Menu uncertain, but it clearly involved a ham…
I see it all now…
You’re right, of course, John. Full media coverage with commentary by Gordon Ramsay and Maggie Beer. In-depth analysis by Phillip Adams, Greg Riordan those two chancers you see at the end of the 7:30 Report. CNN’s outside broadcast trucks skewed across the footpath and SWAT teams occupying nearby rooftops.
Inside, the ten of us gathered around the groaning table, rich with trucklements and vinous bibulations. The cameras outside zoom in as the long, thin blade whispers one last time across the steel. We’re about to carve; slow roasted politician with cockscombs and chestnuts, stuffed with a forcemeat of campaign contributions. Some prefer the loin, others the rump, but I always go for the trotters – so tender, so full of flavour!
Could we get Peter Greenaway for the video, do you think?
Paul, You don’t go far enough…
