John Prescott - NOT the allotment holders' friend

Thought I should take this to a narrower audience:

From Hansard:

"Baroness Sharples: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness for that Answer. John Prescott set up core strategies in relation to planning that have resulted in delays of maybe five years in setting up allotments."

The noble Baroness is in her mid-eighties, so her continuing active presence in the Lords does her no end of credit.

Excellent; here in our little Somerset market town, we have half the allotment allocation we should have per capita.

Now I know who to blame.

Elby - and you know and I know that making allotments avaialable does more for the fitness and general health of blokes everywhere than any number of five a day co-ordinators and similar wastes of public money.
