"Mysteries of Data Pool 3 give Rupert Murdoch a whole new headache" The Guardian

News International must feel quite defeated,
Just when they felt all the sh*t had been secreted.

"Djokovic beats Murray in thriller" BBC

Poor Andy Murray, that game was quite tough.
And he showed that he's made of strong stuff
For in this long game of tennis
Djokovic was still menaced
But ultimately Andy's just not good enough.

"Mick Jagger pulls out of Davos tea party" The Guardian

So Mick Jagger pulled out of Davos,
Being Cameron's pawn made him quite cross
He wasnt the only one who left
For Brazil's premier Rousseff
Thinks neo-liberalism doesnt give a toss.

(I know this was Tuesday's story, but I only caught up with it today)

Why you seek an additional question"

"Iran oil sanctions: To avoid war, Iran must stop playing games" Daily Mail

A fifth of global oil supplies pass
Right through the strait of Hormaz
But Iran's deputy Kossari,
Is on diplomatic safari,
And threatens to close it, the silly old arse.

"EU moves for tougher Iran sanctions" Al Jazeera

We aim to set an embargo on Iran. Is that wise
To gamble with a fifth of oil supplies?
For fuel prices might soar,
And then we're done for
If economic recovery's jeopordised.
