There was an art buyer and seller
Who throttled his partner Nigella
Can have no excuse
So cops went and cautioned the fella.*
*Alternative ending if you prefer: “Although one drinks claret not Stella”
BBC star Stuart Hall/
Preyed upon girls who were small/
Just over a year/
In prison, I fear,/
Makes most people ask “Is that all?”
There was an old Istanbul park/
Which lately provided the spark/
For public dissent/
Till riot cops went/
And cleared them all out after dark.
Rouhani, who ran in Iran,
And not the Supreme Leader’s man
Has won the election
A change of direction
That wasn’t in Khamenei’s plan.
There is a new boss at Man City/
Who says he will make the side pretty/
Is not short of cash in the kitty.
There once was a woman named Wendi
Who tried to make ol Rupert trendi
A failure of course
He wants a divorce
& now he can find a new friendi
A bank chief exec known as Hester
Is going to leave RBS to
Explore pastures new
It smells like a coup
Which hasn’t impressed the investor.
A batsman named Warner was dumped
Because of a rival he thumped
When asked why that was
The fellow from Oz
Replied no idea mate, I’m stumped.
3 women who went & protested/
In Tunis were swiftly arrested/
Removing their tops/
Got heat from the cops/
And 4 months for going bare-breasted.
There was an old fellow named Gove,
A rather peculiar cove.
Requiring a wheeze
To change GCSEs
He did it by numbers, by Jove.
