I find this paragraph strangely hypnotic

From The Sun:

The other fatalities, five men and two women, were Panneerselvam Annamalai, Rishi Ranjeev Kumar, Vivek Baskaran, Lavanyalakshmi Seetharaman, Karthikeyan Pugalur Ramasubramanian, Subramaniyan Arachelvan and Tamilmani Arachelvan.

The world would be a better place if we'd never had to read it, obviously.

Of course. But even the most sensitive-to-community-issues heart would have to admit it reads like the Scrabble® hand from Hell! Or perhaps the Borough council of some 'stan' in London...Hackney perchance?

Jk, nope. Those are Sri Lankans names, not the type of people to hijack local councils.

@ MW

If you like that, you should try Eunoia by Christian Bök

In it you will find poems that contain Hassan's harsh tax plans

BJ, sounds a bit heavy going and pointless to me.

"sounds a bit heavy going and pointless to me"
