The time……..This morning
The place……..Tesco, Durham, by the newspaper stand
The slightly stunned observer……Yours Truly
An ordinary woman, accompanied by her young daughter, approaches the laid out dailies and red-tops on the news stand. Views the repeated photos of Prime Minister May on the front pages of just about all the newspapers, drags her daughter away from the Daily Mail, the Sun, the Scotsman, the Telegraph, the Daily Express, whilst repeating, and I swear this is true: “No, thats Treason; that is Treason, no, leave it be, that is treason!”
I am sometimes accused of having a closed mind. I can only reply that at least I have a ‘mind’; and sometimes I even agree with opponents; but never have I accused any political opponent of Treason.
