Why Shouldn’t Muppets Rule The World?

Imagine if the muppets won elections. Let’s just consider that idea for a moment. What if the actual muppets legitimately took control of actual countries? A government of muppets sounds too far flung an idea to be realistic. Or does it?

The Muppet Show isn’t that far fetched when considering politics.

Kermit could easily grab some votes with his fun anecdotes and rhetoric. I could imagine him taking on a senior position such as Chancellor or Home Secretary. He would share the wealth, at least. Let’s face it, he would be single minded and considerate. Not like the money grabbers we often have looking after our finances – increasing our taxes while avoiding paying them themselves.

Fozzy bear would make a great Foreign Secretary. His charm and appeal would allow him to schmooze foreign leaders and his humour would enable him to earn their favour and drive some great deals.

As for Miss Piggy, she would be amazing as Prime Minister or President. I can already envisage her instagram, posing in government buildings and shoving the Downing Street cat to one side, not enabling anyone to upstage her. And as for parties… she would have loads of fun while letting our policies go down the drain. Not much different from what is actually happening right now.

Animal would rock his way into parliament and provide crazy nights of live music at the White House. He could be a good Health Secretary with his wild abandon and laid back attitude. I can see him promoting ‘health care for everyone’ and blowing his budget quickly. At least his intentions would be worthy. Wouldn’t they?

As you can tell, there would not be much difference if our governments were replaced by the Muppets. Politics would be more entertaining while the same old mistakes were being made. At least the Muppets would be genuine leaders, not self-obsessed and detached from the real struggle of paying extortionate energy bills.

I originally wrote this on Ko-if but enjoyed it so much and now have decided to include it within my blog. I hope you enjoyed it and can suggest some other muppets who could replace world leaders and possibly do those jobs better.

Banned Books & The Freedom To Read

This is some interesting research and a very powerful article. I am shocked to think that such censorship takes place these days. I would like to think that representation of diversity of culture is readily available to all who want to read.

When you hear about certain books being restricted or banned from schools, libraries and bookstores; it conjures up an image of writing that’s dark, …

Banned Books & The Freedom To Read

Freedom Day? Really, UK?

The party may not lead to happiness.

You may call it Freedom Day,

But Covid hasn’t gone away,

A lot of people still shall suffer,

And all this means is less to buffer.

Thousands rushed to nightclubs to dance,

Ripped off masks and took others’ chance,

Of actual freedom away in a flash,

Merely by acting so selfish and rash.

We need to look after each other dear friends,

Or this situation won’t tie up loose ends,

Let’s be a little less quick to party and chill,

For some, Covid matters and some it may still kill.
