The Parrot Repetitive

The parrot in his cage is sitting pretty, hanging on tight. Meanwhile, Mr Toad is enjoying himself in the chaos he’s been allowed to stir up. Chaos is Toad’s element. It tends to follow him, with cameras. Presumably those who’ve granted Toad this scope find chaos fun as well.

The first… Continue reading The Parrot Repetitive

Mr Toad Goes Bombing

This was written on Wedesday August 28th, 2019. Worth noting that date. During this morning, we’ve learned that Mr Johnson intends to stop parliament meeting through most of September.

It is on public record that Mr Johnson has been sacked twice for lying. No rational employer would consider even short-listing… Continue reading Mr Toad Goes Bombing

Mr Toad Turns to Ballooning

Mr Toad had just come back from his morning swim in Biarritz, when this was written. However, the smoke over the Amazon forest could be smelt by all the G7 participants. But among the wine glasses, Mr Toad appeared to get on very well with the American Minotaur. I wrote… Continue reading Mr Toad Turns to Ballooning

Dust

Lost in the chaos of present events, we – or something in us – look to leadership for orientation, guidance and comfort. And the same something perhaps assumes that, the worse the crisis, the better that leadership must be and rescue is on the way. And assumes as well that, in this chaos, our own… Continue reading Dust

The Parrot Notes a Toad on the Hop

This stanza was written last night after I read that Mr Toad was about to head off to meet Mrs Merkel and Mr Macron, etc. And Mr Toad is going to tell them that the Irish back stop was “undemocratic” etc.

But today it turns out that there has also… Continue reading The Parrot Notes a Toad on the Hop

This despite the fact that all members of parliament have sworn an… Continue reading The Parrot Notes Mr Toad Grown Larger

The New Berserkers Take the Stage

Mr Toad and Mr Cummings having been making an impression. The “Remainers” are still stuttering and split. Can it get worse ?  It can. Mr Toad’s cunning plan has been to come out as a puffed up war lord, using his cabinet as his own personal commando unit. They wear… Continue reading The New Berserkers Take the Stage

The Parrot on Sanctuary

This piece looks back to when John Skelton wrote his poem “Speak, Parrot” in the sixteenth century. All these rhyme royal stanzas about Brexit I’m writing, refer to that poem, in one way or another. It is supposed that Skelton wrote it in the precincts of Westminster, where the medieval… Continue reading The Parrot on Sanctuary

The Parrot and the Elephant

This piece was written a few days after Mr Johnson became Prime Minister. Mr Toad seemed quite puffed up by now, that jolly mop on top sticking out in all directions. He was centre stage and the cameras were following him everywhere. And again we kept hearing that “Labour Must…”… Continue reading The Parrot and the Elephant

Mr Toad Leapfrogs the Stars

Since his accession, Mr Johnson had been upping the ante with regard to a “No Deal Brexit” and spraying money here, there and everywhere, as if Austerity had never existed.

But where was all that Tory money coming from, with our economy tanking ? What about these many years of… Continue reading Mr Toad Leapfrogs the Stars
