I know this much of
On the BBC's Question Time TV programme on 15 October 2015, single mum Michelle Dorrell berated the Tory government for cutting tax credits, having voted Tory at the last general election.
I voted for you
When you were hurting others
Now you're hurting me
May look cuddly but
Harms London says urban fox
Of Boris Johnson
Iain Duncan Smith
I have a message for you
Go take a haiku
I have a question
It's from Janine of Hackney
How low can you sink?

Other speakers include:
If you don't want a Blairite bottom-feeder
If you want to fight cuts not give in to greed or
Tack your policies to a Daily Mail reader
If you want to back a winner and not a conceder
Vote Jeremy Corbyn for Labour Leader!
A sonnet written on the occasion of Lord Alan Sugar's resignation form the Labour Party:
So who invited that spiv to the party?
No, we don't want his cut-throat sort round here
His anti-social manners are so nasty
He's nicking all the food and selling beer
He's telling all my mates that they are fired
And acting like he bloody owns the place
His snotty, bossy, snobbery is tired
I'm losing friends who hate this public face
He came in with another party crasher
And now he's gone but not cleared up his rubble
He's got a better offer - somewhere flasher?
And now we're spared the need to take the trouble
- To turf Lord Cuckoo out of Labour's nest
- Which leaves the task of turfing out the rest
Written on the day that the Conservatives won the 2015 UK General Election:
A search for silver lining
Is a needle-haystack quest
Fear grows and hope declining
Greed wins and stuff the rest
McVey and Farage splendid fall
But barely dulls the pain
The silverest lining of them all:
We live to fight again
