US President  Donald Trump has agreed to dissolve his charitable foundation

The Donald once sought acclamation
By running his big Trump Foundation
Which he called a success
But the books were a mess
Which defied any honest narration

Australian MP Andrew Broad has promised to quit politics following allegations he was using websites to meet younger women on business trips

An Australian seeking a date
Once texted the words “G’day mate”
To someone in Hong Kong
Which his wife felt was wrong
And it sealed his political fate

Met Éireann forecasters see little chance of snow this Christmas

Each Christmas we dream of the sight
Of a landscape that’s glistening and white
So will we have snow?
The boffins say no
So let’s hope they’re all talking shite

Clean-shaven Irish Times cultural critic Donald Clarke has called for a ban on beards

When Donald admitted he feared
The sight or the feel of a beard
Was he being sardonic
Or merely ironic?
I don’t care. He’s wrong and he’s weird.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May in Downing Street last night

An Etonian’s dream of a coup
Failed, in the end, to come true
And Prime Minister May
Again starts her day
With no idea what she should do

A Tory grandee Graham Brady
Has given bad news to a lady
He’s got forty eight notes
So it’s time for some votes
And her future’s looking quite shady

UK Labour Party MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle makes a Brexit protest in Britain’s House of Commons yesterday

Westminster’s a curious place
And the Brits are rather odd race
Their latest disorder’s
Not caused by hard borders
Just a chap with a five foot long mace

Irish adults can expect on average to put on half a stone over the Xmas holidays

This month there’s a magical date
When we pile extra food on our plate
So you won’t be alone
If you gain half a stone
As they say that’s our national fate

Former Ireland captain Brian O’Driscoll said taking the painkillers Difene and co-codamol “almost became like habit

On occasion a sporting type will
Need assistance from a little pill
To make sure the pain
Will recede once again
But too much will make you quite ill
