Singing Sad Songs

As the Conservatives and others get under way to undermine their efforts to be popular with the electorate by appearing and saying things live in public we still discuss the implications of the Labour fest of last week.

One aspect is that the Labour suggested policies are being compared to other states where such things as they promise have come unstuck in many ways, Venezuela in particular.

Along with this are the inevitable comparisons with leading figures from history and the past, with as ever extreme cases being suggested, badly wrong as usual.

This is a pity because it detracts from sensible discussion and there are so many people of the past who might better fit the bill. Mr.Jeremy Corbyn and Ms. Diane Abbott are a case in point.

One preferred pair could be Juan and Eva (Evita) Peron of Argentina, seen above with J & D. "Don't cry for me, Argentina" is a song available on Youtube at around five minutes.

Personally, I wonder if King Charles I and Queen Henrietta Maria of France might be better? It would be very pro Europe and accede to Rome.

Jeremy might then read the works of Dr. Jeremy Taylor with advantage .

  1. There are many works Jeremy might read with advantage. Too late now though.
