Arise, Baron Mugabe

Posted March 27, 2014 into Blunty by John Birmingham

Sir Anthony Abbott promised us a Golden Age of Satire, my friends. And he has delivered. Forsoothe he didst provide two blogs for the price of one, and one of them early:

Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen, the disgraced and deceased premier of Queensland would have heartily, if incoherently endorsed Tony Abbott’s disinterring of the imperial honours system. His corrupt, convicted former police chief ex-Sir Terry Lewis will be giddy with excitement, never having felt quite right about having his first knighthood stripped away with his belt and shoelaces at the prison gates.

Perhaps Sir Terry could arise again. After all, it must be dreadfully embarrassing to be lumped in with the Annulled Honorary Knights Grand Cross of the Order of the Bath Sir Nicolae Ceau?escu, Lord Robert Mugabe and Baron Benito Mussolini

At Blunty.

If you're wondering why I went back for a second bite of this sweet, sweet cherry, it's because Fairfax asked me to. A day early.

I think there's only one word that can convey the sentiment that comes bubbling up with all of this... stuff.

Mr Abbott's ears are getting bigger, pointier, and pinker over time. I fear he is turning into either Pinnochio inverted or the Easter Bunny. Bummer.

Lady Joanna waves, white lace gloves untainted by rabbit kisses.

Arise, yon dastardly surly JB.
