TMB chairman offers to fight Mayor of London after further tripe slur

Tripe Marketing Board chairman Sir Norman Wrassle has challenged Mayor of London Boris Johnson to a bare-knuckled fight at a venue of his choosing.

The challenge comes after Mr Johnson described suggestions that he had banned bagpipes in London as "total tripe" during a visit to Enfield as part of the Conservative election campaign.

Speaking from his Lytham home earlier this evening, Sir Norman said: "As a non-governmental agency the TMB has been observing a purdah since the election was called.  But we cannot sit idly by and watch our fine product being denigrated in such a way".  Sir Norman said Mr Johnson had "laid the first punch" and he felt duty bound to defend tripe.

"The Mayor of London is a serial offender.  This is at least the third time in the last two years he has used the word tripe in a negative context. It's time he put up or shut up," he said.

Sir Norman, who was the 1959 North West Lancashire Junior Lightweight Boxing Champion, said he would be equally happy to debate with Mr Johnson on a radio station of his choice. "This is a red line issue as far as tripe is concerned," he said.
