I was a bit. Also the twelfth of July is only two days away.

And they're getting themselves into the mood already. This from the Herald today.
A RACIST banner making derogatory comments about Celtic forward Scott Sinclair and hung on a Belfast bonfire ahead of the traditional ‘Eleventh Night’ celebrations has provoked outrage.

Police in Northern Ireland are investigating after a banner with the words ‘Scott Sinclair loves bananas’ was festooned on a pyre in the car park of Avoniel Leisure Centre in the east of the Northern Irish capital.

May launching a desperate attempt to generate some sympathy today:

Theresa May 'shed a tear' at election exit poll

All it did for me is confirm her self-centred nature, oh so emotional about her own personal disaster while running away from people like the survivors of the Grenfell fire. And of course there's her utter insistence that austerity must go on and a hard Brexit is an acceptable option, again showing her utter lack of concern for anyone but herself.

Even after the Twelfth is over, they're staying in the "mood". These people are completely outside the normal political spectrum. May really has to stop flirting with their parliamentary wing.

I think flirting time is well past. May has already enjoyed a post-coital cigarette and left the money on the dresser on the way out.

I think you've got that the wrong way around.
