Ms. May is reported heavily engaged in rehearsals for the new opera, due to open in London October 31.

At the same time, a melange of parliamentarians is re-thinking Mr. Johnson’s call for a new election.

They suggest voters be offered the following choices:

*Hard Brexit

*Soft Brexit

*Brexit with a cherry on top

This last option will allow any future election results to be challenged for up to five years (extensions possible) if a significant minority does not like the results.

Moreover, the director of Ms. May’s opera, Maxwell Finister, has stepped forward with further analysis.

Mr. Finister is just finishing his thesis at Cambridge University: “Defrockracy sweeps the West.”

An essential passage:

Unlike “democracy” the new movements embrace “defrockracy,” with analogy to the centuries-old tendency to defrock a previous authority.

The past three years have seen noticeable efforts from significant forces outside a national election’s results to undo and deny those results.

In the US, a so-called “Russia-gate” movement proposed that the 2016 election had been stolen by another country.

But increasing evidence shows the story was mostly created by internal US intelligence agencies with the cooperation of mainstream news sources.

In the UK, a majority calling for exit from the European Union has been rejected, obfuscated, delayed, maligned.

The essence of “defrockracy” is to replace “democracy” with “wiser heads who know better than the electorate in a general election.”


Meanwhile, former Prime Minister of the UK Theresa May has been deeply involved in her starring role for the new opera “Schadenfreude in the afternoon,” opening October 31.

According to early observers, with the opera now in its final preparatory stages, Ms. May’s “soaring soprano” raises the hair on the backs of their necks.

Shivers run down spines for several minutes as Ms. May reaches an “operatic high” in the following:

With joy and sadness I see the results of Boris . . .
As with myself and from the arse-end of horses . . .

Ms. May is reported willing to travel to New York for additional performances, at the right price.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
