You’ve got to laugh, or you’d cry.




 You’ve got to laugh, or you’d cry.


Altogether now, sing along with me. (It doesn’t quite scan, but never mind – everything else is out of kilter!)


Oh, dear, what can the matter be?

Who will they choose Tory’s leader to be?

Seven entrants all claiming authority,

Everything’s up in the air!



They promise to give us a bright, shining future,

Something much better than we’ve got right now, that’s for sure,

But can we believe that their guarantees will endure

Longer than fun at the fair?



So it’s, oh, dear, what can the matter be?

What is happening to our security?

The laughing stock of the world we are set to be,

Led by clowns for eternity.

    1. I think we all looked away and hoped, with our fingers crossed . . . it didn't work!

    1. No, we've taken first place - not just the sick man of Europe but of the world, I fear.

    2. I just heard on the news this week that Boris is probably going to win your election there. He and T are almost twins with their hair & their ideas!!

  6. Unfortunately it"s true for the members of the Europmen Union the UK became a joke. It's even worse because people think that the EU leaders are far too good to the UK and that the UK wants everything without taking any responsibility. Cats are called "Brexit" because they don't know if they want to go in or out ! I think it would be a pity for the youth not to be able to study and travel without filling out 100 of papers !

    1. Cats are called Brexit. Brilliant. I shouldn’t be quite so flippant about it all because who knows what will happen to me. But you have to laugh otherwise you’d rip your hair out.

  7. It may be nonsense but true nonsense sadly! I never thought I would be in the position of preferring Jeremy Hunt for anything but I am!

  8. Well, they’ve whittled it down to two, but the big buffoon will probably get it. Some democracy. 160 000 mainly old, white, middle class, rural tories are going to determine the future of the country. Some democracy.
    But we will soon be in control again, Trump is showing us the way already.
