Says Cameron: Gosh, we're reforming the Lords!
It won't take much doing, now will it?
We'll give it ten days as convenience affords,
And hopefully Labour will kill it.
Says Miliband: Labour believes in reform,
And will by convenience abide.
We're going to kick up a bit of a storm;
And then, if it suits, we'll subside.
Says Clegg: Labour's guarding its place in the sun;
Its foul machinations disgust me.
But - after all I and the Tories have done -
Well, dash it all, why don't you trust me?
