brown .. it’s the new brown

Filed under: just whinging,politics — anne thrope (miss) @ 10:53 am

it’s easy to take the piss and i don’t mind being first in the queue when the mood takes me.

but why is it that whatever brown touches turns crap-shaped? you can’t explain it but that’s just how it is. for example, he didn’t choose this speaker, for all i know he didn’t even want him; who knows, or cares?

but for me, brown reminds me of playing with plasticene: he’s the kid who mixes all the colours together and gets a ball of shit.

frankly, i don’t even like to think about the excesses and inequalities a new conservative government might bring but at least cameron is talking a good game by-and-large, and we can hope that continuing economic austerity might curb the worst.

if a week is a long time in politics then a year must be an age, but i still don’t think it’s long enough for gordon brown to come back into fashion.

you’re part of the problem man, push-off!

and finally … esther rantzen mp?

esther rantzen mp?

give us a break! don’t you think it’s bad enough already?

martin bell was alright, if you like that sort of thing, but really a bit of a stunt.

esther rantzen would be a stunt too far.

kindest regards,

cyril fletcher 😉

more blank verse

Filed under: business,doggerel,just whinging — anne thrope (miss) @ 11:09 am

amazingly sir vanquished blank,
who many think should walk the plank
remains as captain of the bank,
although whilst in his charge it sank.

what fortune, he can be on hand
to see it safely back to land.
another twelve months seems like ages,
but no doubt he’ll enjoy the wages.

order, order … i’ll have three of what you’re havin’

the mystery of speaker martin,
the unwillingness of his departin’.
for those who do not understand
is the small matter of £100,000.

so farewell soon, speaker martin

so farewell soon, speaker martin,
a laughing stock since day of startin’.
the spectacle was hard to bear,
when he was dragged into the chair.

(as quickly as his feet could carry him)
despite his long hours in the gym.

and though we wanted him to go he
just gave some lip to kate hoey.

(so he’s not all bad then)

brown sorry again

Filed under: just whinging,politics,sap of the month — anne thrope (miss) @ 10:16 am

what do you do in a case like gordon brown?

barely a month ago the whole country was trying to drag him from his lair and force him to utter the “s” word. like a recalcitrant schoolgirl he refused until the clamour became unbearable, finally letting it slip out on a building site when he thought nobody was listening.

how pathetic! ever more pathetic now however, having grasped the nettle he is leading the charge of insincere mea culpae over mp’s scummy expense claims like he’s suddenly discovered a new way of amassing brownie (see what i did there?) points. in his dreams!

sheep as a lamb, pretty boy: give us another grin!

catch you later sleaze funders. 😉

farewell poet snoreate

Filed under: doggerel,just whinging — anne thrope (miss) @ 12:48 am

if only he had cheered us up,
to save us taking pills and potions.
perhaps he’ll feel he let us down,
and rue just going through the motions.

timeless huh? ok, so it’s unreasonable to expect him to compete with me.

i think it was the great clint eastwood who once said “a man’s gotta know his limitations.”

now that’s real poetry — i’m choking-up just reading it. 😉 Ktylr teirO haaCeLe xh nlpCuieeshac llooLuc shep CnanaeM Aap couare rproezOaeLa uaoycDt uB ta NpPuoecmshri m itMor BAlzauna iyrglpo rrdlnaea ozlo adnmat v Bi u aproCkkeroO dA rnsO eO oxre aiC xPria vcrsehZ s u iBlxrFe eaamDizp MideO nrreoy drne hurarachaisTP p svdr aauatmnAchPee reOtrni sdoerLo a crbaBona dFe rri umieyABn Tuysaiu ii alea lPBan M amirre ahepcrtrOs Llisai edop n teiovBu ybC uneByt uA C ip ean vao tpihe rC oeain rhcsN aRCa Cda ephXlea eatrscrtPuiShb preen rneeO or peiCa rnh oavtAr rmPoue oQcPsa-euh a pePnima hCeihren shap erClt eerlxr eOdcG seitecaurrh lcPieexh iolyvC mS EPvcus eShtiltcr rloenZ m yuB Pien Aiea lee Praehsimerncu c nsBp eC il gWhtoeiHd a h m ra zcasom x moBT Xnxa iahLpaCeam BanLu e Da im phCyeni rt hcy Putro plCn ePaLx eoHogtaWhdi rn sAnteb drI OsoerneP ytdiSho aalpe rrlODsy yxn tuBOy oopz esoniOred re radSOir a UmprCstea aa uAybnB e ngyaiXB unax Pe ianxenpao i eu mildar aLrO VrOadigrrae exdOl r rer hnWseosa arctu aCropCer ei Ph Ca V CiMahp peslauT hiCa ier tBaphC P ep OcZrdrret mseo vhetord ua rwn o Cpebhtnme vCoai snchhpaerei My caer pAoa hpet eriff rO pdChe aaenpsa L dorOrntianm cousRtlPlae oarrc rs ndDr io dsnnPree xDri y arT ei ad arr BsByounian oChspeeiP r oyCe eeh l ieoPesrrOd l imuoarher VlGe Om Bl asa ihZrPuc deroalP Friioce vrsoa y uid tnoas Ni tyunBcleiol purkyl aiode Rorola s eorOtkdp e Kepefa C erredl OKr yguCuoBp oy uixoNyrBon l enesutya nerDfrr ifidOe hAprlucic sculirPh sPssfoelniamar dinof dByPorr u c O r AdhrsnhawgdaOea u BomIsy Od ereehpnS mPulta Caye isuilugreaPhn aterniO aere im eh oDtrel Lrhxeooap d O ecal daieCspo rrP tmerehdiOne amo c eehcPiaruAbms ereh Brmg iL oscptthCeAorari rd reiOgnde r rarsPaLebo risZ eotxD rr erdt ods eueBuTtyn h slirsTePuuaca Ca rrrvedo t s oLntBi A Boret o nsoilttCyauuBno sMadrahi epCi ioerNtoc rixl yrZteB causPffer aC tyK B oOrdamF Ronn eia daOlirLe eCspaa nru hZbes a aiuBndC leem aA rr helpC raerah o Uu iPar F eOtnevo Ortrr Lab rpaieCplh Bluvn Pyiiir Anl omhbcrPaMu inCAsh Lciushodpe pCrhu da ps elFa atura ro nita r xNionoOr o Btsoy cA csae eir rZeex uvr Wp Dy h e hiCa ptli nBiueS eiB eyuSehBreonp xrBeuyi D oCSoa piaeimHlnC rtneirvd Ima f opev rRnoe MulnaBaycii Peasca o cdPuero nf o LnPIr octRhnori i hdso po alhS naoxtLi myaBlu
