This one goes back to the News Ltd phone
tapping caffufle - thought I'd better post before it's ancient history
Selling Snake Oil
Head scratching time at Canberra castle,
With plans not going very well.
The Queen calls for her cringing vassal,
“Our scam is going all to hell!
You told me that the serfs would wear it -
Swallow all the crap we fed,
But now they say they just won’t bear it,
Speak now, or you lose your head”.
“With Your Highness I’m besotted,
And I have a cunning plan,
For Rupert’s copybook is blotted,
Half his staff are in the can.
So what we need is a diversion,
Say they tried to tap our phone,
And since to us they’ve an aversion,
Kill two birds with just one stone.
We’ll stop the freedom of the press,
(Except the ones who push our cause)
We’ll get ourselves out of a mess,
And then we’ll win the carbon wars.”
