Liverpool: a modern-day Salem

As a life-long movie buff who never tires of strolling around historic parts of Liverpool I was impressed by the Liverpool Echo’s claim that this city is THE place for film production.

Given the current charges being made by Angela Eagle and the national Torquemada Tom Watson who see sinister forces lurking in every nook and cranny of the pro-Corbyn movement I think it’s time that a remake of Arthur Miller’s ‘The Crucible’ could be shot in Liverpool.

Angela and Tom and their allies believe these evil forces, though tiny in number, can use their baleful powers to urge the 10000 pro-Corbyn supporters who assembled on St George’s Plateau to oppose austerity and to seek the removal of MPs who accept austerity.

As Salem’s witchfinder Reverend Hale says after the arrest of the totally innocent Rebecca Nurse: ‘There is a misty plot afoot so subtle we should be criminal to cling to old respects and ancient friendships.’

The picture of Tom and Angela adorned in prosecutors’ robes calling for divine retribution on Satan’s agents is too frightening to contemplate.
