WRITTEN ON December 15th, 2008 BY David Moss AND STORED IN Foundation of Trust, Identity, What do we want?
Once in Jacqui’s much-surveilled city
Stood a lowly shadow minister.
And a Tory mole in her department
Sent him all her memoranda.
Normington called in the cops.
Damian Green spent nine hours in detention.
Nine hours wasn’t really all that penal,
Not when ninety days had been debated.
Then a meeting of Vaz’s committee
Heard from Sir Gus O’Donnell Himself:
“Jacqui Smith had no idea.
Ignorance in her job is essential.”
