Prince of Prada

By Mr Rushforth

Now that the ‘fellow of infinite jest’ is heading for the Prime Ministers’ Graveyard and others of his kind are vying for the crown, Mr Rushforth considers it only proper to offer this timely reminder to all concerned.

“So shall you hear
Of carnal, bloody and unnatural acts,
Of accidental judgements, casual slaughters,
Of deaths put on by cunning and forced cause,
And, in this upshot, purposes mistook
Fall’n on the inventors’ heads…”
