And then I go and spoil it all by saying something stupid like … “fag”???

(allegedly)

Birmingham City Council v Shakeel Afsar, Rosina Afsar, Amir Ahmed, Persons Unknown & John Allman

This post was set to be ultra-boring, but then something really unexpected happened.

I started writing this post from Court 205 at 33 Bull Street, Birmingham, on Monday.  Beside me to my left sat Shakeel Afsar.  In front of Shakeel was my barrister, Paul Diamond, and in front of me was another barrister from the nearby Halcyon Chambers, Tom Green, lending his services pro bono for the day.  He’ll be back tomorrow and Friday too.  Today, I sat on the end of the front row next to Paul, where Tom had been yesterday, at the right end of the front bench, directly behind the witness box. Directly behind me sat Shakeel Afsar, where I had sat yesterday.  The trial had been going well, in my opinion.

Learning that the British Prime Minister was seeking the EU’s permission to delay Brexit further and threatening to cancel it altogether if she didn’t get her own way (about which I hope to see her in court), I thought I’d add some extra verses to the o-o-ol’ negro spiritual I’d mentioned in my 2004 Houston speech.

Let my people go
Oppressed so hard they could not stand
Let my people go

Go down Moses
Way down in Egypt land
Tell old Pharaoh
“Let my people go”

There appears to some biblical support for this new doctrine in the following passage from the recently-discovered Gospel according to St Judas.

# Oranges and limes

The bells of York Minster sound out for Easter

“Oranges and limes!”, began one of the chimes,
“Ee, it’s good to be back, though m’ rope’s a bit slack.”

“What I want to know,” said the bell that sounds So,
“We was laid off, but what were t’ reason for that?”

“I don’t rightly know”, said t’ great bell tuned Do.

(False ending – i.e. slight pause, during which people who think the song has already finished may start to applaud, only to be interrupted by the the start of the next verse.)

“I’ve news about that”, piped oop t’bell tuned Bb.
“News?  Pray announce!”, clanged several at once.

#Catch50

The UK trying to leaving the EU may turn out to be like Captain Yossarian trying to leave the air force, in Catch-22.  I have written a song about this.

Here are the lyrics.
