where the writers are
Cameron's Coffee

Cut him some slack
He's got the knack
To make a public display
Of his conscience at play
The waitress at Tuscan
Did not recognise the PM of Britain
Serve yourself, she did pip
He left no tip
But as to the manor born
He felt the need to atone
A week aft on his Italian holiday
He returned to the very same cafe
Fransesca was delighted
She felt like she was being knighted
He asked her not to worry
She thought he was luvvrly
The coffee again warmed h'm
Far from burning Tottenham
While Berlo's doing the bunga din
David won't give in to such sin
Don't grudge him a little vacation
He is only marketing the good ole nation
He'll be back home soon
To set right those goons
Nibbling on the in-flight chicken liver pate
He's sure it's never too latte

The good ole nation

Smiling from ear to ear again, Farzana. You strike such a lurrvly balance between cheeky and sardonic. Arrgh to Davo and marketing the nation. Sometimes it's hard to distinguish a 'to the manor born' goon from the rest of the goons. Imagine what one could do with a hot latte....

Thanks, Cindy.

The elite goons are quite indistinguishable to the studied eye, but they get away with it. I was quite simply revolted by the 'Nero fiddling while Rome burned' attitude, more so because mainstream media was discussing his coffee date with pictures.

I'd skip the latte and like to empty a hot cup of cappuccino on his head and let the froth do the talking.

all froth and no substance

Such a fabulous image. Don't get me started about the mainstream media. The only comment from DC that I agree with is that this is "sickening". However, I would be describing  different "criminal" behaviour.

Cheers, Cindy

Precisely, Cindy. It is all

Precisely, Cindy. It is all about froth, and the mainstream media works hard at it. Have written a longish piece. 


Have a good weekend.

Perhaps this is why our Constitution prohibits the granting of any titles of nobility. We'd sort of gotten our fill by the time we had that little spat a quarter millennium ago.

As you were. :)

Ah, Eric, but what about noblesse oblige?

Of course, I recall that spat. But frisson often results in depletion, so what's filled up?
