Plenty of Corbynistas here, I’d guess.
In the leafy London suburb of Richmond (not to be confused with Richmond, Yorkshire, of which the “Sweet Lass” was a denizen), a nutty piece of Israel-demonising “street theatre” featuring old codgers in camouflage gear, elderly ladies swathed in what resemble the cast off medieval-style garments of that great English eccentric Dame Edith Sitwell, and bewildered-looking kids doing their best to follow the choreography.
Most busy shoppers give this bizarre Israel-demonising performance, the brainchild of the Kingston & Richmond Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) branch, a wide berth, cursorily glancing with puzzled looks, and then moving swiftly on, leaving the players and their keffiyeh-wearing cheerleaders to waste their sourness on the suburban air.
Vile as this sicko little drama is, I reckon the spectacular ham acting of the lady with the “heart attack” deserves a British Comedy Award!
