The Jameson Street Collective's new mode of transport

Lord Prescott, former deputy prime minister and Secretary of State for Chinese take-aways, is the special guest at a ceremony to celebrate the opening of the Hull Barrier Reef.

Speaking at a special luncheon for the Hull Association of Street Drinkers, nothing to do with the barrier reef itself, but one which Lord Prescott attends every day, he was said to be excited and delighted at the discovery.

He said that for far too long, things in Hull remained undiscovered, so much so that he is convinced that most of Hull's troubles and woes are connected to the fact that so much good stuff there remains totally undiscovered.

The Hull Barrier Reef was discovered by three men from the Jameson Street Collective who had visited a position three hundred metres off the Hull shore to deposit a member of the George Street Collective who had tried to muscle in on their extortion activities earlier in the week.

They threw him overboard, and instead of a splash followed by drowning noises, all they heard was a dull thud accompanied by an "ouch, I've hit my bleedin 'head on summit".

Lord Prescott went on to explain that the reason he had two Jags, was that he had ordered the second one for his wife from a wildlife sanctuary in Kenya as a surprise, but somewhere along the line there seems to have been a communication breakdown, and a second car arrived, rather then the wild animal he was expecting for dinner on his wife.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
