Westminstenders: Charge!!!!

Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
“Forward, the Light Brigade!
Charge for the guns!” he said.
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

“Forward, the Light Brigade!”
Was there a man dismayed?
Not though the soldier knew
Someone had blundered.
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die.
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon in front of them
Volleyed and thundered;
Stormed at with shot and shell,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of hell
Rode the six hundred.

Flashed all their sabres bare,
Flashed as they turned in air
Sabring the gunners there,
Charging an army, while
All the world wondered.
Plunged in the battery-smoke
Right through the line they broke;
Cossack and Russian
Reeled from the sabre stroke
Shattered and sundered.
Then they rode back, but not
Not the six hundred.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon behind them
Volleyed and thundered;
Stormed at with shot and shell,
While horse and hero fell.
They that had fought so well
Came through the jaws of Death,
Back from the mouth of hell,
All that was left of them,
Left of six hundred.

When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
All the world wondered.
Honour the charge they made!
Honour the Light Brigade,
Noble six hundred!

Thanks, red 😂 💐

I suspect BJ, Cummings, Raab et all would all shit themsleves at the sound of cannon

They've set the rest of the country running into the cannons of the RoW, while sitting back themselves and waiting to rake in their hedge-fund bets on the casualties

Dorian Linskey adapted Memphis Blues by Bob Dylan this week.
Something like:
"Oh mama can this really be the end?
To be stuck inside of brexit with the crash out blues again."

Pride Mat King.

Almost managed an entire day not thinking about Brexit at my local pride event with DDs and various additional teenagers, but back to the grindstone...

PMK with my boy posing on the William Morris.

BigChocFrenzy Sun 11-Aug-19 17:36:02

Shocking that we rely on crowd-funding a private legal action by MPs to stop a PM shutting down Parliament confused

Our democracy seems held together by old string and rubber bands - and some Brexiters decided to start cutting sad

Pmk with someone else's cat. It doesn't give a fuck.

I've set up a jam jar for my Brexit 50ps. No idea what to label it.

Any suggestions?

My first thought was:

Fuck off to the far side of fuck and when you get there, fuck off some more.
