Ad the Spad

There is a young special adviser/ A paid-up News Corp sympathiser/ Who says he was sacked/ Tho his actions were backed/ By superiors older & wiser. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/leveson-inquiry/9289559/Leveson-Inquiry-Jeremy-Hunt-raised-no-concerns-about-Adam-Smiths-contact-with-News-Corp-over-BskyB-bid.html

“My Bad”, says Spad

The special adviser, or SPAD/ Is a highly expendable lad*/ Who will carry the can/ When the shit hits the fan/ So the minister doesn’t look bad. /// (Or lass, obviously – but in this case…) http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/leveson-inquiry/9226216/Jeremy-Hunt-admits-links-between-adviser-and-News-Corp-clearly-not-appropriate.html
