Give ‘Em Enough Rope…


More nautically themed stuff ( it wouldn’t  be ‘Ebb Then Flood’ without a little watery imagery! )

This time it’s a plethora of ropes aboard the replica ‘Endeavour’, which also features in the previous post, Totally Rigged.

“Give ’em enough rope, and they will hang themselves“(and variants thereof) is a cheerless saying dating back to the seventeenth century, but one that is curiously attractive because it is undoubtedly true in real life.

You don’t have to do any dirty work on a person who will see to their own demise given the opportunity.

I take no great joy in watching someone tie themselves in knots, but hanged if I am gonna do it for them..
