"Tour de France to start from Tower Bridge in 2007" [see SE1 headlines]
I know these cyclists are all supposed to be on drugs, but surely that's too much. Will SE1-ers line TBR in stripy jumpers and berets? Will Manze's do pie, snails and mash? Are we to be invaded and annexed by La Belle France before 2007? Will the tank at Bricklayers Arms finally fire a shot in anger as the Gallic hordes claim Mandela Way
as ther own (finally letting slip that they've been behind the dire postal service for years and that it was a 5th columnist disruptive action to wear down our resistance)?
Whatever next? "Milk Race to start from Vinopolis
...if you press it, they will come.
