The Way Through: SSS Politics

 ‘Can we find a way through this?’ she asks. A rhetorical question, requiring no response. ‘We have  a duty’, and ‘I believe that leaving the EU is the right way!’ Strange, as she was the one who voted to stay! I say the ‘one’, as she requires no other voice but her own. The ‘People’s…

Resignation

  A sign. May offers to resign. But, only if MPs accept her design. May’s not a loss, but why toe the line, if to give her the toss, we’ll swap her for twine?   Even if Donald has excellent thighs, why tie up our produce in a tangle of lies?   Copyright owned by…

Exonerated

False. All made up. All made up and fixed up. All the words that blow out of my mouth. All bubbles, airborne and popping, leaving nothing. No untruths, no fairy tales, no collaborative cock-up with Putin. All filled up, popped up and emptied, I leave you with my nothingness. An empty space –     …

Remain

Private Eye’s up for stockpiling, bog roll and tinned sardines – so hard to keep on smiling, with Tories such machines   that May just keeps on ranting (she’s sticking to her guns) and won’t admit lamenting, the ones who had the runs.   No hope of her resigning (she’s far too fond of mules),…

On the Day that May Listens

  I will dive into a small gathering of Independents, I will spread out amongst them, filling in the gaps with my thoughts and my opinions, that will be shared and listened to, along with theirs. I will be the glue that, when baked, rises and spills over, spreading the sweet taste of freshness far…

It’s time to guide our daughter, and our grandchild, home …

Indeed it is ‘heart-breaking’. Populist British newspapers have lost sight of the fact that Shamima Begum was a child when she made the decision to join ISIS. British children are not allowed to vote until the age of 18, are not allowed to marry (without parental permission) until 18, and cannot leave the institution of…

Keep Moving

‘The UK will remain a leading military power,’ says Theresa May (Press Association, 30th July, 2018). Line yourselves up in orderly fashion. Keep calm. Take care! Smoothly does it. Single file! No holding hands! Best feet forward. Leave the bad soles behind. The hungry, the sick, the old and insane. Come on! Fit – to…

Doing Nothing

I was inspired to get all poetical about Professor Gillian Leng, when I developed a bit of an empathetic itch after reading all about her inspirational NHS savings’ plan (SkyNews, June 30, 2018):   ‘Doing nothing’ is ‘best.’ Promising zilch is fine. Talking with May is fair. It’s fair to chop an op or two….
