Lovely and Peaceful

Nigel, you’re lovely and peaceful

With your purr and the scurf on your lips:

With the tongue of a genial greaseball

Who’s snaffled his enemy’s chips –

 

There’s a light in each eye as you ponder

The dead and the dying. It’s pink:

You’ve the charm of an old anaconda

When he comes to a cess-pool to drink –

 

You’re so quick on the draw with extremists!

You spot them where no-one else can:

Refugees struggling through sea-mist

Are revealed to have murderous plans –

 

As you sit there, your hands seem to spread

As if casting out demons. Their sin?

They've never been born or been bred –

It’s as if they live under your skin –

 

In saloon bars, you speak of tradition,

Almost dancing the Roger De Coverley,

Always passing the British audition,

For you are so peaceful and lovely,

 

And the way that your tone is so placid,

So charming, so smooth and so spick –

And we laugh at your fountains of acid,

You vicious and self-serving prick.

Nigel Farage accused ‘Hope not Hate’, the charity supported by Jo Cox’s widower, thus:

“Well, of course, he would know more about extremists than me, Mr Cox. He backs organisations like Hope Not Hate, who masquerade as being lovely and peaceful, but actually pursue violent and undemocratic means.”
