntering through St. Peter’s market square, Sudbury.

Savvy Poem – Keeping Stum

A response to an article suggesting that staff at the BBC were told not to back Naga Munchetty, following viewer’s complaints about her jibe at Trump’s racist remarks. Do not talk to her.

Has to Go: SSS Politics

She has to go. Has to go as she hammers it home; as she hams up her deal for hammering it up with Corbyn.   She was the one. She was the one tapping a pencil on her desk, tap, tap, tapping it up, vying for attention from her teacher.   She is not for…

People’s May Pole: SSS Politics

“Colleagues have paid dearly for our prime minister’s failure to believe in and back the decision of 17.4 million voters to leave the EU.
