Bar humour

  • Comment

Delightful to hear more evidence of John Prescott's droll sense of humour. It happened just after Master Euan Blair - the boy whose eponymous 'factor' apparently caused his Dad to OK the building of the Millennium Dome in the first place - was found in an intoxicated state in Leicester Square. Big John had an incisive question to ask of the bidders in the Dome re-use competition. 'Has your proposal got any bars or pubs in it?' he asked one of the teams at a select committee hearing. 'Because if it has, I hope you won't be allowing the sale of alcoholic drinks to minors, ' he quipped.
