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…

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. People are sick of our incompetence and inability to deliver and to honour our promises. We will be annihilated in the Euro elections if we break another promise and adopt Corbyn’s…

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…

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…

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…

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….
