‘PARLIAMENT’

Parliament, Parliament

The place of rules and arguments 

I thank the Lord that I’m not part

Of all that palaver in Parliament 

 

Now politics for me is a waste of time

I’d rather have a pint or a glass of wine

You can keep your Tories, Liberals

and Green’s, Labour, UKIP and the SNP.

 

Question time, a live debate,

you can see it on the telly if you stay up late,

it can get quite heated, when they’re all wound up,

only a matter of time till there’s a right punch up.

 

Parliament, Parliament

The place of rules and arguments 

I thank the Lord that I’m not part

Of all that palaver in Parliament

 

Brexit dominates all the headlines

At breakfast, dinner and even bedtime 

With all that’s said and the silly goings on

Who needs a nightcap or a Mogadon?

 

So yes politics for me is a waste of time

I’d rather have a pint or a glass of wine

You can keep your Tories, Liberals

and Green’s, Labour, UKIP and the SNP.

 

Parliament, Parliament

The place of rules and arguments 

I thank the Lord that I’m not part

Of all that palaver in Parliament!

P.S. I watched my DVD of that superb naval action film "Master and
Commander" again the other night and was delighted to note a line
of dialogue from the hero Captain Jack Aubrey which I think most appropriate to this blog.
"As rare as an honest man in Parliament".
Elsewhere, I have used the term "A Deceit of Politicians" to give this particular entity a collective reference.

Thanks all for the comments. Although a ‘send up’ parody, it was significant that once the ‘contemp’ vote was over, there was only a handful of MPs in the House to listen to some very important speeches, I sort of rest my case...😀

An understandable "take" on the current state of politics here in the
UK. But, as Churchill observed, the existing entity is better that the
alternative...a bit like life and death!
The really regrettable aspect is that much of what is being witnessed
now is the result of elected politicians forgetting their proper job of
remembering where they get their power from and setting out on a
course that persuades them to believe they have the "right" to give
that power away without explaining what they're up to.
Imagine any government minister telling constituents "Thanks for the
power you've invested in us. We're now going to give that away to
others you didn't vote for so they can make decisions that affect
your lives. Sorry - what was that? Did you say 'You must be joking'? Well. actually, don't tell anyone - but we're serious."
