Subject: RE: BS: The Hartlepool Monkey (Continued)
I heard an interview with the new Mayor on NPR a day or so ago. He came across well: described himself as "just an ordinary guy" and freely admitted that the idea of running for office first arose "in the pub after a few pints." At least he's honest enough to admit it. The down-side of having been elected is that he has to resign his exalted position as mascot for the local footballers.
