GTC's demise more mocked than mourned

11th June 2010 at 01:00

So, goodbye GTC

Kangaroo court of last resort

Noble descrier of innuendo

And drunken behaviour

Out of school

You mimicked real groups

Like the GMC, but stooped

To a level of mealy-mouthed

Goody two shoes

Lunacy, faithfully reported

In the trade press and the Daily Mail

So perhaps less adieu

And more au diable.
