I never lied in the rose garden. (Cummings and goings)

entry picture

Let's all have a sing-a-long

You all know the tune

If not hit the video link and open your windows wide

and sing your hearts out at the top of your lungs

 

 

 

I never lied in the rose garden

 

I beg your pardon!

I never lied to you in the rose garden

Sat in the sunshine

I rambled on for quite a long time

 

Why don’t you all just live and let live

Oh! let it go oh-whoa-whoa-whoa

I beg your pardon

I never lied to you in the rose garden

 

I packed all my things like big diamond rings

Hey, Boris, we’ll come out of this smelling just like your roses

This will all soon blow over

 

We’ll if I keep saying it, it’s got to be true

They’ll give us the world right now on a silver platter

fuck it, what does it matter.

 

So smile for a while Cos. were all jolly

Got lots of dosh lets have more Bolly

Nothing to see here, I’ve done nothing wrong

 

So I smile all the while let's forget my folly

Come on Boris I mean good golly

We can do what we like Cos. we can-a-ann

 

I don’t beg your pardon

I never lied in your rose garden

We had a great time

prancing about in the sunshine

 

I don’t  beg your pardon

I lied in your a rose garden

 

I’ll sing you this tune and promise you the moon

But if that's what it takes to keep my job

You’d better let me know

But there’s one thing people must never know

 

I’m pissed that people saw me in the driving seat    

But remember you said you’d always pull me out

You know what I’m talking about.

 

So I smile all the while, let's forget my folly

Come on Boris I mean good golly

We can do what we like because we can-a-ann

 

I don’t beg your pardon

I lied and lied in the rose garden

while we lied in the sunshine

 

There's gotta be a little lie sometimes,

I don’t beg your pardon

 

Hey! Boris, I love your rose garden.

Great work Po. I love the repetition. It sounded like two kids engaging in a conversation with a blend of playfulness and seriousness

I often wonder how much those who have left this world behind look back on us with such pity Nicola.

Thank you for dropping in, and holding her in your thoughts.

I love this line... "…”It's like the Cabinet are chained to a mad dog. Whenever it runs off barking somewhere, they're pulled along behind it, insisting this is exactly where they wanted to go on a walk in the first place”..


And from the master of spin…

… “Dominic is a lovely family man and we should now move on”. I mean, sorry… Do one, the lot of you….’

Well said Mr Campbell.

…‘ludicrous, ludicrous episode’ Bang on the money Alastair!

Mr Campbell branded it ‘utter hypocrisy’ and called the PM a ‘lying charlatan’ for his part in defending his chief adviser.

Who is still washing his hands of the whole episode

Good for you Boris keep washing those hands
Soap gets in your eyes song" playing in my head

Of course we must all remember that 'Boris has also got eye problems just like Dom' as a result of Covid.

More than one million people have signed a petition calling for Dominic Cummings to be sacked over allegedly breaching the lockdown rules.

Despite Downing Street's attempts to shift focus away from the row, hundreds of thousands of people added their names to the petition demanding that the prime minister fire his chief aide.

A repost of my comment on another thread...

I am having great trouble manning up at the moment.

The misdirection, lies, and deceit are not even trying to be hidden any longer. the masses are so brain dead from all the statistics every news item rams down our throats ... Ramping up how fantastic a job the government is doing.

The amazing NHS not being overwhelmed (I am NOT having a go the NHS here) Exactly the opposite is the case. The only reason they were not overwhelmed is because of the thousands of 'little people' who worked and worked and worked until they dropped (dead literally for some).

They have been so badly let down as have all the care sector.

The countless (because the true numbers will never be known) of elderly and infirm residents (the useless eaters) in homes right across England, Scotland and Wales who have died quite possibly a death that need not have happened if the correct PPE was available... AND The full truth told to the masses before the virus even hit our shores.

The 'Experts knew with 100% certainty what was coming down the track. This was a slow-motion train wreck of epic proportions.

That hit us like a whirlwind, a hurricane of such magnitude it flattened almost every single family in one way or another, and while the experts are saying we have flattened the cure (queue the back-slapping) thousands of families are and are about to count the real cost in terms of human suffering.

The debacle of Cummings has had me in tears all this week.

Man up!

If only I could.
