Thank God for comedians to lighten those dark days.
First came the splendid news that our best known poet, Colin Craig, is appealing Justice Palmer’s decision that “enough is enough”. In fairness, this killjoy verdict was out of concern for the woman at the centre of the various Craig libel actions, who’d already endured three hearings.
But surely over-riding that humane decision was the wonderful entertainment value Craig provides. Doubtless had Justice Palmer known of the virus and our government’s injudicious response which lay ahead, he’d have come up with a different verdict.
But now comes the even better news that Jamie Lee (what sort of fairy name is that? He should have been unelectable) is to start a political Party.
If he turned up with Craig they could be responsible for resurrecting the old election mode of mass political meetings.
By election time the voters, impoverished and in desperate need for light relief, would turn up in their thousands. Colin could open with a love poem and have the women in the audience swooning. Ross advises he needs to warn us of the threat we’re facing from the Chinese Communist Party. My God, I’d pay to listen to that. He claimed no new Party has made it to Parliament without a current or former MP leading it. Has he heard of the Labour Party or Social Credit? Plainly not.
But no matter. It’s precisely these sort of utterances which would pull an audience.
I’ve been critical of God lately, pointing out his cock-ups. Plainly my observations have sharpened him up, thus the Craig and Ross announcements. Well done God. Take 10 marks.
