Subject: The Hartlepool Monkey (Continued)
The saga of the Hung Monkey Continues !!!!!

I repruduce for those who may not suscrib a copy of the "Annova" bulitine on the election of a Mayor for Hartlepool.

"A "monkey" has been elected Mayor of Hartlepool.

The town, famous for once hanging a monkey on suspicion of spying, saw Stuart Drummond, also known as H'Angus the Monkey, storm to victory in the race for Mayor.

H'Angus is better known for his outrageous antics acting as mascot for Hartlepool United Football Club.

Mr Drummond's platform included free bananas to schoolchildren, as he beat the Labour candidate by 603 votes in the second round.

However, his pitch-side persona has courted controversy which has resulted in him being ejected from two away grounds - once for allegedly simulating sex with a female steward at Scunthorpe in November 2000, the second for acting improperly with an inflatable doll at Blackpool 12 months ago."

I think ther's a songt here somewhere !!
