David Mitchell’s Flush


[Illustration above from yesterday’s The Sunday Observer]

I have written previously about my Monday morning breakfast pleasure of reading Stewart Lee’s satirical sketches from the day before in the new review, see here.

Today’s [yesterday’s] was written by David Mitchell, as is the norm when Lee, having a regular short break, hasn’t penned one. Like a number of repeated attempts to flush away that clog in the base of a toilet bowl, Mitchell’s lengthy metaphor regarding the theft of the golden loo from Blenheim Palace took forever to arrive at some sort of satisfactory conclusion.

That this was regarding the turd which is David Cameron and recent media confessions in support of hawking his autobiographical stench of a memoir, just about saved the satirical day.
