Translation:

taum: sullen angry mood, peevish.

Those vicars at the roadblock are in a sullen angry mood after the paltry amount that landed in the collection plate yesterday on top of the general poor church attendance.

Then being tasked with keeping those poor refugees from Kent away along with the aimless wandering covid carrying brexiters aiming to start another outbreak of trouble in the parishes.

So keep silent and do not start expounding your theories on flower power, re-incarnation, conversing with the deceased, or any of your out of the body experiences.
