English & Proud?

  Those batty English Democrats are surely pretty dim To be living on an island when none of them can swim! I can see them standing straight and proud, all making such a din – when global warming takes its toll and the waves come rolling in!   Copyright owned by Jay Cool, July 2019,…

Really quite something!

  It’s really quite something that we want to Remain.

New and Bold: Savvy Politics

Why leave, as we’re told, when some are not sold? It’s not new and it’s not bold, to go back to the old.   Copyright owned by Jay Cool, May 2019 Written in response to Theresa May’s claim to have a ‘new and bold’ Brexit deal. See The Independent for further details.   Image by pixel2013 from…

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…

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…

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…

Free Movement

I had a dream. A dream that moved me. A dream about movement – about freedom. The freedom to move; to be moving and maintaining; maintaining one’s person in a public place: peeling one’s toe nails in a business meeting; picking one’s bogies whilst delivering a speech; plucking one’s mole hairs in company with a…

Seconds of Seconds in the month of May – and Still Standing!

Memorable. Awkward. I’m running down East Street, shouting ‘Stop that wan***! Stop that wan***! Steggsy’s nicked off with the Ladies’ toilet roll!’ And, all the time, I’m trying to hang onto my jeans, in a futile attempt to keep them hanging low, and avoid falling victim to any brown staining. But it’s a waste of time. I look…
