Mark Thatcher

Mark --- who was so often regarded
As a bit of a ninny ---
With others in 2004 tried to overthrow
Equatorial New Guinea.

This particular country was picked
If memory serves
Not for beauty but because of vast
Oil & gas reserves.

He paid a pretty enormous fine and then
Avoided jail.
(Having lots of money comes in handy
If coups fail.)

Having connections is also essential whenever
Attempting something sinister.
If you haven’t guessed, his mummy once was
England’s Prime Minister.
