I remain incredulous that a reality TV celebrity was proclaimed president of the "United" States, but I'm still absolutely astounded "Great" Britain elected the Addams Family to its parliament. They call them the Conservative Party across the Atlantic, which is obviously some sort of Etonian euphemistic in-joke I don't understand. Nevertheless, the Conservative's creepiness and kookiness is plain for all to see.
The hierarchy of 0001 Cemetery Lane is clearly an endless game of snakes and ladders, and there is a degree of gender role reversal, but family members are easily identified with their ministerial equivalents. Theresa May recalls the character of Uncle Fester, albeit wearing a grey wig. Gomez is Michael Gove. Pugsley is none other than our old friend Boris Johnson and Wednesday is Liam Fox. The preposterous Jacob Rees Mogg easily fills the role of Morticia Addams. Thing, Cousin It, and Grandma maybe distributed among the back benches at whim.
It is a given nowadays that governments attempt to rule rather than govern. I suppose it is better to be ruled by a gold-plated phallus in the White House than Westminster's motley collection of grotesque cartoon characters. And how significant is it that the Conservative cartoon's origin is American not British? If the Tories truly desired to preserve their national heritage they would have retrenched into a panel from Osbert Lancaster's Drayneflete instead.
