Scone free...

John Prescott suffered from bulemia? That takes the big, chocolate-coated sugary calorific biscuit, that does. He's had some of the symptoms with none of the vomiting, from the look of him. Poor John. Someone was telling me about John when he went to an event at a Hull school last year and they'd laid on hot buttered scones as refreshment. John ate one, commented on how great they were and then ate another three as people stared on gobsmacked at his impressive intake. Then, scones scoffed, it was time to depart - as he left the school he swung by the kitchen. Everyone thought he was going to congratulate the kitchen staff for their fine baking but no, he came trotting out seconds later with a carrier bag full of scones. "To eat on the train!" he shouted as he squeezed out the school doors. What a guy. A fine ambassador for Hull and its many chubby folk.

'John Prescott has eating disorder' must be one the least surprising news stories 'The Times' has ever revealed. When I saw it yesterday I looked for their similarly up-to-the-minute news that the Titanic had sunk.

When I drove past his house yesterday I noticed a large white van with a satellite dish on the top. It was either a news crew following up the revelation, or a burger van looking for some easy custom.

It left me speechless and had to think whether it might be 1st April.
Mr Creosote comes to mind...

Did you buy a copy of The Times today (or was it yesterday)?

Anyway, a whole supplement devoted to Hull.
