A democratic tide

When the Cons begin complaining that the BBC’s reporting is hyperbole
And yet the Public, in the absence of a proper Opposition,
Hoped and prayed and waited for the needed contradictions to come forth from out its frightened, tight-lipped mouth,
But would not,
Or, indeed,
Any bloody statistician, politician, journalist with clout
And reasonable questions – even useful and alternative suggestions –
Could not,
Not for love nor money, get the airtime and the platform with the nation’s
For almost the entirety of one disastrous Parliamentary Term,
You know it’s nearly over for that
Flat Earth,
Most witless party –
Even dare yourself to think
A democratic tide begins to turn.
