Who’d have thunk when watching Big Brother’s Big Mouth
The Dickensian host with language uncouth
Apologising for Jade’s racist remarks
Some months later would alarm Andrew Sachs
By phoning to say he’d shagged his granddaughter
And other remarks he’d really ought not to?
Yet within a few years when quizzed on Newsnight
As a cultural behemoth, a man with insight,
Ribald revolutionary Russell Brand
Thought today’s politics was much too bland
And consequently we shouldn’t vote
Because those pesky MPs got on his goat.
At least he seemed to think that until this week
For faced with an old punk he seems a bit meek
‘cos when called a “bumhole” by one Johnny Rotten
Russell’s earlier views seemed quickly forgotten.
