No-one Was Available

No-one Was Available

No-one was available.

                Ducking into fridges.

                                Hiding behind locked doors.

No-one was available.

                Keeping heads down.

                                Pretending it will go away.

No-one was available.

                Missing in action.

                                Hoping it will blow over.

No-one was available.

                Avoiding scrutiny.

                                Sidestepping accountability.

No-one was available.

                A new Tory policy.

                                A way to deal with criticism.

No-one was available.

                No challenging of power.

                                No defence of policy.

Opher – 14.3.23

A policy that was brought in under Boris ‘in the fridge’ Johnson. Simply vanish. Do not answer questions or defend policy. That scrutiny will only show up weaknesses and inflame the situation – so hide.

Time after time we are told that no government spokesperson was available.

Scrutiny and accountability is the bedrock of democracy.

But then the Tories have undermined democracy every step of the way, taking over the BBC, running the media as an arm of Tory propaganda; using slurs and fear to control. Lineker was right.

I want to hear Ministers with the balls to defend their policies. I want the policies dissected. I want them made accountable for what they do.

No hiding away!
