A single Rose…
…in a veritable bed of thorns.
I wonder which thoughts were upmost in the mind of Aung San Suu Kyi as she rose to address both members of the House of Commons and of the Lords’ yesterday?
Was she thinking of the words of her speech, which of course were obviously benign both in intent and delivery, or was she thinking, as I do, to question her very position amongst the politicians and other members of the ‘great and good’ who flocked to see this small icon of true Democracy.
Was she actually thinking, “What am I doing here in the very centre of this den of thieves, liars, prostitutes, perjurers and criminals?”
p.s. Wasn’t the music good!
