The Special Meaning of Being Whipped in the British Parliament
The Conservative Party enforcers put the screws on elected representatives known to be in support of the Repeal Bill that begins the unravelling of the UK’s laws from EU legislation.
The parliamentary party Whips are euphemistically described as “team managers”, which must explain the reluctance of this blogger to be a member of anything.
During the current fight to Britain’s death, aka Brexit, the ruling party Whips reduced “a female MP to tears”. That’s how it’s reported in all the press, from blue to pink to red. Not “reduced an MP to tears” but a “female” MP.
Don’t take me there, the trampled shrine where the true victims lie speechless and forgotten.
“Calm down, dear?”
Artemesia corrected you years ago.

I’m sorry I don’t have more to say… but the painting is beautiful.
