Austin Mitchell For Poet Laureate?

Austin Mitchell  is well known and admired by WLR for his insight into the Brexit saga, such as when he recently referred to the “Amazing crowd of Euro MPs outside Parliament all waving flags in the hope of keeping their jobs”. And now he’s turned his hand to poetry, below. If I remember right he must be 84 now, surely the right age for the poetic accolade? 

“The Blairs and the Mandies.
The Osbornes and their ilk
Get paid
MEPs and MPs the same
But the desperate flag wavers
The Euro daft crazies
And naive Liberal ladies
Are only the pawns in their game”.
