Like Mr Kelly, Mr Coogan blames the free market economics that Britain tried, and failed, to apply to Ireland’s problem, but believes that their negligent actions were deliberate. He also describes, in painful detail, the indignity and hardship suffered by the peasant population who were stigmatised by anti-Catholic prejudice and the belief that poverty was self-inflicted epub. The Sovereign is the titular head of government and summons the meeting of Parliament—the national legislature, the members of which sit for five years or less.

The poet is sharing an experience, an insight, with a reader whose seal of approval he seeks. The faint irony offered by the closing sentence, and the slight Audenesque echoes, if noticed, reward the reader with the poet's implicit ratification in return, a small stipend in return for an act of fairly humdrum recognition. "The Butcher" offers us a window through which we can scrutinize a corner of the world without any danger of contact with it, a tiny fragment of an England which, redolent of the novels of Barbara Pym or even Henry Green, is closer to the England of Virginia Woolf than it is to that of Muslim Bradford, or to an England with a 3% Black population The Weird Colonial Boy.
