France has painted all her buses red so nobody suspects anything

John Prescott, the former shadow boxing minister for Northern Affairs, has declared his intention to take up jogging in a bid to become this year's 2012 Olympic mascot, sponsored by cheese manufacturer, President. They confirm they have come under considerable pressure to accept a late entry into a competition normally open only to latecomers.

"This is simply my way of showing my commitment to Britain's Olympic doodah. Mr Sarkozy and I have been working closely together to ensure that Paris 2012 becomes the most successful games ever" he said.

When reminded that London won the bid he replied, "Look sunshine, I am 100% committed to helping Britain do what Britain does best and if that means losing a bit of weight, a logo, games or anything else, so be it. With the games in Paris, London gets to be free of the inevitable congestion on the new infrastucture and I'll get a free t-shirt. In fact, I'm asking Boris Johnson to introduce a national digestion charge to reduce the number of lame weight jokes".

Olympics supremo Lord Coe, said it was an interesting proposal and if there was a medal or a stylish t- shirt in it for him it would save 'une énormité' of hassle'.
