Lying down on the job…
It’s been an unedifying week for political debate in the UK as Boris Johnson’s attempt to ape the populism of Donald Trump took centre stage. However, his supporting act of Jacob Rees-Mogg took it to a new low, with puerile insults aimed at those who disagreed with him, so much so that, seemingly, one member of his own political party considered him to be an able recruiting sergeant for the opposition. (True and, no doubt, that helped the opposition win the day).
Perhaps that was also due, in part, to his subsequent rather louche display of contempt for proceedings in the House of Common when he lay down across the green benches with, at times, a smug grin on his face whilst listening to a crucial debate on the issue of Brexit.
Quite rightly that brought fierce criticism from parliamentarians (of all sides) and the public alike. It also inspired this…
A politically right-wing upstart
Showed the world that he’s not all that smart,
‘Cos that posh demagogue,
Had to lie as his plan fell apart!
