Topsy Turvy

Topsy Turvy


He planted his pennant
and proudly declared
I claim this, the high moral ground.

But when he looked up
all Spaffer could see
were the multitudes, looking down.

Hi Not,
If I'm understanding the blinkered mindset/perspective, would he ever 'see' the viewpoint of others? 'Everyone else', is he that isolated? Or are the divides more tribal?

cheers

Hi mac,
thanks for the read.
more tribal - not sure, there seemed to be something of a 'cross-party' consensus/incredulity at his decision to use the word 'moral' recently, which was enough for this cartoon.

Regards, Not

Fair enough Not. Recent history has shown that the biggest danger to a Tory PM are his fellow Tories! :lol:

Hi mac,
thanks for returning.
Been thinking about 'everyone else' - would
all Spaffer could see
were the multitudes, looking down

be better?
