So farewell, then, William
Mogg-Rees
Who breaks a wheel
Upon a butterfly?
That was your catch
Phrase. Good
Question. Nobody, that's who.

So farewell, then, William
Rees-Mogg
Who breaks a butterfly
Upon a wheel?
That was your catch
Phrase. I got it the
Wrong way round. That's
Why he was editor of
The Times
And I'm not
