Merelize van der Merwe’s video accompanied by ‘Scatterlings of Africa’ music of her slaughtering a majestic giraffe is removed from YouTube for copyright infringement
A GOOD NEWS STORY – Bacup, Lancashire born Johnny Clegg OBE (1953 – 2019) was a singer-songwriter best known for mixing modern western vibes with the music of indigenous South African peoples. He was nicknamed ‘The White Zulu’ and after his song, Scatterlings of Africa, reached No. 44 in the UK Singles Chart in February 1983, it featured as a remix on the soundtrack to the 1988 Oscar winning film Rain Man.
More recently in February, after she mercilessly massacred a giraffe after she was given the ‘opportunity’ to kill it as a Valentine’s Day gift by her heartless husband, Merelize van der Merwe decided to use Scatterlings of Africa as the tune to accompany a 1:34-minute video she uploaded to YouTube of the killing.
Fortunately now, after an eagle eyed reader of The Steeple Times contacted Johnny Clegg’s son, YouTube have now intervened and ‘Merelize The Monster’s’ gruesome attempt at self-publicity has been removed on the basis of copyright infringement.
A graduate of the London School of Economics, Matthew Steeples is a writer and marketing consultant. He conceived The Steeple Times as a media arena to fill the void between the Mail Online, The Huffington Post and such organs as the New York Social Diary in 2012.
After a successful and swift campaign by ‘The Steeple Times,’ chef Jason Atherton is to be saluted for doing the right thing and banning the sickening goat slaying Capreolus Club from his premises; it is time these barbarians were banned full-stop.
Matthew Steeples suggests that cool-and-collected Coleen Rooney very much deserved her victory over the mendacious minx Rebekah Vardy; the lesson from the ‘Wagatha Christie’ case is not to take legal action when you know you’ve told porky pies.
‘The Steeple Times’ launches a petition calling on Mayfair’s Mark’s Club – owned by the bouffant haired billionaire Richard Caring – to cancel an event for the Capreolus Club – an organisation that shockingly charges its members to shoot GOATS in the British Isles.

As government of Gibraltar auctions a seized £65 million oligarch superyacht with interiors by Jeffrey Epstein’s favourite designer to ‘bargain seekers,’ Matthew Steeples asks: “Why haven’t other seized ‘questionable assets’ been sold off already?”
In actually showing the British public how to actually cook a meal costing no more than £1 per head, TV chef Miguel Barclay contributes something useful whereas the likes of food bank fighters Lee Anderson MP and Jack Monroe continue just to carp.
