Perfidy of an ex-cop snake, In the caldron boil and bake; Matron’s stories told defy the truth, Gropes remember’d from their youth, Liz Dux’ ego, and Meirion’s sting,— For a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

The Guardianistas are on holiday. Only their corpus – their spiritual souls are still swarming across Twitter expressing outrage. A moment’s pause in motion brings the fingertips skating across their touch screen. “Oh do look Jeremy, Martha has posted pictures of their villa – just look at those sunflowers!” Every restaurant within 100 miles of here […]
