Football crazy

Norman Baker, Lib Dem MP for Lewes, has just made Lewes DC’s ridiculous campaign against Falmer Stadium even more ridiculous. Apparently, because John Prescott has gone to see his team (Hull) play at Withdean, and has been given lunch by the directors, he should now recuse himself from every planning decision taken in relation to Falmer.

Apparently three warm prawn sandwiches and a glass of cheap red are going to influence the Deputy Prime Minister in deciding on Falmer’s fate. I used to have a lot of respect for Norman Baker, but I have to say, if that’s all it would take to bribe him, perhaps we’re lucky he’s a Liberal.
