Hull, UK - 19/06/07. Burger King shares plummetted today with the news that John Prescott had cancelled the long-standing contract to supply food to Prescott Manor.
The contract had been running successfully for over twenty years with daily shipments of Extra Large Double Whoppers being delivered every hour. Shares in Eddie Stobart, the haulage firm, were also down on the news.
The City was buzzing with activity at the news.
"This could be the end of the road for Burger King," said one stockbroker, Julian Farquar-Porridge. "With their major client gone, they will have to hope that their current negotiations with Dawn French are successful."
Rumours that Pukka Pies had won the lucrative Prescott contract were at this time unsubstantiated.
