My Election Notes 2019: E -Day-39

by Pseud O'Nym

As with the last general election, I’m going to try and post every day and much like 2017, this will mean my posts won’t always be as polished as they might be, the thoughts and the ways in which they are expressed might not be as coherent as they might otherwise have been, had I not been labouring under a self-imposed deadline.

As evidence of this, my post today was going to about something else, but upon writing out ‘E-Day-39’ another thought struck me. Given how our unloveable rogue though ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ was a metaphor for Brexit. might I suggest that ‘The 39 Steps’ is an even better one for this election.

The film based on a potboiler of a rabble rousing thriller with the express intention of promoting a jingoistic sentiment by  pitting a plucky Englishman against beastly Germans. I must confess to not having read the book, but in the most recent adaptation of the book by the BBC, the Liberals were portrayed as well meaning but ultimate gullible fools. So no change then.
