References in the stanza : Len = Len McKluskey ; Jon = Jon Lansman, founder and Chair of Momentum ; Lilliput is the land of the little people, featured in the first part of “Gulliver’s Travels” by Jonathan Swift. “Gulliver’s Travels” is a satire consisting of four parts, with Lilliput featuring only in the first one.
