Poetry – Lies


It is written in blood

Down the ages –

Time and again.

It is heard in screams,

From the dark,

From the ruins.

It is written by the winners

With the blood of the slain.

It repeats,

            It echoes,

                        It reverberates,

In a never-ending cycle.

Why do people believe the lies of leaders who lead them to war? Why do they ever think that war is an answer?

The lies litter history.

The promises are broken.

The dreams never come true.

Yet still people take up arms and follow. They bay. They shout. They kill, maim and they die.

Brexit – The Incompetence of Johnson laid bare by Milliband


The sad thing is that we are all living with the failure and incompetence of this fool! He’s led us into a complete mess with Europe and an ongoing complete cock-up over Covid-19. He’s needlessly killed tens of thousands and thrown working people into endless austerity.

But loads of Tories have made a fortune out of both. That’s all they care about.

Oven-Ready Brexit Deal – (Previously a great deal!) – a disaster – needs renegotiating!

Frost says that the deal, negotiated in good faith by both sides and agreed by both sides, is not working!! It needs renegotiating.

We chose to leave the Customs Union and Single Market. We knew what that meant. It means customs borders. It means tariffs. It means huge cost, slower movement, a reduction in trade, job losses and increased prices. It means employing huge numbers of customs officers. It means lots of red tape. It is a storm of bureaucracy.

We chose to put a border in Northern Ireland even though we knew it would create huge problems for Ireland.

We chose this – not Europe!

We chose to make trade harder, to make it cost more and to impose checks and tariffs. We chose that.

Lord Frost says it isn’t working. We said it wouldn’t before Johnson said it was oven-ready and a great deal. But then he’s a proven liar.

It was neither oven-ready nor a great deal.

But we voted for it and we signed it.

Too late now!!

What’s to renegotiate!

The right-wing press can bleat. The government can try to blame it on Europe, but this is precisely what the right-wing extremists of the ERG were wanting. Johnson, Farage, Gove and Rees-Mogg wanted this. They lied to get it. They got Cummings on board to sell it to us.

We bought it – we brought it on ourselves.

(13) Government Wants to Restart the Whole Brexit Process – YouTube

It’s as if we are ruled by a bunch of morons who don’t understand the implications of the deal that they spent three years negotiating!

We are led by a bunch of morons.

Perhaps we should rejoin the customs union?? Perhaps the single market was a great idea after all?

What a mess.

I wonder, to the nearest 10 Billion, how much this is really costing us?

Poetry – The Buffoon and the Toff

The Buffoon and the Toff

The buffoon and the Toff will see Mrs May off.

With their Eton swagger, their cloak and dagger;

There is no doubt, they’ll bowl her out.

Bojo and Mogg, lost in their Brexit fog,

Will open up the rift while careering to the cliff,

And never take the blame, for damage of their fame.

Shambling and strutting, iffing and butting;

What a strange pair, the penguin and the bear;

Eyeing up the prize with their little piggy eyes.

They’ll hang her out to dry and never give a why;

With their posturing and frolics, it’s all just dirty pol’tics.

You stab me and I’ll stab you, any knife will do.

Do they care about you and me or the future of the country?

No, they don’t give a fig, the skunk and the pig;

From their ivory tower it’s only ever about the power.

For the jugular they are slashing with their silly Brexit bashing.

You don’t need a brain to see it’s all a game.

And when they’re all through in – their lying and their doing

They’ll leave us all in ruin.

Ain’t it all a shame.

Opher – 2.10.2018

I wrote this for the Tory conference as they were all vying for position as we come to the last bend.

The manoeuvring is nearly done. The knives are out.

Brexit is in sight.

When they’ve successfully blamed her for the mess they’ll hang her out to dry.

Anybody who is under the illusion that this anything to do with what is best for us, the people, needs to wake up. This is all about power, nothing more. They’ll sell their granny for a few more votes.

The Lying Blunderer Boris Johnson!!

They call him Boris because it presents a soft cuddly image. He tousles his hair and acts the fool because it presents the image of a bit of a rascal.

The reality is different.

This man is a lazy, overprivileged, lying, devious disaster. All he is interested in is himself, power and wealth. What a conman!

128,000 deaths are attributable to him!
