Clerihews on people and events currently in the news. Only Andrea Leadsom was published in the NS.
Is constantly urgin’
To beware of London-based Anglocentric plots.
His supporters to frenzy by demanding that we withdrew
…. Then disappeared from view.
Is a bit of a myth;
One day totally obscure
- The next, he’s Labour’s wonder cure.
Isn’t black or gay;
But her femininity
Proves irrefutably the Tory party’s commitment to diversity.
Has been congratulated for his
Elevation to the post of Foreign Secretary
By virtually nobody.
Is a lump
Of useless, worthless, racist shit
…. And that’s it.
May have bred some
Truly delightful children, but people don’t seem to think that breeders
Make better leaders.
Might as well never have been born;
Once he was tipped to rise and rise
- Now he’s gone; what a surprise!
Made appearances that were increasingly rare,
Once Chilcot had spilt
The beans about his guilt.
Thinks just a trickle
Of new members into the Labour Party would be good,
But not a flood.
