The Winter of our Discontent

I won’t continue with the calumny that Mr Shakespeare then hurled at Richard III (yes, I am a HUGE fan of Josephine Tey’s analysis of the blackening of poor Richard’s name in her wonderful book The Daughter of Time), but it is truly apposite given the way that the msm has turned turtle and everything bad is new again – especially when it comes to pouring ever more shit onto Labor.

Like most (if not all) Pubsters, I am both shocked by the election result, and truly horrified by the media’s response to it.

Never mind, my friends, while The Pub and each Pubster and Lurker lives, we are all tiny candles burning in the wind, keeping the flame of hope alive.

Meanwhile, shall nick out and give Madame La Guillotine another grease, oil change, and honing.
