Decline and Fail

John Crace

Widespread rejoicing at the magnificent Tory landslide on 12th December 2019 has scarcely abated in Clydesdale during these last few days before Christmas. Epic drinking, feasting and splurges of spending have been bacchanalian. Champagne corks could be heard popping wildly in all the douce villages squatting like frogs around the foot of Tinto. Life can only get bitter. With Slade, Wizard, Mud, Greg Lake, Johnny Mathis, The Pogues and Bing Crosby as the soundtrack to the festivities, we can all now look forward to a blighter future.
