Chandlers Freed, Good News Indeed

This morning on Sunrise there was good news indeed
As the Chandlers, taken by pirates, were finally freed.
A ransom had been paid so that they could walk free
After 388 days, held hostage in captivity.

They looked in good spirits as the VT was rolled;
Happy to have liberty, their tale waiting to be told.
It is said that they will be leaving Nairobi later today
So may I wish them a safe journey, as they return to the UK.

X Factor Live Results Show Week 5

X Factor Sunday, the live results show
Tonight who’ll be saved, and who’ll have to go?
They’re preceeded by a host of well known male guests
From Take That, to Westlife, and of course, JLS.

In no particular order, the first act through is Cher
Followed up by Matt, and Rebecca of the glamourously styled hair.
One Direction are safe, much to Simon Cowell’s delight
Then Wagner made it through; oh my word, can this be right.

Mary hugged Louis as she was eventually saved
With the final act safe, declared to be Paije.
So Katie and Aiden must now perform once more;
Which one will conquer and who’ll be shown the door?

There’s been scandal in the paper and news of a fix;
Is the X Factor based on talent or a series of tricks?
Katie was declared as more interesting last week
So Aiden has his work cut out, as he’s not quite as unique.

Everything now rests on the judges decisions
And perhaps, more importantly, Simon Cowell’s visions.
We go to him first and he says he likes them both
But soon he decides that he likes Katie the most.

Over to Cheryl, which gives Aiden two votes to go
And Danni said that she’d like to keep him in the show.
Louis voted to send home Katie, so deadlock it has to be
And that’s the end of Aiden Grimshaw on our weekend TV!

Remembrance Sunday Poem

Remember remember, on this day in November
The people who sacrificed their lives.
Dedication unsurpassed, they fought until the last
So that their children, and our nation could survive.

Remember remember, on this day in November
Our minds cast back to the battles that were fought.
Our soldiers were brave, as their mortality they gave
So that we could reap the freedom that they bought.

Remember remember, on this day in November
The sea of poppies that is eternally red.
Waving in the breeze, symbolising endless legacies
Standing proudly in the memory of the dead.

X Factor Live Results Show 07/11/10

It’s the X Factor Live Results show; it’s terribly en vogue.
Tonight with performances from Shayne Ward and Kylie Minogue.
There’s a mass of pyrotechnics and the excitement is filling the air
As Shayne sang his new single, sparks flew from his derriere!

Kylie is a legend, and commanded the stage with ease
Looking simply sensational; I’m sure everyone agrees.
It’s great that her and Danni can share this experience together
Proving a sister is not just for the X Factor; a sister is forever.

So back to the matter in hand, and with anticaption growing
Dermot will fill us in, on who’s staying and who’s going.
Don’t forget that Simon has been left with only one selection
So will he be with us next week with his boy band, One Direction?

Aiden and Rebecca are the first to go safely through
Followed by Matt Cardle, and Simon smiles as One Direction are too.
Paije jumped up and down and shared a hug with Dannii right there
Before the next act through was announced, to be Cheryl Cole’s act, Cher.

Wagner somehow made it through at which Cheryl looked rather sad
Then Tesco’s Mary was also saved, looking relieved and glad.
Katie and Treyc both will sing, to see who comes back next week;
So one of Cheryl’s acts will go – which one will suffer defeat?

An impassioned Katie sat on the stage,and said “sod it” with her plea
Singing to the masses, “Please, please don’t give up on me!”
Treyc sang Unbreak My Heart from Toni Braxton, with tears in her eyes;
Which act has sung her final note and is headed to X Factor demise?

Simon said that Treyc was clearly the better singer
But Katie is more interesting; so Katie was his winner.
Next we hear from Cheryl, but she refused to give her vote
So next we head to Danni, and she went for Katie’s throat.

Louis said he liked both of them, but voted Treyc to go
And because Cheryl hadn’t voted, this is the end of Treyc on the show.
Katie will get to sing again, because Cheryl passed the buck
So commiserations now to Treyc, that was incredible bad luck!

BBC Strike

It’s bonfire night and we have a BBC Strike;
Members of the NUJ, began their walk-out at midnight.
We are set to see disruption, even to their flagship shows
They say they have a contingency, so let’s see how it goes.

There were tensions over pensions, when this row first began
And now picket lines are being formed at sites across the land.
With some high profile players, including presenter Fiona Bruce
We wonder when the two sides will find a mutually beneficial truce.
