Strong and stable

Strong and stable

Theresa’s been
given her lines.
Yes, Strong and Stable
it’s on the table,
not fact but fable,
it’s just a label,
hopeless, not able,
propaganda Babel.

Sangria in Spain: An ode to #Remain

Austrian ParliamentOver the last few weeks I’ve seen some impassioned and considered blog posts outlining so eloquently why the respective authors want to remain in the EU. I must admit, I panicked. How could I make my own contribution to the debate in the last few weeks stand out from the rest?
Yesterday evening, it struck me. Something that hasn’t (to my knowledge) been done before… An A-Z ‘Remain’ poem and general ode to the EU! You saw it here first. Enjoy….

Up

Yeah,
we’re down now
but we’ll get up.
Hey, let’s face it
we’ve been
down before.
Not the first time.
Probably not the last.
You don’t become
a Lib Dem
because you
lust LOVE power,
long to clasp it
sweatily to you
knuckles sprung tensed.
Really no.

    I hope and assume that KCC looked at the Norway option which would be a very sensible solution to this.
