Pride's Purge

(satire – sort of)

Slow roasted fillet of Boris served on a bed of his own lies


  • 1 4-pound fillet of fatty Boris
  • 1/4 cup unadulterated truth
  • 1 teaspoon kosher information
  • 1 tablespoon pure facts
  • 1 small drop of erudition


  1. Remove Boris from all protective cover 30 minutes before roasting is due to take place. Preheat studio lighting to 500° F and truss him up in the centre of the studio where he can’t escape.
  2. With surgical precision, expertly fillet the Boris of all affectations, carefully making sure you trim him of any remaining pretensions to be prime minister that may remain stuck to the fatty flesh.
  3. Spread the truth evenly on all sides of the Boris fillet. Sprinkle with plenty of facts, evidence, and unadulterated veracity. Then slowly start to grill the Boris in a studio chair over high heat; the Boris should go red and start…

Neil Kinnock Speech from 1983

“If Margaret Thatcher is re-elected as prime minister on Thursday, I warn you.

I warn you that you will have pain – when healing and relief depend upon payment. I warn you that you will have ignorance – when talents are untended and wits are wasted, when learning is a privilege and not a right.

I warn you that you will have poverty – when pensions slip and benefits are whittled away by a government that won’t pay in an economy that can’t pay.

I warn you that you will be cold – when fuel charges are used as a tax system that the rich don’t notice and the poor can’t afford.

I warn you that you must not expect work – when many cannot spend, more will not be able to earn. When they don’t earn, they don’t spend. When they don’t spend, work dies.

I warn you not to go into the streets alone after dark or into the streets in large crowds of protest in the light. I warn you that you will be quiet – when the curfew of fear and the gibbet of unemployment make you obedient.

I warn you that you will have defence of a sort – with a risk and at a price that passes all understanding.

I warn you that you will be home-bound – when fares and transport bills kill leisure and lock you up.

I warn you that you will borrow less – when credit, loans, mortgages and easy payments are refused to people on your melting income.

If Margaret Thatcher wins on Thursday, I warn you not to be ordinary. I warn you not to be young. I warn you not to fall ill. I warn you not to get old.”
