Coe admits links to ICF

SEBASTIAN Coe has revealed he was once a leading member of West Ham’s notorious Inter City Firm.

As he backed the club’s bid for the Olympic Stadium, the Tory peer, sporting a tattoo of Bobby Moore headbutting a policeman, warned that Tottenham Hotspur’s rival bid would be rigorously opposed on a patch of wasteground.

He then led the delegates in a 20-minute rendition of I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles littered with a variety of obscene hand gestures and the word ‘cahnt’.

Lord Coe said: “One must consider the sporting legacy the games shall leave for future generations, as well as how them north London slags will eat their dinner with no fucking teeth.”

The former middle distance runner, interviewed in The Sock & Snooker Ball on the Barking Road, also revealed that his famous rivalry with Steve Ovett stemmed from the fact that Ovett was a Milwall fan.

He said: “There were many times in ’79 when I came second to Steve as I didn’t want him thinking I was running away from him.

“I remember one meet at Crystal Palace where I chased him out of the stadium with Tessa Sanderson’s javelin for giving it large about Billy Bonds.”

Lord Coe stressed that when the decision is made later this week he and two dozen friends will be standing outside wearing strangely bulky-looking jackets.

Cambridge-educated Daniel Levy, chairman of Tottenham Hostpur, said: “Lord Coe’s behaviour in this affair has been absolutely unacceptable as he will undoubtedly get the filth sniffing around before things can get proper handy.

“All I would say is me and him, no tools, winner takes the stadium – if he’s got the fucking stones.”

BBC launches inquiry into what working class people like

THE BBC has ordered a multi-million pound investigation into the tastes of the poor.

BBC1 chief Danny Cohen had berated executives for producing a surfeit of cosy, middle-class sitcoms in which professional parents berate their tall, well-nourished children for not putting the top back on the Waitrose Finest Orange Juice.

He said: “As broadcasters we must reach out to lower-income families, who haven’t really been able to enjoy television comedy since the one about the people who worked for a nationalised bus company.”

The corporation has now commissioned extensive research into the ghastly peccadilloes of the untermenschen.

A spokesman said: “We understand they enjoy pre-sliced bread, strongly flavoured yoghurt, loud arguments and pies.”

Cohen has already ordered a series of pie-based sitcoms, including Keep It In The Pie, Family Pies and the grotesquely offensive French-themed comedy ‘Allo Pie.

He added: “Nothing captures the hearts of the masses like cheap cuts of meat encased in flaky or short crust pastry. That is what a pie is, yes?”

Working class lady, Nikki Hollis, said: “It’s true that I’m not really a fan of My Family. Maybe it’s because I can’t relate to the characters and their affluent bourgeois lifestyle.

“But more likely it’s because it feels like someone has wedged my mouth open and is shovelling in spoonful after spoonful of freshly squeezed Labrador excrement.

“I don’t find it class-ist. I find it shit.”
