Theresa May (nee Brasier) with her beloved parents circa 1967
Britain's esteemed political leader, The Right Honourable Theresa Mary May swept to power last year following the departure of Derek Cameron who had shamefully led his people into the great hollow Cave of  Brexit like The Pied Piper of Hamelin. 

Mrs May likes to keep an exceptionally low profile, so low it is almost subterranean. In the run up to the EU referendum, her silence was deafening. 

Downing Street spin doctors and advisers have been urging Saint Theresa to embrace modern technologies in order to enhance her low key public image. Reluctantly, she recently opened a Twitter account and here we find some of her first tweets. Explanatory notes to follow. Please read from the bottom up.

  4. Derek Cameron??? who's he? Get your names right YP, before you try to be too clever.
    I shan't bother to read this because I think that the poor woman has been thrown to the wolves, and is to be used as a scapegoat when it all goes wrong! As it will.
    I know you are a Socialist, and wonder if you would be so unpleasant about Corbyn?. No doubt in your mind Tony Blair was God. I'm afraid that I find your vitriolic rhetoric unpleasant, as I'm sure others must.
    Stick to your walks.

    1. Derek Cameron was obviously deliberate CG! Sorry you don't like my satirical treatment of Theresa May but on this blog I will post what I want to post and will not be dictated to by anybody. That is one of the beauties of blogging. There will be walks, photos, film reviews, poems, political reaction, memories, reflections on the news etc etc.. That's Yorkshire Pudding.

    2. By the way CG, my thoughts about Tony Blair are contained in a post I wrote in November 2015. No - I do not consider him a "God" as you put it. See:-

  5. Mrs May's parents must have been very early Star Trek fans. Her mother is wearing a Tribble (see episode "The Trouble with Tribbles" for reference) and her father sports a Spock-like uniform shirt under his jacket.

    1. I wish someone would beam her up.

  6. OK, that photo of Theresa May in 1967 is wild. She has the same face now! (Which I suppose shouldn't be entirely surprising.)

    I don't get the "Derek" Cameron joke, though. Maybe my Americanness impedes my understanding of subtle British humor. :)

    1. Putting Derek instead of David was not a big deal. Derek is a more homely, dated name and not a name one would expect an Old Etonian prime minister to bear. Besides, giving Cameron a different forename makes him seem forgettable, ordinary and that is the legacy he deserves.

  7. Ditto my previous comment for a spoof Theresa May Twitter account. But for political balance why not one poking fun at Jeremy Corbyn? Oh I forgot - he's doing such a good job of making himself look silly.

    1. That's right Ian. It would be cruel to put Mr Corbyn in the spotlight. One must be kind to the unfortunate.

  8. I'm not sure if you've seen my response to your comment on my bloc, Yorkie...but I also added the following to it:- "Yorkie...on further thought, just to clarify - Mr. Wypow's name was pronounced - "Whip-oh"....not "Wipe-OW". :)

    1. Your "bloc"? Are you turning French Lee? Thank you for clarifying the pronunciation of Mr Wypow's name.

      Delete
    2. We all make typos, Yorkie. We all make mistakes. I'm sure you're not excluded from being guilty of doing so yourself.

      But that's okay, I've been mocked by experts...I can handle it! :)

    3. One of the things I have noticed about your writing is how clear and accurate it is. You very rarely make errors or typos. If you were someone who frequently made mistakes I would just ignore them. I know how sensitive some people can be about helpful correction.

  9. You were quite gentle with Theresa compared to the vicious throttling you gave the Donald. Or do you always pull your punches when your target is closer to home and you fear retaliation from May supporters?

    1. You misjudge me Mr Bee. Mrs May is skilled in melting into the background like grey wallpaper whereas The 47th President loves the limelight as his frantic twittering shows. I think my treatment of this controversial fellow has been mild and rather kind.

      Delete
    2. Correction: FYI, Donald Trump will be the 45th, not the 47th, president of the United States. Apparently you heard it here first.

      Delete
    3. Thank you for the correction Bob. Silly me!

  10. I haven't seen this lady in action so probably some of your satire is wasted on me, but I do love the twitter photo you've chosen. And I can't imagine paying that much for anything I'd put on my body, leather or not!

    1. What about a 35 year old fireman in boxer shorts?
