has been talking to a budgie called Pipsqueak.
A parakeet ‘fresh out of Paradise’, Pipsqueak is a popinjay, a polyglot and a
polymath. And somebody has definitely been rattling his cage. Following in the
tradition of John Skelton's sixteenth century satire, Speak, Parrot!
Pipsqueak offers an irreverent commentary on the follies and failures of our
age – from bird-brains on twitter and tabloids parroting lies to politicians
between Rime Royal and satirical songs with medieval Latin choruses, Pipsqueak
gets his beak into Brexit, Trump, the refugee crisis, the rise of neo-Fascism, UK/Russian
tensions, USA/North Korean tensions, the royal wedding, the World Cup, the
Chequers agreement, cabinet resignations, the Windrush scandal, the implosion
of the Tory party and culminating in the seceding of the UK from the European
Union in March 2019. This is one sick parrot.
