Clowning Street

by Jerome Betts

“Downing Street under Boris Johnson is ‘a branch of the entertainment industry’
and nothing will get done in terms of serious policy focus until he leaves,
Dominic Cummings has said in his latest blast at his former boss.”
The Guardian

Roll up for the Westminster Follies,
The Crazy Gang half off their trolleys!

Hopeless Hancock and Gove perform tricks
That involve a whole load of dropped bricks
While the yellow-wigged juggler’s balls
Are rolling all over the stalls
And an off-stage rejected Svengali
Entertains doing snarky and snarly!

It’s a great UK-breaking up show!
Come and see just how far they can go!
