In all our sanctuaries we sit at risk

The Toad Goes Hunting for Votes


Toad’s progress around the country this election is always, of course, more a search for images which might benefit him, than a chance for real encounters with real people.

And, to date,  that search has come up with some striking images, which would appear to be considered appealing to us. There he is in one picture, wearing boxing gloves with “Get Brexit Done” printed on them, and a Toad’s face between the gloves, smirkingly up for battle.

And there’s been another picture in which the Toad meets a large bull in a cattle market. And there again we see that face smirkingly up for battle, though the supposedly fearsome bull tethered close by might be accused of looking a bit bored.
