Dirty Linen OR Sir Leveson Commission

The ongoing Leveson Commission is an inquiry is into the culture, practice and ethics of the press. This came about of course following the scandal of the News of the World wholescale ‘hacking’ of phones to find/create stories.

Our resident poet Jasan’s latest offering is titled “Dirty Linen” or “Sir Leveson’s Commission” which he says is actually revealing an unholy alliance of corruption at the higest levels of society of Britain.

He says“Corruption is at the core of the British Society which is shocking to the hard working ordinary folks of Britain. Police, Media, Media Barons, Lords and Sirs and Commissioners all caught in this web of deception and dirty alliance.”
Dirty Linen

Blessed be the people of Britain

For living in ignorance

Of the high society’s dirty linen

Which for the sake of democratic prudence

Sir Leveson charged in public to wash

And the details let’s hope not end in a tosh

Unholy alliance of cops and media barons

Phone tapping’s to fill gossip columns

Payments to become lords and barons

All shameful episodes within British realm

Rotten to the core the establishment,

Rules all seem vaguely bent for small payment

Blessed be the ordinary folks of Britain

For who rules never a burden

Rather it punishes them to be in prison

While high society’s crimes end in commissions

So Barons, Lords, Sirs and Police Commissioners

Walk free to flaunt laws again as Board Members
