Mayor Must Stop Denigrating Tripe says TMB chairman

Sir Norman Wrassle
The Tripe Marketing Board has challenged the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, to "put up or shut up" after the celebrated game show host again used his Daily Telegraph column to denigrate tripe.

Speaking at a hastily-convened press conference this morning, TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said: "This is at least the fourth time in the last 5 years that Mr Johnson has used the word tripe in public to represent something of inferior quality.  We think he's gone a step too far and it's time he put up or shut up."

Sir Norman said the Mayor's comments threatened to undermine the TMB's attempts to improve the image of tripe precisely at a time when there were signs it was being rehabilitated.  He challenged Mr Johnson  to a public debate, saying: "I am prepared to appear in a discussion with Mr Johnson on a radio show of his choice - although I would prefer BBC Radio Cumbria or Hereford & Worcester, which have both proved to be friendly to tripe in the past."
