Good and Bad News
Yay ! to having a woman Poet Laureate Boo! to having a poet laureate at all.
I think a national poet is not a bad idea but hymning praise on Charlie “I’m NIMBY me” Windsor and Harry “Yah, I found it in my great uncles closet bladdy well fits perfectly even had the armband” Ginger nuts, is no fit job for any moral being.
As usual poetry is the best way to say this, so over to Tony Harrison and his thoughts on the subject.
