The ex-tabloid editor Andy/
Admitted that when he got randy/
He romped in the sack/
With fellow Screws hack/
Rebekah (his boss, which was handy)
A hedgie commuting by rail/
Whose fare-dodging went off the scale/
Has had to repay/
But being so rich, avoids jail.
A 9-month old boy from Lahore/
Is not on a rap any more./
Attempting to murder -/
Could this be absurder?/
At least they can wait till he’s 4!
Sue Townsend is gone, rest her soul/
Who gave us all Adrian Mole./
He wrote the odd poem/
(You probably know ‘em)/
On Thatcher & love & the dole.
Oh pity the weary MP/
Relaxed by the odd G&T/
Attempting to nurture/
The Commons researcher/
By placing a hand on a knee.
A fellow named Myners, a Lord,/
Has quit the Co-operative board./
He kicked up a storm/
With plans for reform/
That most Co-op members deplored.
A minister known as Maria/
Resigned, saying ‘It is now clear/
I’m just a distraction’/
Though this drastic action/
Was not, I suspect, her idea.
A wind from a far distant land/
Has blanketed England in sand/
For people with asthma/
This grainy miasma/
Is more than our poor lungs can stand.
The NAO reckons the sale/
Of shares in the old Royal Mail/
Was done at a price/
In spite of advice/
That short-changed the state – epic fail!
