bust-up reports politically motivated While members of the public stare at the unfolding horror, party-goers are claiming anyone who wants to complain about the whole offensive racket is a traitor to democracy. These same pe
ople want 0.2% of the population to choose the leader of a minority government that is at less than 20% in the polls in order to force a constitutional change the majority of people dont want. This partys idea of democracy, and indeed treachery, is different from yours. Those rubber-necking the chaos, and lapping up every bit of the nationally-remarkable row, are tutting and saying its awful that people are so nosey, while discussing the ins and outs at length on social media, fuelled by bots, ignorance and tribalism. Above it all circles the Sky Newscopter - the BBC ones still grounded - and people have started asking themselves whether someone should ring the police. Not sure the police can be arsed with this one, TBH (Image: Dan Kitwood) Unfortunately, the police have been called to this particular party several times already. They were called by a Home Secretary who told them to stop crying wolf, called to be told theyd be cut back, called to control people the party didnt approve of, and then called to protect Donald Trump from the possibility of being touched by a milkshake. The police say this party can sort itself out. They have multiple ear witnesses, but say thats not enough to do much with. Theyve advised everyone to be calm and departed, knowing full well people will soon be lynching the neighbours. The mob has now split into two factions - those who are pro-suicide, and those who are really for it. One camp is led by a man who looks like an elongated rabbit, and the other by a man who looks like a walking laundry hamper filled with unmentionables. Hmm. Which is which? (Image: AFP/Getty Images) Both want the party to deliver on its promise to be a really great party, by leaving the place in which it has found a reason to exist. The party they want to be in charge of is, lets remember, filled with people whove overdosed on Winston Churchill and port. The invitations say it is the party of law and order, yet its loudest exponents say a screaming woman is no cause for concern. They say this party is great for business, while agitating for it to be led by a man who shouts f*** business! and who is, in turn, now supported by another man who said f***, f*** business. Thered be a nicely anarchist dance track to be had here, but theyve confiscated their own recording devic

tter. PUTCHO HANDZUP IN DAIR (Image: AFP/Getty Images) The party has one or two embarrassing guests. If theyre not making freelance foreign policy with Israel or claiming that hate speech is just for snowflakes, theyre being convicted of crimes. Most parties would not invite criminals to represent them. This one has decided to approve the criminal to stand for re-election by the same voters who just recalled him, presumably because they think dodgy expense claims are minor compared to everything else thats going on. Stand back a little, tune out the noise, and its clear this is a party that has gone catastrophically round the bend. The only reason it has our attention is because the Labour Party at the opposite end of the street is a disaster thats slightly less extravagantly mad. The Tories are ignoring the majority of the electorate who now want to Remain. They treat those who have voted for them already with disdain, expecting them to re-elect criminals and charlatans. And the only blows theyve landed, of late, are on each other. And whose fault is that (Image: Getty) You may have forgotten, but this party was once competent. It was for strivers, the majority, the centre ground. But where it was once family-friendly, its now X-rated with frequent scenes of violence, criminality and plotting likely to cause disgust. If the Tories were a real party, the police would have broken it up by now. If they were a person, theyd be in need of the Samaritans. And if they manage to form another government, it will be lucky if it survives until Christmas. The party is more chaotic than the inside of Boris Johnsons car. It is a case of domestic abuse on a national scale - angry men vying for control of an ideal they cannot admit is doomed, blaming everyone but themselves as their victims struggle to find the perspective needed to see whats really happening. The party is over. Everyone in it lost their dignity som
e time ago. The only question is whether the raving, Spitfire-crazed mob is destroyed within weeks by a dumb blond, or in months by a mindless brunette. If you ask the neighbours, theyll tell you the sooner its over the better. Pick the blond.
