It is reported that at Labour campaign events the leadership has been begging its supporters not to abuse journalists for asking questions.
Left wingers might not be much use,
But they are experts in abuse;
They are determined to condemn
You if you don’t agree with them.
A favourite target is the Press,
Who do not always answer ‘yes’,
And like to question – it’s their job –
Even surrounded by a mob.
So at events in this campaign.
Supporters were asked to refrain,
From booing at the questions asked,
And had they this instruction grasped?
Initially it seemed they had;
Behaviour started not too bad,
But habits which are old die hard,
A problem now in this regard.
For when it got to question three,
It seems the aforementioned plea,
Had been forgotten or ignored,
Or were they all just getting bored?
So it seems it is back to type,
And notwithstanding all the hype,
If with the Left you don’t agree,
Prepare then for the third degree.
