My biggest disappointment? Seeing

that the Monster Raving Loony party

had come last at Old Bexley & Sidcup.

No longer crazy enough, compared

to all the others. But then

I had a flash of realisation

(It doesn’t happen often). The

Monster Raving Loonies aren’t

bringing up the rear  – they’re

the biggest party in parliament!


Michael Fabricant, Bill Cash, Steve Baker,

Desmond Swayne, Edward Leigh,

Jacob Rees-Mogg, Priti Patel,

Michael Gove, Nadine Dorries …

led by the biggest

Monster Raving Loony

of them all!  And don’t forget the

latest government health advice:

Let the Christmas parties rip!

Snog the one you’re with!


Michael Fabricant is aged 71

Where is Screaming Lord Sutch when you need hin?
Merry Christmas, Greg.

I too rather like the idea that the Monster Raving Loony Party has had the ground under its feet stolen by the likes of Boris.

What's all this about impartiality, MC? There's no Write Out Loud rule about that. And you've always been up for a bit of political knockabout, as I recall. The term 'loony left' was common parlance in the 1980s, you may remember, although a lot of the polices they espoused then became accepted and mainstream a decade later. The years move on, and now we have the loony right. You're not seriously suggesting that all those mentioned above AREN'T lunatics, are you?! To widen the discussion further, we at Write Out Loud were once happy to report on your success in an anthology about cycling with a poem titled 'Lycra-clad loony'. Although we did avoid the word 'loony' in the headline, admittedly

Let me see if I've got this right about impartiality e.g. keeping
the balance.
It's OK to have a pop in one political direction but anything that
goes the other way is liable to be moderated...correct? Just asking - on past experience (I can give you the example)...and for future reference. KJ's closing lines in his comment are right on the money.

I seem to remember that a Monster Raving Loony Party candidate was elected to a local council some years ago, and became a competent, committed and hardworking councillor.

Your comment is interesting. I lived for two and a half years in Spain when General Franco was the dictator. A call from the Guardia Civil at 4am usually resulted in someone being taken away and never seen again. I was greeted frequently with the fascist salute and one had to respond accordingly without giving offence or getting into trouble. Russia, china and North Korea are in the same league. I was in HM Forces for ten years and awarded the Distinguished Service medal for a job where I was in a position of some authority on which people's lives depended. To criticise those we didn't vote for is to exercise free speech which I fought for and will never relinquish the right to.
Thank you again for your comment

I think you've identified the chief suspects, Greg, although I seem to remember that Mark Francois is well up the fruitcake league, not to mention Iain Dunkin Donuts. From where I am, the loonies have well and truly taken charge and seem to be revelling in it. I do remember some years ago that the demise of David Owen's SDP was confirmed when they finished behind the Raving Monsters in a by-election. Little did we know....

To all those (of any particular stripe) who have never been in a position of authority knowing full well that If you don't make the decision no-one else will, just give it a go for five seconds.
We're all guilty of slagging off those we didn't vote for, or whose actions we don't agree with, sadly the alternative is China, Russia or North Korea.

Thanks for your comments, Graham, Keith, Isobel, and MC. I've never claimed to be impartial, MC, just describe what I see. Point of order, Keith ... those refugees and asylum seekers are technically not 'illegal', as I understand it. Patel's lunacy stems partly from her lack of comprehension of, or refusal to accept that fact. She shares that failing with a lot of the great British public, of course. Which is maybe why the monsters are in power in the first place.

Hey - we are left to spot the absentees vying for power on the
benches opposite. Impartiality rules? KO! ?

Well said Greg! Not just mad but monstrously self serving and dishonest.

You must be slow on the up take. "A flash of realisation"! Where have you been all these years? Half wits and lunatics have run the country for years. The present coven of Blundering Boris, Priti Useless and Savid Who are the leaders of this great nation. We face a new variant and place severe restrictions on African countries as to who we will allow to enter this sceptered isle and then allow 20,000 illegal immigrants to land on our beaches, whose identities we know nothing about and who could have more covid variants than any Wuham Laboratory. Not to worry the rocky road to ruin is well assured and safe in their hands.
A good poem.
