“Sunny Ways” Becomes Nasty Ways in Nonsenseland

Nonsenseland’s parliament, the House of “right honourable’ and “honourable” persons, erupted into a bedlam of fury, shouts, threats, reported assault, obscene language and other disgraceful behaviour unbecoming of this land of “democracy.”
It seems the Leader of the land was about to limit debate on the “Assisted Suicide Bill,” or to phrase it truthfully, the Bill to Kill.  This caused outrage amongst the opposition.

Then the Land’s right honourable leader strode arrogantly and purposefully across the floor of the House and reportedly “manhandled” another honourable member. One female member claimed she was assaulted in the chest by the leader’s elbow, surely a sad and sorry state of affairs perpetrated by a “sunny ways” gentleman who claims to be a “feminist.” Another member was reportedly told to get the f*** out of the way. It appeared this Bill to Kill was causing the rise of unpleasant feelings amongst the “honourable” members. But hey, contemplating killing should be unpleasant.

Here they were discussing the killing of helpless people, and the leader of the land was trying to limit debate. What was his hurry? Most of the “honourable” members were all in favour of the Bill to Kill, could he not let them have a little bit of limelight on the House floor? After all, they all like to speak supportive political platitudes on this Bill to Kill, and some even want the Bill on Killing to be expanded to allow others to be “kindly dispatched.”

Still, there was a Supreme Court deadline (no pun intended) to be reached, and perhaps that was why the Land’s leader was in a hurry to get all this death dealing over with. After all, there are people waiting to be killed “compassionately,” so perhaps an excuse can be made for the “sunny ways” of the leader turning nasty, because he was worried about the judicial deadline (again no pun intended).

Therefore, before all this blame is heaped upon the Leader of Nonsenseland becoming nasty, why don’t we put some blame on the appointed unelected judges where it all began. They were the ones who gave the elected government of Nonsenseland a deadline to bring in killing. They are the ones who perverted the land’s Charter that has a “right to life.” Nowhere does it have a “right to kill.” They invented a “right” to kill and now the leader of the land has lost his head in anger, perhaps under pressure from the court’s deadline.  His “sunny ways” has turned into nasty ways. If he and all the other MPs had the courage to use the Not-Withstanding Clause in the Charter they could prevent this abomination by dictatorial judges. But, courage appears to be lacking. Therefore, is all this nonsense an example of the want of ethics, morality and principles in Nonsenseland’s parliament?

For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.
