The Parrot Lectures to Himself


This was written on Sunday 20th. Saturday’s huge demonstration in London was still being digested. But would it have any impact ? The right wing propaganda rags had gone beserk in their Sunday issues, more concerned with Parliament’s defiance of the Toad than anything the march might imply.

Courage had been shown in the House, in the face of more attempts at sculduggery on the part of our Mr Toad and Dr Doombeetle. And for a moment the fog cleared in the mind of this observer and I saw that Brexit has always been a delusion, a cause and conflict of no validity, nor end, a nothingness with no resolution, just a funny word to put a nation’s poison in.
