Humbug!

“Humbug!”

he blusters

at those grieving,

speaking of murder;

the killing of Jo Cox

and every death threat after

by those using his words to gag;

to silence women who oppose him;

to make them fear for their own lives;

voices of extremism

made Johnson their mascot,

they clone expressions

he gives them still

to inflame,

he speaks

humbug.

On this, I’m 100% with Jess Phillips, Paula Sheffield & the MPs from every political party who are speaking up against the inflammatory language our Prime Minister uses, particularly in regards to fears by female MPs over death threats after the murder of their colleague Jo Cox. This goes beyond political divides and to the core of how the PM and some of his closest advisors operate. His strategy of whipping up hate is not OK; his words are being quoted in threats to life and safety of MPs who democratically oppose him.
