Rule Britannia? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot…


Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!

Britons never, never, never will be slaves.


When Britain first, at heaven’s command,

Arose from out the azure main,

This was the charter of the land,

And Guardian Angels sang this strain:


Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!

Britons never, never, never will be slaves.


The nations not so blest as thee

Must, in their turn, to tyrants fall,

While thou shalt flourish great and free:

The dread and envy of them all.


When I went out into the garden this afternoon, I wondered if there would still be a British prime minister when I came muddied back in. Lo and behold the Westminster farce continues and there is going to be another round of Tory elections. The reputation of Britain and England, in particular, is plummeting. Don’t they get it? Any legitimacy they had to elect from within their own party has tanked. Yet there is a good chance that they are going to inflict another round of ostrich head in the sand fiasco on us. There will be more exciting hustings and the Boris {the big dog} is even being mooted. Truss said she would ignore Sturgeon and wanted to know how to get into Vogue…The untied kingdom is unravelling.


What planet are this bunch on?

How will other countries view a U turn allowing this {Boris}?

Maybe we need a military coup?

There is clearly a disconnect between how the Tory boys and girls in Westminster see themselves and reality.  Unfortunately, there is no housemaster to administer the cane nor a matron to clear up after them. It is starting to look like a Carry on Up the Westminster, Fawlty Towers, or Benny Hill. Cue music.

The sad thing is that our pensions are paid in Sterling.

When you are in a hole, is it not wise to stop digging?

I foresee that yet another internal Tory election will unleash more ridicule and further lower the perception of Britain in the eyes of those not on Albert Square, Coronation Street, or Brookside Close…
