MacAesop’s Fables #11 – The Hawk, the Kite, and the Pigeons

Our eleventh Sunday outpouring of sanctimony and self-righteous morality to be taken as seriously as the Labouring party's attempt at electoral arithmetic.

Nationalism is power hunger tempered by self-deception. – George Orwell

THE PIGEONS, terrified by the appearance of a Kite, called upon the Hawk to defend them.

He at once consented.

When they had admitted him into the cote, they found that he made more havoc and slew a larger number of them in one day than the Kite could pounce upon in a whole year.

Analysis: So the kite is the Unholy alliance right. The hawk is the SNP. What could the moral of this commendably short fable be? That’s right, sometimes it’s best to:  “Avoid a remedy that is worse than the disease.”
