UKRAINE SHORT COMMENTARY: IS BRITAIN GOING COMPLETELY BLUE-YELLOW?
The trend in the West currently is to paint everything blue and yellow to correspond with the Ukrainian flag. We just heard that Boris Johnson has had Number 10 Downing Street lit up in these colours. One wonders if he has also had his testicles, ears, hands and feet also coloured in the same fashion, perhaps he is considering one half of his body blue, the other yellow?
How far could this go?
Will the Queen of England sport one of her signature hats in blue and yellow? Will Prince Charles get his first new hairdo in seventy-odd years to match? Perhaps Buck Palace will get an imminent paint job and all the bowers and scrapers will be told they have new uniforms to wear while serving one’s evening meal.
All of Europe is now in a full-blown colour-frenzied state. Psychiatrists are busy commiserating with patients unable to make themselves as blue-yellow as they crave, being all too aware that those not emblazoned with a Ukrainian flag round their shoulders and eyelids to match are being outed, tarred (with blue and yellow tar of course) and feathered before being forever cancelled.
The River Thames has received its first few cement lorries on both banks, one emptying blue paint, the other yellow. No boat is allowed to pass through Tower Bridge without its mandatory Ukrainian flag (flying at half mast of course in honour of the Ukrainian neo-Nazis who have lost their lives thus far).
All roads in the United Kingdom are steadily having their white lines upgraded, especially those that are broken rather than unbroken, these are much easier to dot blue-yellow-blue-yellow rather than appearing as one great long streak of urine-looking effluent or blue cheese smear.
No speech is now made in the rather circus-looking atmosphere of the British Houses of Parliament without a ‘Slava Ukraini!’ being shouted at its beginning and end.
How long can it be before the British flag has a little more colour to it?
It won’t be long now the way things are going…
