Speaker to resign
As we await confirmation, Cranmer has decided to pass away the hours with a little commemorative verse. It is fitting that such occasions of national celebration be immortalised in the fashion of 'Remember, remember the Fifth of November'.
His Grace is happy to versify his words earlier today:
If the Early Day Motion
never becomes a Substantive Motion,
then Andrew Motion
must pen an ode to the Brownian motion
by which Parliament was reduced to a bowel motion.
TS Eliot might have observed:
We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
And the new Poet Laureate Carol Duffy has offered:
What did we do with the trust of your vote?
Hired a flunky to flush out the moat.
His Grace looks forward to the literary creativity of his communicants.
