Their Lips Move.

“We WILL have the vote!” She said.

All the advice was not to do it.

“I am not changing,

We Will have the vote!”

For weeks she would not be moved,

Her certainty was resolute,

There was no way she would change.

Then it happened,

Her promise was broken.

“We will delay the vote” she said.

So the proof is once more there,

Her promise broken,

So proving the answer to the question,

“How do you know when a politician is lying?”

“Their lips move!”

    Ahh, I must meet her and her hubby at coffee-time at church. They often go to one about 2 miles from my home - the current PM and her hubby. We could hob-nob!

      Hob Knobs are delicious.

        If I speak to the PM at church over coffee, her lips will move, so...………..? heehee.

        Another betrayal - I'll write something from the leavers perspective - after all they aren't represented in Parliament except for a couple of clowns - Johnson and Rees Mog . Will post tomorrow.

          Just written them - they might not go down well but an attempt to redress the balance.

          Spot on with your write!
          I don’t mean to speak ill of the dead, but ...
          “Watch my lips...”
          We did...and our taxes were raised!
          No matter what country I am in, the same outcry! It seems we’re at their mercy!

          My love to Joyce and to you!

          That Brexit is certainly a mess isn't it Andy. I don't understand why it is so complicated to unravel (or if it is the best thing) - but I think our hideous excuse for a president still tops Brexit for A number one end of the world disasters......... I feel I have to be constantly apologizing for this country. It's so embarrassing.
