Does nobody get the irony?

There’s a deliciously British irony about the fact that on Thursday we will turn out in droves to elect UKIP candidates as Members of the European Parliament – the very people who believe we shouldn’t belong to it!

The other part of the irony is that MEPs have no direct influence over the UK’s membership of the European Union and only Westminster would be able to take the country out of it. And UKIP currently has no MPs!

I don’t know what to make of it. Either this is evidence of our wonderful sense of humour, or, more likely I fear, we’re living in a post-irony era and nobody gets it!

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
