Councillor Falstaff: Throwing Down the Outsize Gauntlet

When a Falstaffian figure of a man waddles up to the bar at a post-election celebration - for hammering Leech's candidate in Chorlton by 259 votes - and starts comparing beer bellies we know we've carried the "strengthening" campaign based on carbohydrate loading a little too far. When Cllr Falstaff reveals that he was in fact the Westmorland u13 Cross Country Champion the message is amplified. Looking forward to seeing Jim BattleFalstaff on the starting line of the Greater Manchester Run on Sunday 18 May and seeing which of us has the better muscle memory. It'll have to be under 45 minutes for the 10k to best even a lardy wobbling blogger.
